Hi Micheal,

I find obeche very good for gunwales and spray rails as it bends easily and takes temporary pins if your careful, I would put them on before the tissue covering.

Hi Ray,

Looks like the horse has bolted, I have tissue covered the hull.

Will the obeche adhere to tissue. I am using cascamite resin wood glue.

Kind regards

Michael.

Perrsonally I would prefer to use epoxy glue.

At this time of year I find my 2-pack gets rather 'gloopy' - have to warm it up on the workshop heater first.

It must be getting old (just like the boat builder !)...

Hi all,

Just an update on my build, Obeche received and super glue used. Bit of a messy business. Photo to follow.

Michael.

Hi Micheal,

Looks good in the photo, the trick is to pin the obeche in place and just run the superglue in with a capillary tube just where you need it. But I have been practicing 😀

Regards Ray

HELP - I know I have lost part of me sight but I cannot see any photographs smiley I am so sorry cool - I would really like to see this built though and have you managed to put 2 motors and 2 shafts in?

hi there, Michael, your message has just been pointed out to me - as far as the prop shafts are concerned, I would go with what Ray on his plan has shown you. As far as prop shaft lengths are concerned. When I built my model of the RTTL I made up the prop shafts from cut down 12 inch prop tubes which the outer section had been cut down to approximately 6 inches long and the shaft was left at 12 inches long. There was then a support made which fits next to the propellers. Bit of a tedious job to set two of them up - because in the long run its just for cosmetic looks really.

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.
