    Sea Commander build.

    My Sea Commander kit build from a few years back. Runs very nicely and its quite a spritely model.
    I am yet to decide on her name (names always puzzle me - I need to get a sense of this boat before deciding) and to add a few more details to her. The only issue found on first run was the rudder tube leaking at the tiller arm flange, purely as she stands up so high on the plane that a small burr on the tube was allowing water ingress as the transom dipped under full speed. Remedied with a file and some minor adjustments.

    Will post a video when I get her back out on the pond, waiting for a few warmer days to come our way.
    Cheers
    Chris

    Nicely built and finished, the colour scheme must be good as so many of us like it. Sea Commander is a nice boat to own, I built one a year or two ago and am very pleased with her.

    Cheers, Nerys

    A lot of detail into that one. Well done. Is the hatch over the aft cabin according to plan? It looks good.

    The extra pieces, hatches and vents, seat, doors etc, are add ons I decided to make and install. I felt she needed a few more details to bring her to life. The kit came with running LED lights which look great, so adding the extra pieces (without going overboard - no pun intended) I hoped would compliment her.
    I’d like to make a map table / locker on the forward cockpit wall to sit over a scale fire extinguisher I’ve since added. Once I get back from work πŸ˜” and complete the phantom build I might be able sneak some time to devote to finishing her.
    Just don’t tell my missus! 😁
