    ๐Ÿ’ฌ Re: Dumas Creole Queen
    21 days ago by Hhager2 ( Able Seaman)
    I have built that model twice. Sold them. Best part was building it. I did the body first then the paddle wheel. Installed it on body. Took months on the rest. I had a smoker in it and the Dumas motor. It has to move slow or deck gets awash. No fish attacked it. Had sound effect motor from a kit. As motor speeds up so does the engine sound. I still have box with left over parts. Skewers went to bbq but left over brass from rudders n plastic for railings n mahogany wood. Canโ€™t throw it out I may need it someday haha. Had tone of Ho people all over decks, barrels and stuff. Loved them but no room to display when not playing with it in water.

    I want that as next boat. The walking beam engine moving and a smoke maker would be my dream looks good.

    I built this Victoria sailboat over Covid. Itโ€™s at done house in LA. We got caught there day before LA was closed. Stayed 6 months n did RV back to Massachusetts. I have 2.5 ghz radio and big sail Servo in it. Tested in pool. Iโ€™m back out in LA so maybe Monday hit the Rc hobby shop called Ronโ€™s in Glendale. Paint is the spray Acrylic for plastics. Coated with clear. Hull is plastic so my CA was put on to attach deck too thick. It melted plastic. I was going to fill in but said not worth the effort it doesnโ€™t leak.

    ๐Ÿ“ Holding screws for hull gluing
    4 months ago by Hhager2 ( Able Seaman)
    I use tape n clamps to position it or pins then CA glue with instant spay dots or more holds it. Fir critical I can use epoxy with a slight sand mixture mixed in. Holds n seals forever. On hard curves I steam or wet wood and slowly glue n bend after instant spray. Works on plastic too if done sparingly or it heats plastic
