Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Wow, Thanks Roberta, Tracy Jim, Joe, and Pete! The perfection of course is in the eye of the beholder and we are our own worse critics, but there are imperfections in the cutting out of the pieces. A few small gaps that I hope will be less visible once the part is epoxied down and encapsulated. Joe,...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Well, it's not perfect, but I think once it's epoxied down to the partition, sanded, and coated with epoxy, I think it will look okay. Here is the completed artwork. It took me about 15 hours to do this.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Roberta, Tim, and Steve. Tim, the artwork is fairly small and even with the X-Acto knife, it's difficult to do some of these pieces. I'm fixing to do a bunch of small pieces tomorrow. The sails and most of the masts are done now. It looks a bit rough right now, but once it's epoxied down and ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

A little more work done on the partition artwork. The process of doing this requires up close work and repeated light cuts with the X acto knife. My wrists and fingers are already getting sore. :D :D Nice thing is that this is work I can do indoors when it's a bit chilly outside. IMG_20171119_080720...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Well it's started. The artwork for the partition is going to be a many session process, but as they say, "A journey of a thousand miles....." All I did in this session was cut out the overall oval and the first sail on the ship. But it already looks cool. This is definitely going to be fid...

Re: Glen-L Party Boat

This is a great way to generate interest in the design. And I would venture to say that if this could be done for the other designs (over a period of time of course), I think that the number of plans going out the door would jump. We'd see a lot more builders.

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

The planes look great Roberta. I forgot to mention that my model building is restricted to the smaller scale non flying types. I forget sometimes that modeling means different things to different people. Most of what I have is at least 10 years old or older since I stepped away from the hobby prior ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Jim, I really like the curved overhang on the front. I've been planning something similar but at this point, I am unsure how to go about doing that. One wild idea I have (an would like to do if possible) is have gull wing doors in the front section of the cabin roof. I am going to wait until ...

Re: Geronimo - progress and question

Looking great Bob!. I really like the blue on that design, makes it look perky! :D :D

I can't answer your question directly (not there yet), but I plan on filling with epoxy, re-drilling, and then using some sort of sealant.

Re: Barrelback 20'

Nice Will. The mechanical part of my build is still pretty far off, but I am glad it won't be as complex as these inboard installations. I'm fairly handy, but never been much of a good mechanic.

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

This looks great Roberta! Glad to see you back at boat building again. :D :D Modeling is my second hobby, although I do airplanes. But the real boat has priority for now. Perhaps you can do a balance test with the electric motor. Also, Leave some means on the boat to access the front if you do decid...
