The Restoration Continues......... <*<


Have got to the point were the side skins go on having got all the running gear sorted....I have gone for having the servo in the "engine room" this type of boat does suffers from flooding when going astern in the rear compartment.

The restoration continues.....but very slowly..... <*<


Well its been nearly 2 months since my last post, and progress has been quite slow, but over the past couple of weeks have managed to get the remaining skin on and block the bow with 1" thick Balsa sheet. As mentioned earlier on in this project on the original kit the skins went the full length of the hull, but due to the complex shape it was very difficult to get it right, so I went for an easier option. This I think has worked out fine and getting very close to having this part of the hull finished.
