Wowsers you have made huge strides on this build! I read of your issues with tight props and motors with interest as I bought a cruiser model with the motors and shafts installed, but one of the shafts seems to self tighten it's universal joint or loosen it depending on which way it revolves and wondered if the shaft was out of alignment or some other problem.


Keep up the good work and I am looking forward to loads of painting!


HI
ballastanksian  yes its a job on these shafts an motors but i hope my probs are now sorted
an yes im now enjoyin the painting an im about half way  as its so big an the green deck is a bit stripey but it think i'll leave it like that as it will look like wheathering an anyway after a few wks the paint colours settle to a uniformatey when it gets a little  dusty on the decks as im not gonna do a repaint on these as im near
shattered as this is the hardstest build ive ever done an i want to finish it thanks for takin an intrest in the build
ATB chris  :-))

Now she's coming together! Re the streaky paint, I over painted areas on my Little Monitor decks to look like maintenance had been done to accentuate the hand painted differences. It doesn't show as much I had hoped, but like you say, it all normalises.

Excellent progress! Funnels are a project in their own right.
