Break the Ice for Mayhem
« on: April 11, 2006, 01:28:39 PM »

Just to break the ice for Mayhem here is a picture of three boats.
From the back is an AeroMarine Challenger 48 (CMB 90).? The two 1/8th scale boats are built from Roger Newton plans. The white boat is based on a Miss Circus Circus (OPS67) and the red one is based on a Winston Eagle (CMB 90).

Dream Weaver and Dream Weaver 3 were painted by my friend who has a car respray business. The paint is water based - Ford Lipstick Pink on the Challenger and Porsche Guardsman Red on the four point hydro. The reversed canard is automotive spray cans by myself, just white and fluorescent pink BUT oversprayed with clear coat lacquer by my friend AFTER decalling.
You shold see some of the paint and decal jobs on his boats - they are spectacular!
