This is the stuff I have been baning on about for years and it used to be top stop....i use this on a daily basis on cars I am not into hard work or rubbing filler ....time is important to us in body shops,I have used this on Balsa wood.....ok you have to be very careful on this wood as it is so so soft but it does the job admirably,the beauty of this product is that you can use it a fill imperfections after priming,not many car fillers can do this without showing after a reprime,I also use this on plastic card as it seems to stick to the plastic without falling off like a lot of fillers.


Yes of course I know it is expensive but Hey ho quality products always are



Andy.....I have a tin of this same size as what I have shown in the link and it is 4 yrs old and it is still usable,Just make SURE 100% you put the lid back on it straight away and it will NOT dry up.

Andy,
Totally agreeing with what Dave and Mark have said. I will be going down the same path to correct my original fault - sorry! Like wise my tine of UPol is just keeping perfect, just like the similar product I used before that. It's what Andy G. uses too.

Yes thanks all it is on the way for future.
For now the deluxe Materials putty actually did a good job and doesn't shrink or crack but the thicker it is the longer time to dry.

Meanwhile I've nearly broke the back of the rear cabin assembly. The bulkhead will be held in place with 3x3mm and 5x2mm screws so only a few minutes to dismantle. This obviously makes painting and detailing so much more accessible especially if you forget something and realise later on.
Tasks like texture coating the upper control floor a doddle

The side wall will eventually be glued to the comms tower support wall and the screws removed and holes filled. For some time to come it's more desirable that I can separate this.

I expect the Jet drive new parts this week and will use another thread to do a complete fitting guide my way. I say my way because there are always more ways to skin a cat so it is open to do what you like and advise of better options if you have ideas

I had so many other things to do yesterday  :((
However I did get a bit done to a point that it all fits and can be fine tuned later.









Likely hinge



Something to build on with a styrene infil perhaps. T profile I'm thinking to the sliders will be captive



People keep asking me what order to do things? well in most cases it's just a matter of how you feel and what you fancy.
The only override is that anything you do must not cause an impact on things you need to do later. Example, you wouldn't glue the deck on until you've finished everything inside the hull
Just now I'll have a break and contemplate the drives that I now have a tracking number for  :-))

Hi Andy.


Are you using some form of template to equally space out the hole positions and drilling.

No Declan just a tape measure rule and pencil and a steady hand. The bolts are slightly overscale but because I'm not using washers they appear OK

Maybe some help but at peoples own risk  :-)


The side panels find the centre. Measure 2.5mm either side of centre then 5mm intervals gives 22 bolts


The big panel measure centre and 5mm intervals either side equals 29 bolts including the centre


Drill line 5mm from edge all around


This is as 13-01

I've just placed another order with Knupfer and they haven't even asked for advanced payment, seem to trust previous customers. I pay by bank transfer in euros.


After marking out I spot drill all the holes with the tip of a 0.8mm drill bit and if they then look ok I drill through and then re drill 1mm before following with 1.4mm tap

Re that post about the deluxe filler. I said on another post I've not been convinced yet it's just decorators caulk in a small squeeze tube.  As Stavros mentioned there's better out there. Also for small holes we used a single part putty "knifing putty" in the shop, nothing else 2k usually fills pin holes or micro cracks. It's like the squadron putty but finer, flexible and made in a bigger tube. Perhaps Stavros / coch ye bondru can help as I'm needing it now but can't remember what it was called.

My filler arrived by DHL today. Threw it over my 2 metre fence so nicely dented, good job I have some filler for it  {-)


Not much filling left to do and bulkhead now also secured by the windscreen hinge bolts (I've ordered miniature countersunk ones for later) Paxolin CA'd to the resin so I could tap it from above












The screen side channels will hide the gaps

Tonight I've taken the deck off to start looking at the running gear.
I've fixed this GRP sheet to a piece of 6mm Paxolin with two of the 3mm screws that hold the servos in place



The paxolin will be glued to the hull
Something like



So this whole unit can be removed with just the two screws via the centre hatch





I can't set this up until the trim tabs are in place.


The 2mm SS servo rods will come up though Joysway bellows behind the servo arms then angle 90 degrees to forwards through them.

...nope, I can picture the tubes, just can't remember the name.  Probably essentially the same  stuff though!!



...Are you using copperclad to screw servos down?  Seems a bit of a waste of copperclad!

Wasn't sure which direction to go today but with all the GRP and resin work my craft room was a tip and time for another clean up.
Two hours later .........


As it's cracking the flags today I thought to get the deck fully primered.



Then I turned my attention to the stern and an opportunity to share my ideas with Kim as so far I've been taking his work  :-))


I've started with a template that can be used either way up to produce both fittings.
Initially I was thinking of brass sheet but I didn't have any thick enough and when I spotted the small pieces of double sided copper GRP I bought months ago it was a no brainer.
About the right thickness can band saw and table sand it drill & tap it and solder to it .


As this will be painted there is also no need for nickel bolts.


I will cut off all but the corner bolts and use those as fixings to the deck
