Hi Town3810 I read your post again , but carefully this time and saw I need to search under model boats not aerokit plans . I found his site but he appears to have everything but a sea queen which is the one I'm after but thanks for the heads up Don

Hi Canabus , I think you are right when you say Aerokits didnt show the frames on their plans . I suppose there was no need as the frames would already be in the kit. I just thought that as others have probably built from a copy of the plan that they may have already drawn up the frames and its pointless drawing them up again if they are already available , but if not I will have to get around to drawing them up Don

Hi Don I think all of the Aerokits plans did not show the frames. I drawn up the Sea Hornet ones. Canabus

Hi I was lucky enough to be given a set of Sea Queen plans by a member on this forum but of course the plans dont show the frames and they need to be drawn up from the lines on the side and plan views . Its not that I cant do it but it seems silly re inventing the wheel if someone has already done it . So if any one has drawings of the frames for the Aerokits Sea Queen 46" I would be very grateful for a copy Cheers Don

Painting by MouldBuilder Admiral   Posted: 5 days ago
Well it is nearly Christmas again and time to go to my testing river in Hungary. This boat will not be ready but I hope to complete the Police Launch this trip. I have started the painting process on the Pilot Boat. Very early on I had a dilemma. When is the correct time to paint. As I generally use rattle cans and an airbrush, I think it best to paint prior to major assembly. I am still not sure if this is the correct approach but I am concerned with masking an assembled unit. I hope that the glue does not ruin the paint finish when I put it together. It is a bit difficult spray painting this time of the year due to the fumes. I spray in the garage with the door open but I am always concerned about air temperature. The finish looks good so perhaps this is not of great concern yet.🤓 I will now leave the hull to dry prior to applying the lacquer. I have completed the insides of the bridge and rear room and will start to assemble this part next prior to masking and painting the outside walls. I have bought a roll of special low tack clear film to protect the windows and frames. I hope this works. I have used the same film to cover the instrument panel which so far seems to be staying on well. I think that these models by AeroNaut are really well designed. It still amazes me that the model looks so natural even though it is made generally from flat thin sheets.😉 I will attach the deck next and then start on the main structures. Happy Christmas to all.

But how do you know what shape to make the frames if you have no plans? You would have more success with a foam/plaster 'buck' where you can add and subtract until the hull shape looks like the photos. At that point you could then continue into GF or dissect the buck to get the frame shapes.

Aeronaut Pilot Boat by glyn44 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 16 days ago
I have this model 3/4 finished. Unfortunately I have lost one of the metal window frames. I am at a loss as to the best way to make suitable replacement that won’t be to obvious, any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
