Hello!!!
I let the hardware a little and made the batteries hatch, the only thing it needs are the brass fittings and the varnish

Is it it just me or do you think that people with less ' off the shelf ' parts or access to lot's of different materials as we do often make really good models with what they have at there disposal? I am messing about ( still ) just converting two toy RTR type boats and people like this just amaze me with their standard of workmanship. Every credit to you, your model looks wonderful !!!! Regards, Dave.

 Hello!!!!
Thank you very much for your comments, maybe is as just what you mentioned, if I have access to a good source of boats stuff nearby, surely wouldn’t be looking or thinking  how to do those things  O0 . Both ways I really enjoy doing this

Yoda's Ark plan
« Reply #34 on: March 20, 2013, 07:28:15 PM »

 Hello!!!!
Thank you all for your comments, I really appreciate them.
Sven, the plan came from an extinct magazine called “Radio control boat modeler”, but now you can find it in the author’s page http://www.patscustom-models.com/boatplans.html  or in the magazine editor’s page http://www.airagestore.com/plans.html?cat=173

Wood work of the fore deck

 Hello!!!
Going slowly, by now I’ve finished all the wood work of the fore deck.
In the bow, there goes a couple of pieces that needed to be bent , I needed to made them thinner to bent them with the air gun.
At the end I apply two coats of marine banish

Thank you for your comments vnkiwi

By now I begun making the roof, it consist in a mahogany framework with the roof of balsa, had to use some mahogany frames in the inside in order to keep the curvature and obtain more rigidity

Little nodification to the cabin
« Reply #40 on: April 12, 2013, 07:22:59 PM »

Hello!!!!
The plans marked that the cabin is going to be as you see it in the last picture, but I felt it was to poor, so decided to add a little wood by the sides

Hello !!!
Here you have a picture as she is by now, I installed the portholes, but the handrails are not glued yet because I have to varnish them and another parts, even the cabins roof isn't glued yet, I need to work in the details.

Vents
« Reply #48 on: May 12, 2013, 11:58:51 PM »

Hello guys!!!
 I've been working on the vents, They are not in the plan, but read another thread and the author put a couple of nice vents, made an internet research to find the kinds, sizes, materials and forms.  Here in Mexico only a couple of places use to sell boat fittings, but they don’t have vents, though it would be too expensive asking for only two vents, so decided to build them. I looked for copper elbows, here in Mexico the smallest size I found are ½”, didn’t found 3/8” or ¼”, maybe the hydraulic repair shop could handle that size in another material, but couldn’t find any close to my home. First I cut away the excess of material, then roll an 1/16 x 17” vinyl (the blue one in the pic), and glued an styrene base; to finish the job, primed and painted. They look good, at a scale size they should be 50cm high. Have the feeling that they should look better if they were made with a 3/8” elbow.  What you think???
