I have just heard tonight that the drives are on sale now and Andy Griggs too has ordered a pair for testing  :-))
I believe the price is what I paid before all the additional upgrades so a real bargain

Going back a few posts to continue finishing off the top of this cabin wall
The resin casting fitted very nicely having used thick styrene for the backing the angle was coincidentally spot on



I've not done this before but imagined it would work.
I shuttered off the shape with wood covered in that waxy Tamiya masking tape.
Set everything at a suitable angle with weights



Mixed enough Hobby King cheap as chips 5 min epoxy and dripped in off a stick



Tomorrow I'll remove the shuttering and sand to shape I hope

Bear in mind this is in dollars. I think that is seriously cheap even if unlucky to get import tax

Yes, use plenty of 'Belcher Grey' and it will keep the Halford's dividend cheques come rolling into the bank account.



Seriously Andy, it's all looking very good and inspirational [I know a few others who might be thinking of starting an MbD Shannon due to your approach to 'scratch building] and there are some nice tips and techniques being used that some of us have not considered. Keep the good work going, I shall be picking up the reigns again on 13-02 - at a leisurely pace though!


You have done a very good job there with those Ocean Works water-jets with Victor, congratulations.

Kind words Kim and I hope all builders will share any ideas they come up with to produce parts  :-)) 


For delicate small areas I always use Tamiya primer first, it dries quickly and will build up and fill joints.


Here after a second dam and fill of epoxy this now meets the windscreen channel wall sympathetically


Ready to move to starboard side today after I recover from parting with a wad at Leeds model shop  {-)
Also I just bought 10 packs of epoxy from Poundland .......... yes £10  O0

Will need more attention but later



I'm also thinking this could be permanently demountable as the joint would be concealed by the windscreen



What worked on the Port side is good enough for starboard





New shutter






Poundland 5 min resin used to be Tommy Walsh resin

I don't think I can bend 6mm bar this tight but I can 5mm and sleeve most of it, by the time the whole thing is done I doubt it will be very noticeable

Occasionally on my path of learning I will try products that are new to me and the job in hand.
£7.45 for those who care  {-)


I want to carefully bring this resin casting parallel to the revised upstand.
Might take 2 or 3 applications as I'm new to this but I'll keep you informed of course.

Andy sorry to say this but that stuff will just not cut the mustard in this application....reason why is simple,that stuff is an air drying product designed for small imperfections and not for a filling job like what you are trying to do.....if I was You i would scrape it off and use some car body filler which is designed for what you are trying to achieve...................Trust me on this one as I do know a thing or 2 about Grp and filler  O0 O0 O0 O0 O0

I get what you are saying Dave thanks for your input.
My concern is that with the resin (not GRP) being relatively soft I don't want a filler that is harder to sand and risk damage? See how this is tomorrow but if it's a fail what is the best easy sand alternative?

Meanwhile as the final panel goes in I'm certain of my intention that the main bulkhead will be easily removable with screws.
I've not paid huge attention to specific angles here as I doubt few people would know what is right or wrong

Mark T spot on with your advise great stuff dries quickly and is so so easy and I use it to repair holes in resin parts anyway and I would say it is softer than resin anyway.


Trouble is with the Plastic Putty is that if you put it on thicker than the thickness of paper is that it simply will not dry hard and will possibly shrink leaving unsightly cracks,and not only this but will not fully cure and harden.


This stuff is best used when primer has been applied and you see a scratch but even then I will NOT use it as it has caused me far to many problems in the past,If I see a defect in primer I will always go for a very fine 2 pack stopper.


This is what i Now use all the time as Been recomended by Mark T

I know it only comes in massive tins but I only bought 2 tins in over 6 years. Donít worry about the soft resin as it sands so easily I use it on soft wood. I donít think thereís a better filler for what we do 👍
