Hope you don't go too far. It reminds my of boats that have not been in drydock for repairs for a long time.


Not to much rust will be seen ,i just spray the whole boat so when i start chipping i know i have a rust color beneath it.

I take it you are familiar with the hairspray and salt chipping technique ?

Devastated we will never see the build finished but equally can't wait to see what happens with the S boats.

Plus one. Still, I can't begrudge someone accepting an offer they couldn't refuse. We are never short of good stuff coming from Maarten so it won't be long before we see more.

On the bench:
Revell 1-72 Hunter FGA.9

The person that bought it contacted me (last week) if I wanted to buy him back,
Because of sickness he could no longer work on it :(

so it is back and who knows we will start again in the future .

The circumstances might not be the best but from a purely selfish point of view I'm pleased to see this one return.
