I currently have built a 4' 6'' model of this vessel and finished a rebuild of her after damage when it fell off ,with the roof rack, from my motor car some years ago. I built ferocity  from vosper drawings and hull lines obtained from Uffa Fox's book Seaman like sense in powercraft. I have a number of photos of her plus photos of  my 6' Brave Swordsman, and of  a 4' 3' Model of Dark Gladiator. All my boats are radio controlled. I plan to make a 5' model of Brave Swordsman shortly as i was fortunate to obtain general arrangement drawings[ In various roles] from Vospers I welcome Correspondence from  interested parties in fast patrol craft. Regards Mike harrison.

Hi Christian' I have sorted out my Photos but alas the Kb size after computer reduction is 4599 Kb. The ones of the Brave =186 Kb, Pics of Ferocity and Brave= 620 Kb, Pics of Ferocity after repairs prior to painting =507 Kb, Ferocity running on pond =498 Kb, and  the last 4 photos I took a few days ago total 2788 Kb, each averaging 697 Kb. I could email them all to your home email. My Home email is :- 

  mikeandwendy@snap.net.nz      If you do send me your Email address ,It will remain confidential. I enjoyed your photos on your website, and was quite suprised at how many Patrol type craft have been converted to pleasure craft.  I will also give you a breakdown description of each photo.      Regards, Mike Harrison.

hi mike i wonder if you could help me?

i picked up a sad and tatty looking model boat last week and i am trying to find out what type of boat it is. after scouring the net i thought i it was a ferocity. but after looking at your pics i dont think it is. the upper super structure is pretty much the same but i have a lovely sleek funnel behind the fly bridge. can you help please i want it to have a correct ref number.

thanks

Hi , PPUX, The model you have purchased , it seems to be from memory ,to be a VERON Kit of Vosper-Thornycroft's 103 ft diesel-engined fast patrol .According to my copy of International Defence Review of June 1971.  It says a total of 33 having been built for 4 navies. Powered by twin deisels giving a max speed of 25 knots, the craft carries 2 40mm Bofer guns, 2 rocket flare launchers, sonar and depth charges. Hope this answers your question,

Regards Mike

Hello Mike and PPUX,

Here is a poor image of one of several Vosper craft exported to Malaysia. This boat was one of 14 known as the 'Kris' class named 'Kelewang'. There were several other boats of similar appearance (4 'Sabah' class and 6 'Kedan' class). I do have the complete list of Pennant Numbers if you so wish - drop me a PM and I'll forward them on.

You guys are stars !!!

thanks for the info .this is my first boat and i would like to get somewhere near a actual vessel. my normal modes of r/c fun have wheels,wings or blades. like i said before it is in a bit of a state, i think being built by a one armed octopuss with a broken sucker who had never seen a boat before was the start......never mind we can rebuild it!!!! ha ha

where did you source the stunning deck ordanance for your fleet mike?
