Hull ready to paint! by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 8 days ago
Planking done, deck stained, some deck detail added (most detailing will follow painting and varnishing). Hull has had a good sanding with wet n dry and has had the grey primer added. Have also given the bottom of the hull a coat of red oxide primer. Following this and any blemish removal, I will get the airbrush fired up for Tamiya hull red for the bottom and then humbrol midnight blue for the upper hull sides. This will be separated with a strip of white trimline before adding rounders and lettering prior to laquer.

Pick-up usually located just to rear of prop and offset to one side so prop pushes water through.

Finished “Costa” planking today and have put in most of the edge strip (need more strip, model shop Friday!). Jobs to do before I start the superstructure, finish laying out the RC components, fit rudder parts, make battery tray etc. Put in a 1/4 square strip around deck opening to prevent water ingress. Couple of coats of resin inside radio bay, 1 more outside, sand and prime. Sand, stain and yacht varnish deck. One question on a water pick-up as using a water cooled ESC! Outlet will be in the transom, does it matter where the pick-up is located?

Costa coffee planking! by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 14 days ago
Good thinking Batman! 👍 Then all is Ship shape and Bristol fashion. 😉

Hear that Doug, but I’ve already addressed that, there is a obechi strip going round the whole edge which will seal it all in especially after a few coats of varnish. Next photos will show!

Hmm! So far so good. Up to the standard we have come to expect 👍 But won't plank ends flush to the deck edge invite water ingress to the end grain? 🤔 Surely the originals were joggled into a rim board!? Just a thought😉 Doug 😎

Hi mate, bit late now but if you mix some black powder paint or artists acrylic paint into the pva, the glue dries black and simply sand the excess away to leave the caulk lines, no chance of wonky or lines that have soaked in too far. Mark

Hi mark, I’ve simulated calked edges with a permi marker and will stain the planks with a nice walnut stain I have before I varnish with yacht varnish

Had a word with my local coffee shop about the used stirrers, they must think i am barmy!!!! but over a couple of days the sorted me with thousands of the damn things, on another site a tip for staining the planks was cold tea, soaked for a few hours the planks take on the tannin colour and just need drying ready for use.

A big shout out to the generous staff in my local NAAFI/Costa shop who where able to supply me with what seemed like a lifetimes supply of coffee stirrers! Let planking commence! I did see on another build forum that possibly the Vosper had planks running the lenght of the deck, however ive decided to go 16cm lengths of Costa stirers instead of cutting full length planks from another wood source. This model is nowhere near acurate in scale, therfore I am happy to do staggered planks.

Great looking planking but most people do not have use of a laser👍

planking by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 19 days ago
using laser technology now ,not as time consuming and defiantly cheaper than a cup of coffee ,only because I don't have to pay for use of the laser😁
