    RE: Big RC Ship

    cool guy megge,
    I'm not aware of any 'large' boat kits. I'm certainly not opposed to them, just never heard of any. You've basically got two choices, find one someone has started and got tired of, or starting one from scratch your self. It sounds intimidating, but it really isn't (within reason). I'd suggest something sort of 'simple' to start with, and something you think you'd like to be 'seen' with, sort of.
    Something else to think about (not too seriously though), is that this state loves to license things!

    The Scale shipyard could supply the hull for many of the larger models available out there.
    Then it is up to you to build up the running gear, deck and superstructure.

    Some of the more modern ships have laser cut superstructures available from

    RE: Big RC Ship

    That big certainly looks good, but is not for a beginner, as specified in the OP.  
    But avoiding building, there is Graupners ARTS range, assuming that they are still doing those lines, RMS Titanic, HMS Prince of Wales and most of the others in that range are the right size.  The going rate for these is about $150, THEN ADD $150 PER FOOT LENGTH.
