Hello all: gonna start my 1st build log so bear with me. Bought this kit back in 1990's when I first wanted to get into building models. (Hint not a good 1st model). So after switching to r/c airplane modeling for 20+ years I dug this out the other day and thought it's about time to finish this up. I found a build log on this model by Jarero and another couple of pics from Robhow on his build so I figured I could get some help and encouragement if I started one also. This is what I have so far; As you can see I put enough work into this to finish it up but I see that my white has yellowed,I didn't stain or varnish the deck,couple parts aren't lining up to good? and my biggest problem and the reason I stopped building is gluing the plastic covers for the paddle wheel, nothing seems to stick. I'm thinking of using balsa instead unless someone has a better idea. Also would like ideas on when and how to finish the deck, and best method of sealing/priming and painting of all these wooden and metal parts. Thanks and happy building Larry.
