I can tell ya this island sucks
you hardly see anyone playiing with boats..


Oh they're there playing with boats but they're all the 1/1 scale variety! 

I can certainly relate being here in China so why not consider building something more akin to what has some history in the islands to garner more interest from the locals. A proa immediately comes to mind if you'd be interested in sail & should be quite simple to build.

I was thinking perhaps one of the US Navy tugs based in Pearl Harbour.  There  must be some other local civilian craft worth modelling as well.

Have a look at www.warshipmodelsunderway.com   , an American site.   Just for a look , stick to tugs for a start, do a search for Ramborator kit by Aeronaut , I`m sure there's one like it in a Navy yard.

Hi Seathug,

I know you are looking for a kit but you might still be interested in this - a real tug that worked at Pearl Harbor in the 1940s.  It's a scratch build, but you never know, in a year or two.....   :-))

http://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/3416-hoga-yt-146-by-capnbob-small-196-navy-yard-tug/

Good luck with finding your tug.

Greg

Just sharing my first wood carving boat

It floats perfectly level on the water

I wish I can find a bigger log lol

You could try  Gluing  a couple of beams together to make a wider/longer piece.

If it was me, I would go for the System Three multipurpose epoxy.  It is a 2:1 mix which is much easier to get right in small quantities than a 4 or 5 to 1 ratio.  You should also buy one of the fillers (probably Aerosil) to thicken the epoxy for gluing jobs as the epoxy alone will run off vertical surfaces.  Thickened epoxy is also better for filling small gaps if your joints aren't quite as good as they might be.  And some disposable gloves are a good idea - epoxy is horrible stuff to get off your hands.

Have fun.

Greg

Contact them and ask for epoxy in tubes for glueing.    Rapid for 5/10 minute cure and a couple of tubes of  slower/stronger 12 or 24 hour cure. Hobby shops and DIY hardware stores should stock them.  The supplier you have listed is for large scale boat building in resin and glass fibre construction, a different kettle of fish, but they should sell the glues too. Just tell them what you want but they may only supply  large amounts , too much for the hobbyist.  Dont store it in sunlight, read instructions regarding skin contact etc. Is there a local hobby store, aircraft, railways ?  They will stock epoxy in modeler`s size tubes. You will need cellulose thinners or acetone for cleaning too.  Yes "rubber" gloves the non latex type.  Good luck, keep us informed and plenty of pretty pictures of the build and your islands !
