The Perkasa is a scale gas turbine attack craft available in two sizes (1/32th. 37" & 1/24th. 49"scale) Wooden Hull.

Each Perkasa model features a one-piece superstructure which, when removed, gives clear and easy access to the powerplant and R/C bays.

No running hardware is provided as this will vary greatly depending on the type of power unit used.

Not being a 'deep V' type hull, all versions of the model are ideal for electric power.

The Perkasa were designed and built for the British Admiralty in 1954-59 they had three Rolls Royce Marine Proteus gas turbines as their main power plant, driving through reverse/reduction vee-drive gearboxes to fully-cavitating propellers. They were the first warships in the world to be fitted with these engines, they have maximum speed between 50 and 60 knots. Most have diesel auxiliary engines for cruising and manoeuvring.

They are hard-chine, planing boats, 96 ft. in length. The armament generally consists of two 40 mm L.60 Bofors guns and four 21-in torpedoes carried in side-launching chutes.

These are maximum postage items due to length.


Our suggestions for
adding Radio Control to a Large 49" Precedent K D Perkasa Model Boat:

First of all you will need the excellent: Carson Reflex Stick Pro 2.4GHZ 2 Channel Transmitter RC System which is an ideal radio for the classic two stick control with the benefit of interference free 2.4Ghz operation. A Carson (Acoms) Servo is included in the box.

With this we suggest you use:
Viper Marine Forward & Reverse Speed Controller 25Amp which is a Brushed Speed Control designed specifically for use in RC boats. This Speed Controller has a 25Amp motor limit, which means you can use any DC Brushed motor as long as the current drawn by that motor does not exceed 25Amps under load (with the prop connected, under water).
