Re: Pee Wee Build

The hull is sealed with 3 coats of epoxy resin and 3 coats of a 2 part epoxy paint.
Not sure how it will stand up, but Ill wait and see.

own? Hmmmmm.

Re: Pee Wee Build

Re: Pee Wee Build

As here in Melbourne, Aus I have to show proof that I built it with receipts. It comes down to what mat...
