Gas Scale Hulls
Hello r/c unlimited hydroplane builders & racers!
1/ January 2023
My surgery went great!
I'm back in the shop.
I will not be able to build hull kits. To heavy to lift at this time.
I'm currently remolding the 1/8 scale T-6 hull kit part# SG121H
The hull mold is almost completed. Working on the mold for all of the parts.
The cowl and ram wings will be epoxy fiberglass. The rest of the parts will be VIP.
I'll email the customers on the backorder list for this hull kit first.
This hull kit will now be a VIP vacuum infusion process.
Custom aluminum stabilizer bracket kit is out of stock.
My guy recently purchased a CNC machine.
He is learning the new programs to make scale parts for me.
I will let you know soon as they are available on this page.
*The Vacuum Infusion Process (VIP) is a technique that uses vacuum pressure
to drive resin into a laminate. Materials are laid dry into the mold and vacuum
is applied before resin is introduced. Once a complete vacuum is achieved,
resin is literally sucked into the laminate via carefully placed tubing.
This process creates hull kits that are lighter and stronger hydro's.
They come with a clear coat finish and standard carbon fiber hull.
If you would like to order a RCBoatCompany T-Shirt
I will continue to offer this process on future hull kits and parts.
New updates will be posted on the website as they are completed.
Thanks for supporting a small business!

ABOUT RC Boat Company
Steve Gualtieri has been racing R/C boats since the early 90's.
In 2007 he acquired 1/8 scale unlimited hydroplane molds from the legendary Bill Fritz
and has gone on to add many new hull kits and parts.
Today’s hulls are epoxy fiberglass with built-in flotation and optional carbon fiber reinforcements.
In 2019 he began offering the Vacuum Infusion Process (VIP), which results in high quality,
strong, durable and lightweight hydro's.
Most of the 1/6.667 scale hydro's — aka gas scale — are now built using this vacuum infusion process.
He will continue adding new hull kits & parts at the highest quality possible.
Thank you for supporting a local small business.
