Micro Boat Hobby

Micro Boat Hobby is about exclusive small boat models with a high level of detail and a setup that allows to run them with a radio control system. Components to make commercial plastic kits RC ready are on offer, too. It's all about the building fun, but also with a view to good functionality!

A full overview of all models is available here: Micro Boat Hobby website - overview of all models.
