Title: RAf rescue launch
Post by: coch y bonddu on April 07, 2020, 05:52:23 pm
As I can not find the original thread ill just have to start a new one if the mods can find it brill i cant,Having built this hull a few years ago and it has been seen at various shows i decided to actually finish it off as all the guns etc have allready been built but it has never seen paint on it .


So the hull was dry rubbed with 180/240/500 and simply primered....the new shafts were put in with new rudders as well

Well as it was such a nice day it would have been rude not to have sprayedhte black on it and fit a few bits that have been built for it.
