    πŸ“ Dental paste
    5 days ago by NigelTailyour ( Leading Seaman)
    Flag
    While fixing my dentures in place I was puzzled by the paste as it has some wondrous properties.

    Flesh coloured
    Sticky when wet
    Seems not to dissolve
    Appears not to harden quickly
    Sticks to a wet surface.
    Cheap and plentiful
    Tasteless and odourless

    Unfortunately I can’t think of a reason to use it in building my model boat.

    It’s a solution looking for a problem.

    Perhaps it might be a Festive Competition for the best idea.
    I’ll donate a mince pie to the winner.

    Slipper pond, non tidal used by RC sailing groups. Also kids in dinghies. Knee deep and waist deep. RC sailing club use waders and a small rowing boat to rescue.
    Launch by Slipper Sailing Club from the causeway or on other side in car park or from the road.

    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

    πŸ“ Levi Corsair 28 powerboat

    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
    1 year ago by NigelTailyour ( Leading 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.
