    What a fine looking craft. I am amazed at the level of craft being made by all modellers on this site. Well done. I used 2000 grit wet and dry with brasso to finish polish the West system epoxy on out side on my Venice water taxi. I will post some of the latest shots soon. Cheers and keep up the good work.

    Amazing skill, even though it was probably very difficult and intense work you have made an excellent addition to your model which many will marvel at when they admire it.

    I admire your patience using the method you describe for making the frame for the screen.
    I have recently made a very similar screen using a completely different method. When I have some photos of it I will show you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I cut the inside with a jigsaw and the outside with bandsaw, first the inside cutting an filling, than the outside on the bandsaw, this way itโ€™s strong and wonโ€™t bend when handling

    Finished the window frames, I used 1mm aluminium plate with 0,75mm vivak clear sheet. It was a lot of tryouts and faults. But job done!

    Beautifully engineered it must have taken a lot of time and patience to make them out of sheet material
    can I offer another solution for a future system, use an appropriate channel section and use aluminium solder to join the corners, I was always sceptical about this aluminium solder so tried it out just prove it didn't work but guess what it does work and makes a strong joint and is easy to use - give it a go
    That's not to say what you have produced is in any way inferior I think they are great

    Hello everyone,
    What is the name of the paint that restores matt model windows to a reasonably transparent state?
    Michel-C searches and searches and . . .
    Every tip welcome, thanks.

    You've made a really nice job of those window frames.
    The last set I made using thin ply, but thin aluminium sheet would be a bit more forgiving and robust whilst being worked on.

    Nicely done renew๐Ÿ‘
    I couldn't make up my mind whether to make the window frames, for my restored Sea Scout see pics, from mahogany or alu. You just made up my mind.๐Ÿ˜€ Alu it is (or will be๐Ÿ˜‰).
    My windows are 3mm green tinted perspex which flush fit to the 3mm ply cabin walls.
    Glued in with Deluxe Materials Canopy glue.
    Cheers, Doug๐Ÿ˜Ž

    This summer mostly solving technical difficulties.
    Replaced the prop shaft for a 4mm flex shaft, with 40cm it was to long and made lot of vibration.
    Tried different motors, now got 3670 1550KV with 40mm 3 blade prop and runs great with good speed,
    Also made water cooling with 2 micro pumps.
    After al technical problems the build is progressing again ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    Dekking finished and made side pods,
