  1. OK, this is going to be an interesting build. We are setting up to have an estate sale for my Mother and Father's home. I was remind that an old boat that he was building may still be up in the attic. I remembered the boat from seeing in when I was young in the 70's and 80's. Just remember it being a speedboat of some sort. Well anyway, the estate lady did find the boat and handed it over to me and I didn't know how it was built, or where I would go from there. After asking some questions on here yesterday trying to find out what kit this was, I had it narrowed down to Miss Unlimited. I asked the Estate lady if there was a box for it, and she said no, So I figured I had to scratch build the upper section of the boat (which comes as plastic molds). But surprisingly a few hours later I received a text with these pictures asking if this is what I was looking for: I was ecstatic to get to see this. I drove over and picked up the box. I want to finish this boat as a tribute to my dad, but I didn't have and intention of making it motorized/RC controlled, just for display. I don't know if I will change my mind later. But for now I just want to finish it and give it an interesting paint job. There isn't a whole lot of pieces left to finish, but I'm still going to make a build log for this. Working with a model that has been in the attic for 40 years will be a challenge. I already had to seal a lot of spit plywood with a thinned out wood glue mixture and some clamps. That worked out great. Also, the model appears to have a whitewash paint over it, it came with mahogany sheets for the top, but so much for making a nice varnished top. I will improvise with the paint job to get a finish I like. The main reason Im glad I found the box was for the plastic molds. The contests of the box left are this: One other funny thing:
  2. hi! I Just started a model to pass some time. I thought I’d share some photos of the build. this is a old kit from eBay I found. I started searching for kit that would match a vintage gas water cooled motor that needed a place to sit I doubt I’ll ever run it but I’d like to build it like I would. I was thrilled to see other builds on here based on this kit and have used them to help me along. I decided to share my adventure in a photo journal. I have mistakes in early pictures but have corrected them and moved on. That’s a whole different story Im on day two and I can say this kit has helped me and entertained me 10x over the investment cost. Bang for the buck here is off the chart. Kid at heart. Only missing one here to share it with first hand. I Highly recommend some ship building in these times this is a vintage kit from the ‘70’s but still on Dumas Boats Website.
