Default Cigarette Model

[QUOTE=JohnnyStingray;3052414]Thanks for the tips!
And; OH YEAH! I`m interested!!! Went to my first offshore race in -86 and has been an offshore fan since then. Love these old boats. Could never afford any of these beauties, so I ended up with models. So far I have the 1987 "Colibri" (60", one-of-a-kind) and the 1974 Miss Embassy (62", extremly rare) as rc models. Soon I will also have a huge scale C.U.V 41-hull in my "collection", that probably will end up as Gancia dei Gancia or Annabella.
Also have a Skater 399 (57") ready to be rigged with staggered & Arnesons...and 9 other offshore class gas & nitro racers...
Hmm... maybe if had`nt spent all my money on models, I could have had a real one...


I have four of the Nikko models of the first 42' Cigarette Tiger (which Rob Asner of Ocean City owned the actual boat for a while). 3 of the models are in unopened boxes I bought from Cigarette. If I decide to part with any, I will let you know.

Thanks, O.C!

Do you have any pics of these boats??? Never heard of that actual model...
I guess these are RTR electro plastic models, like most of the Nikko`s?

This is getting alittle OT, sorry.

Here`s a pic of what we`re running in race (me & my wife competing in the same heat. The Donzi #193 is her`s, "Miss Jennie" is mine. Both gas powerd by 7hp Zenoah`s, about 4,5-5` long)

Yes it is an electric motor with a controller. I have to take some pictures of parts for sale soon, I'll get some pics of the Tigers.
