Serves you right for getting all hot under the collar about your deliveries and hachette came good ;D

Grrrrrrr that serves us right for having a laugh as it also seems you are now two issues in front of everyone else as issue 25 does not go on sale until Weds this week and you have been sent up to iss 26 :'(

Wont be hearing from you for a while then 8)

Maybe by the time you have completed that little lot issue 27 might have turned up ;D

Hi Robert,
Are you chamfering the planks for a better fit?

Is anybody?

Yup - me too :)  little effort with some 80 grit emery glued to a sanding block.  Have a look on my web site - it's a great tool

Am lucky enough to have a Dremel detail sander that has loads of moulded heads for awkward sanding detail and takes the pain out of sanding, just a shame I cant find a tool just as fast for the planking as not looking forward to the 2nd round :-\

Martin

Just a thought, would it not be wise to mount your ply motor blocks in a way so that the motors can be removed if need be shoud one of them dies a death?
As if you simply epoxy the mount blocks into place on the hull getting a motor out could well be a nightmare ;)

Not thought that far ahead yet.
I might just use V blocks silicon sealant and a couple of springs..... nice and quiet.

no problem, motors are simply screwed to the bracket

already had to dismount the motors for treating the inside of the hull with pore filler...

Hi Marki,
The only reason I say that is I don't know what parts of the deck will be removeable yet.
Lift off motors in V block is the easiest I can think off..... unless some else knows a better idea.....  ;D

This is what I was saying, the motors are simply screwed to the ply bracketsl in your assembly and the brackets are then glued to the hull with epoxy are they not?

It may be later difficult to access the removal of the motors from these brackets due to poor access and so he wont be able to remove the brackets from the hull either as they will have been glued to the hull.

This is why Martin is talking of a removable arrangement as if the access is restricted to the motors even with the removable deck then it will be fun getting the motors out if need be.

If you think it will be okay then fine, but if there is a chance it is not then it is a mess to put right later ;)

Just looking back on the deck structure, it looks like the whole deck comes of in two sections.
The rear sections looks like it goes back way pass the Motors, so motor removal shouldn't be a problem.
As say not sure yet, I'll cross that bridge when I need to!  ;D

The scews that secure the motor's to the ply blocks might be hard to access with a screw driver as then run horizontally and not vertically, not much room between the servo rib and the screw head, maybe 3" at most but suppose it can be done ;)
