Hi Richard

You have done a fantastic job on this build, I like the sailors a good touch of realism. I have crew for my PT Boat but don't know how to secure them to the deck, how do you secure your crew???

Hi David
I put a thin smear of epoxy over the entire boot including underneath, this I let dry.
Then I put a drop of epoxy under the boot again and stick it to the deck.
You need to mix small quantities of fast setting epoxy.
Hope this helps.

Hi Richard

Thanks for that, I was afraid that I might lose some crew overboard as I had no idea as to keep them on deck, what with the movement of a fast boat,  the force of the wind and spray of the water. Thanks mate.

I am building the Schuetze as a winter project and need some advice on the type of paint to use on the ABS.  I am also having problems finding the right colour paint that is near to the RAL number given in the instructions.  I would be grateful for any help.

Thanks

Hi Comp 99. Please send me personell message via Mayhem  I too have this kit to build and i think you will find the grey colour information supplied from Robbe is not correct. The grey is very Dark  if you find pictures of this class on the net  the colour seems to be a  blue grey on the hull and superstructure. White Ensign do  Grey Paint for the German Federal Navy. Awaiting your e Mail.

Hi
I used Plasticote primer for the main paintwork and Tamiya acrylics for the detail.
I then painted over with Ronseal matt finish varnish

http://www.paintsprays.co.uk/catalog/primer-paints-p-222.html         Coloured primer

Enjoy your build. A nice kit.

Hi MTB thanks for the kind words. I hope you have a speedy recovery.
If you have time on your hands you might like to look at the following link.

http://www.photobox.co.uk/public/customer.html?customer=1022634

This is all the photos from the Solent Radio Control Model Yacht Club, and there are lots, including my boats.
Easiest way is to view each section as a slide show.

Take care. O0

Well, I built this kit just under a year ago with help from this thread and then sold it. Regretted the sale ever since so, yep, I bought another one! I intend to keep this one and actually float it this time. Once again this Forum and this particular thread will be a great source of information as the build progresses. Hey Dicky, did you sell your Schuetze?? Cheers.

Bill.

Hi Bill
No I didn't sell it, its my favourite boat. very reliable, the Robbe motors are excellent, she runs all day on two 9.6v 4300mAh batteries wired parallel [which is all the ballast she needs] and she stays dry no matter what. Sell her, never.
She was also one of my most enjoyable builds once I plucked up the courage to cut the stern out of the hull. :embarrassed:

Sorry Richard, it was J. Beazley who had a thread about revamping a used model of the Schuetze and I think he eventually wanted to sell it. His rebuild seemed to come out nicely. Glad to hear you still have yours. Cheers.

Richard,

    Can you explain to me how to properly install the glazing on the inside of the superstructure? Robbe say that you are not to remove the protective covering on the glazing til after painting. I assume some of this covering must be trimmed away in order to have a gluing surface to the inside of the superstructure? Then once painted are you supposed to carefully slice around each window frame with an x-acto knife and remove the protective covering? That's my take on it. Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers.

Bill.

You got it right Bill. Just remove enough so you can glue the windows in and remove the rest after painting. O0

Real impressive water pics Richard! Looks great. Finished mine a while back and sold it. Such a nice kit I'm thinking about getting another one and actually floating it this time! We'll see. Cheers.

My problem Richard is that I tend to enjoy building boats more than sailing them. Must be something wrong with me!
