    Re: '' Constructing the box''
    Hi again, just thought I’d show a few pics of my build as it nears completion if I may? It’s been a thoroughly enjoyable build thus far and looking forward to getting her on the water in the next couple of weeks. Just a few more details to make and add, a bit more varnish and good to go! I did build some lead into the hull fore, aft and sides under the hull box and between the outer sheets, guesstimated The weight and after a bath ballast test, it’s about spot on. Most of the details are scratch built including the anchor made from bits of plasticard, anchor chain is just 20p of cheap
    necklace
    from a charity shop. All instrument dials, throttle quadrant again scratch built from plasticard with instrument gauges from a freebie given out in RCM&E a few years ago! However, I have and I hope you don’t mind, used a lot of the ideas in your build which I have read front to back so many times to gleam hints and tips.

    Re: 40'' Seaplane Tender, new build Z8
    Re - you really are putting in a lot of detail. Hi Red, the Spotlight store I mentioned is a huge store (Aust based ) which sells cloth, vinyl, household and kitchen stuff, curtains, blinds, art and craft and just about anything you would want to make, sew, paint, glue, design etc. Check it out here https://www.spotlightstores.com/nz/about-spotlight/media-centre I made the anchors on my HSL from
    necklace
    s I bought from Banggood for about $1.50 ea. You are right, it pays to think outside the box. Saw some string in a Chinese '$2' shop the other day which would make great scale rope! JB
