    Thanks for the advice. I’m thinking that a Fairey kit is a great start too.

    I was wondering if I could start with a Fairey kit and taper off the rear. The Levi Corsair slopes down at the back to a taper, just like my hair did when I was a rocker and Bo-Diddly was king

    martin555 yes that is the boat. I spoke with the owner and the original builder Mr. Levi built this one for his son in 1979 and my contact bought it from him. So it has a direct line to the builder. If you want a new one, they make them to order for about €150,000

    I am lucky enough to live in a marina and today an elegant cruiser arrived. It’s a Levi Corsair 28. I would love to build a model of it. Roughly the size and lines of a Fairey Huntsman but built in Italy. Does anyone know of plans or a kit that I could use as a base? It’s very pretty!

    πŸ“ Masking Tape too strong or clumsy - simple solution
    11 months ago by NigelTailyour ( Able Seaman)
    Flag
    I needed to find a way to reduce the stickyness of masking tape because it was pulling the paint away or the adhesive was causing some texture. I had already tried the internet for the usual ways.
    So I made up a paste of flour and water. Just an eggcup of paste, like single cream.
    They I brushed this onto the model. Using old newspaper strips I created my own masking tape and put it onto the wet paste.
    If I need masking on a detail such as a dashboard switch (very tiny) I simply pained some paste over it.
    Then I sprayed paint or lacquer.
    The following morning I popped my model in the bath with water and left it floating. 10 minutes later the newspaper had fallen off, paste had dissolved and the model was gleaming.
