Hi all, I couldn't decide where to place my query as the margins for the subject are so wide. The answers are so vast, it almost becomes complex. I'm building the Smit Rotterdam by Billing Boats 1:75 scale. I am about to start sanding. I have applied non-polyester resin and 3/4 oz fibreglass cloth to the inside of the hull. Solid as a church! Looks great. Most builders share either home made ideas or suggest fillers by brand name. This serves well if you're near the same county, province, state or country. I want to fibreglass the outside of my hull after I have it all filled and sanded smooth. I'd like to know what type of filler is compatible with the type of resin / fibreglass I am using? Much appreciated mates.😊
Hey all, I was about to plank this side in. The other side is completely done. I won't be ordering my bow thruster until the end of this month. If I complete the planking here, the only access to the cuddy (inner nose of the bow) will be through the top. The top would be open as I only have the decks pinned down. My intention is to prep and cut 20mm holes but order a 30mm thruster. Can all this be done if I close this planking off? I've also attached a photo. Regardless of the planking stuff, which of the 3 compartments does the thruster typically get installed? (i have a build thread labelled as Smit Rotterdam)
