Alan I just had a look at a photo of the real Boston Typhoon and your water line is definitely to high and you could do with slightly more ballast.

Hello Dicky, the black needs to come down to the 2nd rib.

The image you show there is of the 2nd FD registered Typhoon (motor).

Did you see the image i posted of the FD272 Typhoon (steamer) on the previous page ?

Some excellent pics of the 'Typhoon' on in this thread guys.  Can't take the credit for the condition of mine tho, bought it as it is (Ebay), just tidied up the rigging.  It's a well 'weathered' example as you can see from the pics.

I am a newbie to this site but I see quite an interest in the Boston Typhoon model.  It wouldn't be too difficult to arrange a date to get Typhoon owners together to sail and discuss the model, I am sure we will all learn something from others.  Fleetwood being the obvious place.  Is anyone connected with model boating in fleetwood prepared to comment on sailing facilities?  Perhaps late summer or autumn would be a good time. I am sure we could get a bit of coverage in at least one of the model mags.  What do you think people?

Im a member of the Fleetwood Club.

Anytime time of the year from now is good. The lake gets busy from around 13:00 onwards but there is always plenty of room.

Also im sure we could use the facilities at the club for a brew and sit down.

Alan,

Your "Boston Typhoon" is one of the most atmospheric RC vessels I've seen - anywhere! Such an elegant design. I particularly liked the views of the model on the water. Great stuff...

All the best

Hy Alan
Personally I would'nt go for gloss, go for black satin, and then you can give a coat of satin varnish after it has all dried, brush useing a good quality sable or similiar brush.
