Just finished rubbing down first coat of glass fibre matting not happy with results. Made a trip to a glass fibre wholesaler this morning and bought some tools glass matting and various other items saved a fortune.

Just three pictures showing the first cote of glass fibre rubbed down not happy with the finish and the last two hull cleaned up ready for second cote of glass fibre.  The professionals gave me lots of tips this morning and for a small outlay  the right tools for the job. No more car shops to buy materials.

If you have to put on a skim of filler to get your final finish, may I suggest something called Dolphin Glaze. It is a fairly low viscosity two part filler, which skims beautifully with a suitable applicator. Gives a surface finish that lacks the usual lumpiness of normal tinned fillers, easing final rub down. Also very good on Steampunk Robots so I hear!

Second coat of glass fibre applied. Next pictures will show hull painted in colours applied way back in 1990. The boot topping will be red vinyl this was applied to the original build.
