    I think you will find using EZY KOTE a joy to use with glass fiber.I was able to move the cloth around a bit without my fingers sticking to the cloth.Good luck.

    Funny, during one of my occasional sleepless nights last night I was looking at your build log and wondering when we might see some more. Fantastic progress and lovely work, well done. I, for one, am looking forward to more.

    I had forgotten this was an old kit but if anyone is interested I believe I spotted the drawing on Aerofred.

    "I think you will find using EZY KOTE a joy to use with glass fiber."
    I like it DaveπŸ‘
    Saved my bacon (and nose) restoring the hulls of an ancient Billing Boats fish cutter and an ELCO PTB.
    Diluted with water it also makes a great wood sealer, hardener/stabiliser😊
    Can't understand the problems others have reported having with it!
    Each to his own taste (or sense of smellπŸ™Š) I suppose.
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Nice job on the stern block.

    Hi Dave
    Mighy fine Lookin’ Artur. Doing a great job. Is this your first?
    Artur was the boat that I had planned to build, but β€œchanged horses” and chose NAXOS. I am rather happy I did that because it provides a build blog for each fishing boat type. I sort of wish now that I had a bit more experience In planking, because I now see how it all fits together and with better glue (cyano) I think I could a better job.

    All the best to you in your build, and I am looking forward to see the final product.

    Cheers

    This is the third model that I have made that has a planked hull, first was a static model of a Danish old cargo sailing vessel, second was a RIVA speedboat. This ARTUR is an old kit that was in someones loft for years and never been built so I am giving it life! All the best with yours.

    Planking coming on well, are the ends going to be solid balsa?
    Looks like a nice little boat.

    The forward and stern ends are solid balsa to answer the question.

    Have just purchased this old kit that was going to be skipped after a house clearance. It's an all wooden construction so a lot of fret and jigsaw work. I think the kit is from the 80's, made in Eastern Europe.

    You're right DaveπŸ‘
    A Czech company.
    The model is of a Norwegian fishing boat and I believe that the building instructions are in German and Norwegian only.
    Can't help you with Norwegian but if you get stuck I can translate from the German for you.
    There's some vids of building and sailing her on You Tube; e.g.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfuZGBvMk2g

    https://www.google.com/search?q=Igra+Artur&client=firefox-b-d&ei=g-IOX8vKM4bzkwWIr5qQBw&start=0&sa=N&ved=2ahUKEwiLmOH-jc_qAhWG-aQKHYiXBnI4ChDy0wN6BAgLEDI&biw=1920&bih=949

    I'm sure there's been a previous Blog/Thread about this boat on this site as well!?
    BTW: the flags at the top of the box lid are the International Signal Flags for ARTURπŸ˜‰
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Hi
    Thanks for the offer of translation but the build instructions that I have are in English.

    I did wonder when I saw the box lid all in German and not Czech.

    This little boat looks very interesting.
    Lucky that you managed to save it from the skip.
