Pilot is based freely on a modern 20 m pilot boat. Boats of this
general type are widely encountered along the Baltic and North Sea
coasts. These vessels are very agile and fast, typically capable of 25
- 30 kn. Their task is to provide reliable, all-weather transport for
pilots to the large ocean-going ships. The space aft of the command
stand can accommodate several pilots, so that a single excursion can
take all of them out to their “workplaces”.
The model very effectively incorporates the typical characteristics and
handling of these boats. The model is based on a modern planing hull,
and is very fast and manoeuvrable. It takes the form of a hard-chine
hull of plastic construction. All the ABS parts are laser-cut, and can
be glued in place immediately after slotting them together.hull is
assembled on a Depron building jig. Two electric motors provide the
power. The motors can either be controlled individually (2 x Multi 25
speed controllers) or jointly using one Multi 40 speed controller. The
steering system consists of two rudders.
A complete fittings set is provided for the wheelhouse. The etched
parts for the instrument panel make it possible to illuminate many of
the instruments. All the model’s lamps can be fitted with 3
mm LEDs. The two bow searchlights are very powerful, and in conjunction
with the black rubbing strake give the model a distinctive appearance.
The spotlight is assembled from etched components and is fully
articulated. The reflector and the LEDs are carefully matched to each
other, and produce a tremendously powerful, focussed beam. Additional
working systems can be added to the model at the builder’s
discretion. There is ample space in the hull for auxiliary systems such
as bow thruster, lighting system or sound generator. The model kit
contains: All the laser-cut ABS parts required to build the model,
Depron jig, fittings, rubbing strake, propeller shafts, rudders, plus
the reflectors and LEDs for the searchlights.
The kit also includes an etched German silver parts set
containing more than one hundred components. These include railing
stanchions, searchlights, working door hinges, control panel
instruments and much more.
