Title: Building the Fairmount Alpine.
Post by: irishcarguy on November 06, 2011, 09:03:29 AM
Has anybody on the forum started a build of Billings Fairmount Alpine, I have bought the kit but as yet have not started to build it. I have ordered most of the electrics & already have the radio ( Robbe F14 ) I would love to hear from prospective builders. The quality of the kit is very good except for the CHEAP props, imagine plastic props on a model costing 350.00 pounds, hard to believe.Mick B.

Hi everyone, I really thought SOMEONE on our forum would have considered building or have started to build the Fairmount Alpine by now, if so I would like to hear from you, thanks Mick B.

Thanks Hollow, thats what happens when you get old & dumb. I would not have noticed my mistake without your help. I am still new to the forum but not making excuses for being dumb. Mick B.

Thanks John, that is a nice build he has going on the Dutch site. The tug looks like it has to be well sealed as the rear looks low in the water. I can see it being a problem & I don't have an answer as of yet. Mick B.
