  1. I am a static model builder. This model can be radio controlled, there is room inside the hull for everything you need. This kit is made so the main cabin can be removed to access the inside of the hull. Hope this helps you... hof00. If you like pics of the space inside the hull, i will post.
  2. more pics to look thru..... .
  3. Been awhile but got updated pics for my build. Alot of time been spent with sanding and painting. Enjoying this build and isn't that the reason we do this hobby. I believe the most important part of this hobby is having a comfortable chair...you will be spending alot of time in it. Thanks you checking in on my build.
  4. Boat is in the stand and began working on all the deck fixtures. Enjoyed time on the hull but glad to be done. I been thinking about the idea of lighting my model. Never done lighting but need to start planning for it now. Thanks for following... All the parts to make one storage bin....need to make 6 in total All 6 bins built and painting them begun
  5. Today all focus was getting the hull painted. Alot of time was spent taping off areas and painting all the colors. I did remember to take some pics thru the process.
  6. Finished the stand. I enjoy the way it came out.
  7. Stopped in to check out some great work. Your build logs along show good clean work. Keep it up. Downeaster from Maine
  8. Hull is finally ready for paint This kit does not supply a display stand. Before I begin the painting of the hull..it needs a place to set and not directly on the workbench. I began work on a display stand I saw somewhere on the web. I enjoy challenging myself to building all my display stands and not using standard stands. Some more sanding than either brown wash or stain to the stand.
  9. Just finished the final shaping of the hull. Applying primer coats today. Have pics showing my progress after primer has dried. Thanks
  10. Here is the latest pics of my progress. Work on the hull still in process with railing to be attached next. Also began some painting, I am following the paint colors on the box. Thanks for stopping by to look at my build log.
  11. Back at the work bench finally. Got planking finished with one coat of primer applied. Decking also completed with pencil rubbed on edge of every deck plank. Feels great to get back working on my Marina II. Thanks for looking.
  12. Would love to see some pics of your kit bashed into the northwestern. I have thought about doing the same thing. Jerryb if you start a build log , I would definitely be a follower
  13. Finally got back to the workbench. Look at the pics ....I am greatful for clamps...Starting on the planking part of the build now..Thanks for stopping by, hopefully become a follower...
  14. Today got to work on my build. I cut out the false keel, the frames and the stiffeners out of the laser cut sheets. The wood in the kit is great and the laser cuts seem to be right on so far. Began glueing the frames to the keel
  15. This is my beginning of my build log of Marina II. I like working on working boats like this one. just completed my build of the mare nostrum another working boat by artesania latina. Looking forward to this build because the scale makes this boat bigger and have more details built on it.Thanks for stopping by my build log.
