Al KHUBAR 2 by dragon Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Dave i was only thinking about the edging not the centre part i'll keep a close eye on that cheers

TRENT LIFE BOAT by dragon Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Been on hold for awhile while working on Al Khubar. Time to finish it you may have seen it at Haydock (OWLS). Running gear and electrics all working and has been sailed no leaks, Deck railings and all the white metal bits need doing along with a coat of paint to the deck. Superstructure and Fly Bridge need fittings and painting. Lots to keep me going for a while. More to come as I progress.

Al KHUBAR 2 by dragon Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Thanks Dave ill take on board your comments but I always double seal my decks pouring in fastglas resin moving the hull around while it hardens a bit. try it if you haven't already it works.
