Re: Torpedo X 0.16

It's been fun, but also frustrating trying to find scale parts. I will probably have to make them or skip some.

Chug, use your plans and scale up or down.

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

Re: boat weight

We have a sand and gravel yard nearby that has a truck scale big enough. They weighed our trailer and boat, the truck, and the combination. They thought the boat was really cool and did it for free.

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

Not sure the little girl will tow well. :lol:

Stained the cover boards and made a scoop for the hatch. Hopefully I'll get the rest of the decking on this week.

Re: New member

Welcome aboard. The Zip is a fun boat that you will enjoy. Post pictures. Windshield brackets are available and glass can be cut at local glass shops. Use stiff cardboard or thin cheap plywood to make templates.

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

Wow!! It's been such a busy winter. All the work on the trailer and refreshing the Torpedo has kept me busy, besides all my other duties and a month in Scottsdale.
