Gluing by drspock Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
Hello Fred.Yes I buy both these products on ebay.Note that some sellers offer better deals than others.

Gluing by drspock Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
We all use different types of glue for varying jobs. I just wanted to share this,because it is so good. For jobs not under too much stress,I use Bond-it high viscosity superglue; (very good gap filling),time to adjust the work! When in place,hold it and spray with Soudal superglue activator; anywhere in the area of the joint! That joint is immediately solid; you will not shift it!

Deck furniture by drspock Petty Officer   Posted: 3 months ago
My current build is the precedent Prekasa;but this applies to many other PT type boats. The Perkasa is awash with various sizes and shapes of lockers;If you look online there are many choices ( at a choice price!),and they are rarely exactly what you want anyway. I have been making these lockers out of any old scrap of wood,cut to size and shape,covered in 0.5 / 1mm plasticard,hinges and hasps etc.made from a huge pack of profiles direct from china.Sand and prime with etching primer ,and the result is quick,easy,and exactly the style you want for next to no money!

Hi, Its russel smith. 'my KD Perkasa.' If you search KD Perkasa its one of the first results.

Perkasa stabiliser by drspock Petty Officer   Posted: 10 months ago
Very little has been said anywhere about the stern stabiliser fitted to these boats. The precedent kit/drawing does not even show one,although it must be essential to several tons of boat at 50 knots! The tamiya kit shows it,but that kit does seem somewhat clinical. A chap "simon" on utube shows a comprehensive set of views of his model,which is the best I have ever seen,including what appears to be an actual photo of a real stabiliser!

Hello Chaps, I have spent hours listening to MTB sounds.There is one far,far better than anyone else's,but it costs! Model Sounds Inc. (Canada). The postage is ridiculous.
