Hello Harry

The decking looks superb, I have always wanted to play with aussie timbers like Jarrah and Birdseye Red Mallee.

Hi Paul T

I used Jarrah, Blackwood and Huon Pine, but, would like to use Apricot as it has a beautiful grain.

Two coats of blue on the bottom so far, two more coats and a few days to harden up.

Painted the sides white and started on the planking for the dash.

Also add the shaft oiler which is the forward/ reverse T shifter !!!

That's beautiful harry, really nice. Once the figures of you and DM are in there it will be perfect.

Those cutouts at the back are begging to have something in them....chrome exhaust outlets, jet exhausts or wotnot??

oiler and shifter.jpgdash planking 1.jpgHi All

Dash finished and vanished, also added the T Shifter oiler.

Yes Ashley the wotnot exhaust would be six out each side, but that's after I get it into the water.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
