    This is the very first scratch build I ever "started" way back when I was still in school.

    It began as a cover photo on a copy of Power Boating Ontario in July of 1986. I was looking for something that wasn't difficult (never thought that one through) as it was meant as a project for some youth that myself and a friend were working with through Youth for Christ in London Ontario.

    The plan was to keep it small so the original drawings would create a hull no larger than 20" that could be operated with a 2 channel radio and would be a cheap build

    Very Nice Bayliner.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
    Epoxy and Microballons, I have used extensively, mostly on residential construction and full-sized boats. Now on Model boats.

    The covid repairs and updates really cleaned this build up. Took better care to fabricate details and paint the hull.

    This youth activity was probably the project that inspired me to go back to University in 1991 to shift my career aspirations from engineering to teaching

    After about 30 years the model was looking pretty ratty and went through a ton of repairs after being stripped and repaired with lots of epoxy and microballons.

    The kids we were working with not having the best home lives never really finished their models and most were smashed or broken.

    My model was set aside for a long time...yes the Covid years and went through a strip and refinish on the entire model (the details and paint job looked like crap) .
