Let me know if he doesnít. I think I still have a copy. BTW, my modified Q1 was the first boat I Ever sank. Heeled WWAAYY over in a turn and down it went. Iíve since modified it but it is a fair seas hull.

Nicely done Martin - that's Christmas sorted for me !

With nil progress whatsoever on the big 1/6 scale similar logging tug - my new workshop builds dragging on -
I think I could fill the big'uns hull with water and sail this little gem up and down inside the hatch coamings !!

Hopefully see you next weekend. regards Paul

Howard

I'm not sure its still possible to buy the original kit - only Chinese copies which don't include everything you got. I noticed that the Ebay link Martin posted says 'Print your own parts'
If anyone knows how to get an original kit with all the parts I would be very interested. I have built one of the copies which came with electrics or printed parts.

Barrier you are right I saw a posting from the original owner of the kit and he stated a price of approx. 60£ +P&P and that P&P would be high due to weight of all the parts, he also stated that some people had requested to buy the 3D printed parts and then they listed a knock off incl. the 3 D parts for a low amount on ebay / Aliexpress etc. They even use his original pictures for the adds.

I did buy one of those knock-offs on Aliexpress and got a 100% refund when I filed a complaint.
That is also the reason that the QR code do not work.

Question chaps: Is it advantageous / easier to sand the sheets to, almost final finish, while all the bits are still in sheet form?

....yes, slap on some primer and sand it back.  Makes life much easier later IMO if you have that option, even if you need to re-coat and sand back later.

I would of thought you'd get a better bond with just bare wood as the wood glue will soak into the grain, if you apply primer then the grain will be sealed.
