  1. I will start a bit later, have to visit the RS1, take some pictures of deck and equipment next week hopfully. My boat i think will be ready summer 2022. Will need some photos next summer of rig and mast. Have discovered that upper part of main mast is a bit fwd. se my pictures from the book. RS1. https://flyt.no/shop/?orderby=price-desc
  2. that's right Carsten, if it help other Colin Archer builders. I made this thread to help other builder and get som tips or answer then needed 🙂
  3. For me its okay with other posting George as long its about the Colin Archer 1:15 builds, details, adds and so on. I have newer done anything with it color 🙂 just out of the box. perhaps its will be shine or painted. that's the last work i will do on the boat. Will be lovely to start again. my problem is to many details i want to put in. Need lights in cabin and mast 🙂 Brgds Andreas
  4. I start building closer to the winter, still 17 C in the sea. And flying RC aircrafts 🙂 I will try to get som photos of the RS 1. Need to travel 2h, hopefully it will show the color of the original hul and deck. and some nice details. My boat, i think it's to glossy. Back on track later 🙂
  5. Thats right, only 1 sheet in my kit. Just bought some parts for a smaler Colin Archer, my fathers old model boat from the 50th´s need new rig and some sail. hopfully it fit, and we make it together then winter is coming 🙂
  6. Thanks for info Carsten, will check it out. KrisWood i use Penol Express and some titebond 3. Last deck plank glued. Time for sanding, Stabilit express used for wood to plastic glueing.
  7. Thanks Popeye 🙂 Only 2 small sticks left, and the deck need some sanding and stain. I'm going to make some test attempts with varnish on some small sample pieces. I think its smart to finish the deck before housing and equipments is glued on 🙂
  8. Hi George. I want to make the dinghy, hopefully. Will make som research later. I think my cousin have some drawings. have to ask him 🙂 Andreas
  9. Thanks a lot Carsten 🙂 you are close to me in Sandefjord. Lovely pictures, hopefully next summer we can sail together. Just now i am making my hobby room better for building boat and model airplanes. Need to store som model airplanes too 😉 be able to glue my boat, repair and maintenance of aircrafts after hard landings 🙂 perhaps we meet soon.
  10. Where did you buy the black scalpel? are they better, sharper? And your boat built is incredible. just, wow :-)
  11. The access hatch is finished, all planks glued on middel part of boat. I adjusted the hatch plywood to match the planks glued on, see pictures with pencil pointing on cap. I will try to add some rubber later for waterproofing? Only 8,33 planks both side of hatch left 😉
  12. Ship ahoy. I glued the center plank first, need more research on the web, watching pictures and youtube. To get a idea of the layout. No need to be 100% My boat will have around 48 deck planking, the original colin archer have 45. Two evenings work made 5 of 48. I hope the idea of permanent marker on the edge of wood planking looks good then finished 😉
  13. Startet with som pictures of RS1, discovered that drawing wasn't correct according to deck- beam ? new black lines with permanent marker where it must be acc to the designer drawing. New layout on planking. Permanent marker on edge of planking, to ilustrate caulking.
  14. My next question is making the deck planking including 0,6mm caulking1:15(8-9mm), deck layouts is important when planking. The outer dollbord is oak i think. Have to collect som information before installing reiling? I think its nice to finish the deck including outboard Dollbord, sanded and some oak/ mahagoni stain where needed. Outboard dollbord glued on, it was a bit difficult, but after some test fit, its installed 🙂 Happy easter from Norway
  15. thanks, I needed some inspiration, grabbed some sticks in the box, she will be lovely 🙂 IMG_0375.HEIC Colin Archer.HEIC
  16. Glued some more tonight. Deck installed. Tomorrow i will see the result 🙂 Before gluing, i made a clamp and installed weights 2- times. 10 min first time, 7 min second time 😉 Then applied glue, clamp in mast hole and around opening in deck. Weights , and tape on edges around the boat
  17. Stabilit express glued in a wooden stick for reinforcement. Just in case, some of the rigging rope to be attatched.
  18. i see that kit on the marked 🙂 Thanks, i will post my progress, from glue, stain, photos from a real Collin Archer or changes i do, haven't find any photo or video of the rigging. I want som details, so hopefully a got som nice pictures in the end. Just ask if more information is needed , i then changes the text bellow the pictures 🙂
  19. Some smal part glued. Tomorrow the hull need to be sanded so the ply-deck can be glued on. Still some part in the box😄
  20. I love the smell of wood. have built some modelaeroplane from stevensaero (off topic) . the bottle will be opened then the hull is close to finished, or i feel it's finished 🙂 I will follow your built if it´s in here. Thanks for following !
  21. Plastic hull, i needed Stabilit Exspress. I wanted a RC sailing scala boat from Norway 🙂 More gluing with white glue "ponal exspress"
  22. Upper side beam in ply was to stiff to bend. some hot water and soldering iron to make a curved beam work well. Video: how to bend wood and plywood. You can practice on som leftover from earlyer builds. Glue: Stabilit Exspress (PS hull to wood) IMG_9244.mov
