The bag of bits came today from Ricky and his magic laser ,he cut it in 3mm mdf as someone decided their need for the ply was greater ,so we can use this one as a test to iron out any little bugs

MDF does act like a sponge, but I would expect it to act the same with sanding sealer or fibreglass resin, don't discount it too soon👍

Hi Mark , it is the 18"version there have been a few teething problems I didn't notice until after the build start that there was 2 sheets with amendments to the original with slightly longer base parts and the lower cockpit ,I have also been using the original build instructions which aren't the clearest .I printed off the original drawings and then had them scanned Ricky the kind man who mans the CAD facility at my work then worked his magic and hey-presto the bag of bits ,no plans for mass production .

did another wee bit today ,decided to glaze the windows before assembling a bit tricky but a 7 year olds fingers come in handy, the windscreen went together quite well the roofs fitted reasonably well ,may put a 1mm white plastic roof over the mdf ones .had some nice oak strip so decided to plank the aft deck ,the forth picture shows the amended bow(not fitted) im not an expert but I prefer the original that I had fitted prior to knowing there was a mk2

Hi Marky, whats the chance of a second kit of parts cut?? charge of course, even if we send it to charity, the only thing would be, that it was cut from ply not MDF

Regards
