Default Post your airboat pictures here!!!

Everywhere I go on RCU it seems, there's another "post your pictures" thread, most are successful. However, I don't see one here.

Ok... I can honestly admit that this thread will either be successful with multiple pages or it will be a complete waste of time and go nowhere

Post some pictures people!!!!!!!

Sweet boats everyone, I really mean that. They all look great. I love it how unique some of them are, from design all the way to paint.

I am building a Cajun Gator from his 24" simple plans. It will be a .40 pusher, all I have done so far is cut out the bottom, all of the cage and also the transom, and the engine mounts. All I need is time to complete it, I already have everything I will need. I would post pictures but for one it's not done, and also I started building it in another state and it's currently still there Don't worry though, I will finish it some day and will post pics here.

Keep those pictures coming!

Wave waker, the Iggyguana turned out really nice but I would recommend that you change out that wood prop for a plastic prop. Wood props are known for shattering when any water touches them while running.

Here's WW's airboat in action. Watch carefully and you'll see it doing an airborne turn about 6 inches above the water. http://www.rcuvideos.com/item/772KN3N4Y9Z401S9

Updating the thread for more pics since it's been a while.

One change though, feel free to post pictures of any rc airboat, such as current builds, hulls waiting to be restored, obviously finished airboats and rtr's, your buddys airboat, that cool design you saw online, etc.

Thanks.

This is my Buddy Nitro's boat. He always put his own unique twist in his builds.

Here's a video of WW's boat running, http://www.rcuvideos.com/item/772KN3N4Y9Z401S9 . It was a little windy when he took it out. The video started with 2 other boats on the water.
