Brakengarth #2
« on: February 05, 2020, 08:46:03 pm »

Just aquired a unfinished/ just started Brakengarth, basicly the running gear is fitted and some of the stucture work started.But this one came with a full fitting kit, lots of bags of white metal, so if its there i will attempt to fit it  :embarrassed: .Its going to take me a while to get it ready for the water but i think it will be worth it.daz

A couple of pics to start with, not the best of quality as my phone is in for repair and the standby one is so primitive.I found my spare Marx Ludder bow thruster and drilled the hole for that and the blank tube , i think it looks better with duel thrusters even if one is just a dummy.Final fitting will be done when i get some body filler.daz
