Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum

We're racing through history!

Hi there.

I'm building a 1/8 scale racing U-95 and have been searching for a cockpit/dashboard layout for it. I haven't been able to find any images of it on the web & was hoping that the Museum might have one in its archives somewhere.

Also the emblem on the fin in the attached picture if at all possible as I can't find a clear image of that either. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Great website by the way. Lots of interesting articles & photos.

Many thanks.

Paul.

Paul,

I believe the emblem is the Air force emblem, I'll try to post a pic here.

Thank you for that Ken. That's given me something to work with. Brilliant.

Now it's just the dashboard layout to find.

All the best.

Paul.

I'd just like to say that thanks to your help Ken, I managed to track down some stickers and at 38mm they are just about the perfect scale. 

There are heaps of different ones at Zazzle but the one I ordered is the top right on this page.

Thanks again.

Hey Paul...are you still looking for U-95 dash info?  I had the actual dash from the boat in my possession a few years ago.  Let me know if I can help.

Hi Pete.

Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any images of the dash board. So any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

A photo, image or a hand drawn sketch would be enough for me to build up a dash that would be passable. 

If you , or anyone else is interested, here's a bit of a build thread over on R/C Groups.

I sincerely thank you for your reply.

Kind regards.

I know it's been a while, but the 1/8th scale U-95 is finally on the water & turning some heads.

Here's some video from last weekend for anyone interested.

I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoy driving it.

Many thanks to all those that helped with info & images for the build.
