its been a while but i managed to get back on the build i have done all the lats at last so next job i think is working puff ports that go on the front two each side these steal lift air and vent it from either side to push the front end left or right

I am slowly getting on with the BH7  i Recently i have made the puff ports these pop out from the side decks to direct air left or right they are quite effective on the full size craft but i doubt they will do anything at model size they will be hinged later but i have used masking tape for now

Its been a while since my last post as I have been getting her ready for paint so lots of sanding and not very interesting to see but that's done now and I have started work on the rivet detail this will take a long time but will be worth it in the end the first pic is the last coat of sealer waiting to be sanded

Hi Tim. Looking good. Will be on our water this year? What about the paint job are you going to use spray cans? Finally what is the colour scheme applied on this vessel?

Holy moly! The attention to detail with all that riveting is... riveting!  {-)

Such a good job, truly looking forward to seeing it up on the hover.

Hi Tim.
I bet it will have put on a bit of weight with all that brass.  %% Worth all the effort in the end though nearly there.
Looking good, nice paint scheme too.
That and my two should look super together.
Regards sub.

ITs been a while since i updated the build,I have been putting the skirt on which is not an easy job.the original lift air intake was not big enough so a temp on has been made while i do tests.there is also a problem in that the skirt attached under the hull  down the sides is too far inn and needs moving out a the fingers are getting squashed.but so far its promising
