    Well,
    The frames and keel plates have been fitted and glued without problems
    Tried fitting small bits to bow so that hull shaping can be achieved (not reached that part yet should be about step 20) only to find the anchor guides do not line up and will have to be modified and will deal with prior to step 20.
    Started to dry fit decks to frame only to find frame work to be fitted to underside of rear deck 1-B do not line up so will have to modify, and some of the top of the rear of centre keel have to be remove to allow a cross support can be fitted and also gives access to the rudder mechanism (see picture)as is some more bits have to be removed for a space and access for recommended batteries(also a picture)
    Next job is to glue decks but am dry fitting cabins etc to decks so any problems can be sorted prior to gluing!
    Question?
    As most of the construction is ply has anyone have advice as what I can use to protect the internal framework that is not painted!

    Hi Bonbero,
    Great start to this project.
    I like the forward planning, it always pays off.
    Good luck with the rest of the build.

    I use two part finishing resin epoxy to protect the inside and fiberglass cloth along with the finishing epoxy. This gives good protection both in and outside of the boat.
    Another bonus of this is it strengthens along with protection.

    Friends who have helped ,and am helping me on this forum have shown interest in this project so am starting this Blog.

    I received the kit on Wednesday, which was the first mystery as it was in an Amazon box, I had ordered it from G:K:Modellbau and only realised what it was when I saw the delivery instructions attached.

    I had ordered other bits for this build from Krick`s (was going to get the boat kit as well but they did not have one in stock) fortunately it was €50 cheaper so postage was covered only to find the kit box marked Krick as was the build instructions and a catalogue!

    I started today and have completed step1(as the instructions are in picture format)and after gluing spent the rest of the day cutting out the 26 frames and two deckh and now will have to clean and adjust them before fitting:

    This is the third Model I have attempted(see my Harbour)and the members are go great help with the electronics on the second boat "Dusseldorf" which was a nightmare for me,So "NEWBYS and OLDIES"" please note HELP IS HERE IN THIS WEBSITE!

    Looks like a really nice boat, quite fancy one myself as there are not a lot of liners about, checked CMB
    but out of stock, but it does state that it can be r/c controlled, check link below.

    Any advice is appreciated as I have got the recommended extras to make it a RC model as well as a static when not in water, I intend to go slowly to try to make this a quality boat!

    I have built this kit but had to do much modification to arrive at a good sailing rc model with good access to internals. if you want I can send pics of my model and construction details. This is really a static display model so if you want it as a good sailing rc model much modification is necessary.
