Colin Archer no.414 By Sundt - Billing Boats - Radio - PS hull


Recommended Posts

Hi Bob, many thanks for the info'. I thought I answered you two nights ago (2330 here in Norway) but I see this morning  that it was not sent. I have sent you a PM instead so I don't clogg up Sundt's own building thread with my painting problems.

Regards George

Hi Andreas,  on some 1:1  RS1 photos the hull finish looks very matte. I wondered if your hull was painted/sprayed gloss? or have you just shined it up with car polish?! A nice shine looks good on a model -even if it's not as the original.  I look forward to seeing more of your building photos when you get back to "work".

Regards, George

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

Hi George,
I think that white gloss is right. Gloss makes sense to me since it is easier to maintain and keep clean than matt or silk like texrures. I serched the web for photos of "the real thing" and found some of RS1 and some vessels of similar types, see below.

 

My model.

Andreas, I think Carsten is selling gloss paint on your thread😬. But it's for a good cause so I suppose it's OK.   Yes, a gloss finish will be easier to keep clean and nobody will say that it's not the right 'look'. Carstens hull looks good I think.   Andreas' RS1  has 'gloss-look' right out of the box! 

I have started a scratch build log in this forum so I can show my present scratch build project. Also because I have exchanged info with BobG about airbrushing. I will also show some photos of my RS1 progress when I get it up from the cellar storage.  I will not even try to compete with Andreas' excellent photo-build-blog of the RS1 which will soon be in 'full swing' again.  Hope we will see 'formation sailing' of two RS1 next spring?

Kind regards to you both,

George

Hi again Carsten and Andreas, I hope I wasn't misunderstood. My comment about 'selling paint' was supposed to be humorous. Carsten was kindly showing the paint he used to get a good gloss finish. I was planning on asking him what he used. Bengalack gives a very hard, gloss finish and it flows out very well.

Kind regards,

George

I've been following this thread with interest because I have recently bought an old,  partly built 414 kit . I have found that the BB kit has some issues of which the wrongly shaped catheads, parts 38 (414) or 57  (728 ) is one.

 

Caner: The instructions of the latest 728 kit can be found here :

Some time ago an ABS hull was offered for sale on ebay by a German. I would advise you to check ebay regularly.

 

Regards,

 

Arjan

Hi George, the rear end of the BB catheads should be rounded off on the top side only. The straight front end of the BB parts should be rounded off and a roller should be added.

 

The parts from the instructions :

This is what they should look like :

I hope I've made myself clear.
