Default RC boat plans

Hey everyone! Im new to this forum but feel like i am in the right place for what I need. I want to build my first RC boat but I want to build it from scratch not from a kit and the two boats I have been looking at are the Mystic C5000 and a hydroplane like the Miss Budweiser both being about 52. Does anyone know where I can get some good building plans for my project?

You can get sets of plans for a majority of the unlimited hydroplanes at Newton Marine - The Best Source for Scale Hydroplane Plans
Just be aware, the plans are for 1/8 scale boats that are between 42 and 46 inches long and designed to run a .67(11cc) engine. If you really want to have a boat that big, you can enlarge the plans 20%, drop in a gas engine and run it as a gas scale. The only catch is that cockpit and engine covers are harder to find for some of the boats in that size. Here are some gas scale cowls that R/C Boat Company has available:

and here's his website homepage:

Just a word of caution. The plans sold by Newton Marine DO NOT INCLUDE DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO BUILD THEM!!!!!!

Just got to thinking. There are a couple of clubs in your area that might have someone close by to help you as needed. I would look at these two sites for more information:
