  1. I've always wanted to try my hand at a Dumas kit. I've seen projects in the past, and I liked what I saw Mog's PT boat project definitely put me over the edge... I had a coincidence of sorts occur. I was at Hobby Town one day........late last year or early this year { I can't recall which}, when I first came in contact with this kit. it was in a long brown cardboard box and it looked quite old.......I know that Hobby Town {at least the one in my area} had a policy that they would take complete kits in trade for other kits {mostly R/C stuff}. since $159.00 seemed a bit steep, and I didn't want to get killed by the Admiral, I passed on it and settled on a couple of plastic kits. Telling the admiral about it, I was surprised to hear that she wouldn't have killed me if I bought it. none the less......I didn't go back to get it. a few months passed.......I did little more than talk about it...I think it was the size of the model that intrigued me the most. come June of this year, my son came over, and out of the blue, asked me if I still wanted the PT boat. bewildered as to why he would ask, I looked at the admiral.......she just shrugged her shoulders, "if you want it, go get it.......early birthday present." she added to get any paints that I wanted as well........they used to be the best place to get paints and wood, but since they moved, they've gone more towards R/C than the model kits. so.......off we went! looking on the shelf, I didn't see the long brown cardboard box......there was a long white cardboard box with a huge picture label on it. I was impressed to see a production date on it.......5/2/2018. the other kit had a note on it about the hardware......I was going to ask about that, but this new kit, the question disappeared. it does resurface though......something I didn't pay any heed to or take into account. I didn't even have to stoop to pick it up.......Kevin snatched it up....."is this it?" we browsed a bit before heading to check out. getting it home, I did the ceremonial contents check....... things are jumbled in the box.......I used the other camera to take the initial pictures and they came out blurry. when I got this new camera, I retook these pictures.....they are not the complete bunch I took, but they give you an idea about the kit. a few weeks did pass before I started to pop out the parts.....mainly to do a dry fit, look'in on Mog's build and getting curious. we did PM each other for a short time to share ideas. the dry fit was comical at the start.......I had the stringers mixed up, making it look rather odd this is the other camera.......these are the better blurry pictures that I could use this is the doubling of the #7 bulkhead and the K1 keel { the main part of the keel} note that the stringer doesn't mate with the bow stem....that was my first clue. these instruction sheets are quite large and I had to use the dining table to view them. one thing that would have benefited this model, would be that the parts were laser cut, instead of die cut. the big problem with die cutting, is that the die blades become dull after a few production runs. this has the consequence of a lot of chipping and splitting, resulting in some really rough edges. from what I can gather, this is a Spruce plywood. as much as I tried to finish cut the parts, these abnormalities still occurred.....good that all this will be on the inside I didn't really get into building the hull, until October........that's when the fun began
