    Re: Billing Boats St Canute Tug Kit
    No sweat RichardπŸ‘ This site is full of us bin there dun that guysπŸ˜‰ "l had a problem trying to plank the stern of the St Canute so l replaced planks with blocks of balsa" He he!😁 I did exactly the same on the stern of the ancient
    Billing fish cutter
    , Gina 2, I am (slowlyπŸ™„) restoring and converting to RC. See pics, there's also a Build Blog on the site. After rough shaping of the block I sealed and hardened the balsa with Deluxe Materials EzeKote resin. Water based so no hardener, no pong and easy to clean the brush with warm water😊 Then used fine polyester filler, the green stuff in the pics, and a rubber sanding block for fine shaping. When done I applied EzeKote to the whole hull. Dried in half an hour outside in the sun. Then fine sanding 240/400 grade, then a coat of grey filler-primer. A little finishing filler on the blemishes which always show up at this stage 😠 gentle sanding with 400/600 wet n dry then on with the white! Patience is the main ingredient though. Good luck and much successπŸ‘, Cheers, Doug 😎
