Police Launch Kit 400mm Laser Cut WBC1002


This striking Police Launch epitomises the type used by MOD Marine Units for overt counter-terrorism policing of HM Naval Bases and high-profile armed patrolling of strategic waterfront locations. Replicating a modern workhorse the model drives well in most conditions, excels in calmer water and looks very much the part, displacing a neat bow wave and leaving a tidy, satisfying wake.

The Wooden Model Boat Company prides itself on producing traditional model boat kits that build quickly and accurately into delightful semi-scale replicas, each as happy cruising on the lake as it is adorning the mantelpiece at home. Using precise laser-cut balsa and ply parts, coupled with a semi self-jigging / interlocking hull frame and easy to follow step-by-step instructions, success is practically guaranteed. Whether you plan to build this police boat for two-channel radio control or static display the process is very similar, as are the rewards.
