Re: knottyBuoyz III The TW28 Project

Hi Rick :D Another stint serving the public and the man ? Boat soon - great news. I'm sitting here in my cube answering emails and dealing with Navy stuff galore, the boat is still wrapped up and moving it home from the cottage this spring I hope. Lots of house renos so boat work will be almost nil ...

Re: Can anyone think of a build that ended with gray paint?

Hi Jwhitakeriii,

My boat HMD19 Penny (page 4 in Builders section) is painted with Pettit EasyPoxy Seattle grey with white topside (painted with Monstaliner); it has a cabin however but same colour scheme. The grey is similar to the S3 high build primer.

Looking great cracked_ribs, sure taking shape :D

FYI, cyanoacrylate (super glue) is affected by humidity. Keep your opened bottle in the fridge to make it last; they are not cheap :wink:

Re: It begins: C1.9

Hi cracked_ribs, Consider styrene sheets for your model ? I built mine out of that - same material as those plastic scale kits. It comes in sheets and in thicknesses from a few thou up to 1/4".

Glue gun is in the tool box; very useful for quick tack gluing until epoxy.

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

Hi guys, When I had to clean up fillets prior to spraying Monstaliner, I used a rotary rasp chucked in a drill. These worked like a champ especially in tight corners.

Re: HMD 19 Fuel Tank problems

Maybe the Forum should have a permanent fuel system "how-to" and 'do's & don'ts". Just a thought for safety concerns which I think is a bit fuzzy.
