Seconded. Maybe now is as good as ever to re-ask your question, Kotori. I've got one of these too and it is also the Mini Hobby Models (MHM) version. Not all that different from the Tamiya version except that maybe the moldings are not as crisp as Tamiya but still very detailed throughout and pleasing to the eye. In the Chinese domestic market, these all begin life as motorized versions but when they are slated for, I suppose the U.S. market and maybe others, they lose the included motor and are labeled "STATIC" with a sticker that is applied as an afterthought.
A far as fast attack craft go in 1/72, the Tamiya versions and their copies/clones, this boat is a great deal bigger than the 1/72 Vosper Perkasa with a slightly longer and noticeably wider hull that should handle rougher "seas" better. The MHM version I have has an assembled brass stuffing tube, plastic 3-blade prop and a steel propshaft already installed that does not hamper its static looks but can be readily utilized for motorization. The model has three propellers and I understand many only motorize the center prop but I'd prefer three props like the original. Great little kit for a cheaper price point than Tamiya--I recommend grabbing one if possible.
