More RC – Introducing Aero-Naut Kits from Germany

Note: We originally posted this yesterday. But our posts get put onto our Facebook page automatically, and unfortunately, when talking about how things are getting back to normal, we mentioned the word see-oh-vee-eye-dee. We have to put the word here phonetically, so that Facebook doesn’t catch it and limit our ability to share the post.  We’re not going to use the “c” word here and hope it works better this time!

So, as the Summer quickly approaches, more and more of us are able to get out and enjoy the outdoors. That doesn’t mean you have to abandon ship modeling! Take it outdoors with these great RC kits we’ve just brought in from Aero-Naut of Germany.

These Aero-naut kits are all designed for RC operation. Some feature wooden hulls and some have plastic hulls. But, all will allow you to install your own choice of radio control equipment.

We currently have sixteen kits to choose from, from sport boats and fishing boats, to workboats and battleships. And, all of the kits we sell include the fittings. So, it’s not necessary to buy a separate fittings set.

Take a look at just some of the Aero-Naut products we now carry…

New! Live Steam Products from Saito Manufacturing

We’ve just put up our newest line of products on our website, Live Steam kits from Saito Manufacturing of Japan. Ages of Sail signed an agreement to distribute Saito steam engines and RC boat kits in the US and we got our initial shipment in recently. We’re really excited about the new line and how beautifully made the steam engines are.

The RC boat kits are all designed especially for steam operation using their recommended engines and boilers and burners. We carry the Boiler and Burner combinations to make purchases a bit easier. The RC boat kits (except the T-1 Steam Boat) do not include the engines, so if you want to build them as static models, you can. You might also be able to adapt most to electric operation. But, we’re sure you’re going to want to try out the live steam operation.

One kit in particular, the T-1 Steam Boat, is designed to get you into steam operation right away as it DOES include the steam engine and boiler. All burners run on methanol. Optional accessories haven’t been listed on the website yet, but include pressure gauges, smoke tank and smoke oil, and optional drain tanks.

The RC boat kits feature fiberglass hulls, wooden structural parts, brass, aluminum and cast fittings as well as some plastic fittings for some items. Instruction in English

And YES, we have them in stock now! Check them out: Live Steam at Ages of Sail
