BHC SR.N6 Mk6 - 1/12 scale

This is the third model of the SR.N6 Mk6 that I built. This model was built in 1999 and was a complete redesign. Lift was originally provided by a LightSpeed 600 driving a custom centrifugal fan through an MFA Olympus gearbox, but the motor was then replaced with a Speed700. Propulsion is provided by two Graupner SpeedGear600 units, each driving two APC 10x7 propellers, arranged as a four-bladed propeller.

The SR.N6 MK6C is shown here on the rough sand and pebbles at Appley Beach. This is where the SR.N2 was used in 1962 on the world's second hovercraft service. The craft runs well over this rough surface, over obstacles of 2cm in height, and sand ridges of 3cm from peak to trough.

Once the hovercraft transitions into water it rapidly accelerates over hump speed. The skirt did not pick up any water.
