After hours and hours of sanding, the hull was sent to the neighbourhood garage for a final coat of automotive putty and finishing. They've done a rather neat job.

Pratheesh - you will see that the bulkhead chambers are approximately 4" X 3.5". Hope this helps. If needed, I can remove the centre section of a bulkhead and give you more space.

Pratheesh thanks a lot for offering to help. I have already downloaded and merged/mixed a few sound files to create the possible battle scenario detailed below. Will use a 2" speaker with an efficient amp. The entire audio contraption will not weigh more than 150 grams (as suggested by you) and will be placed amidships.

I would like a combination of a diesel engine gunning up and revving as she starts sailing out. Over that sound, the Kriegsmarine Marsch instrumental music will play, as if it were being played over a PA system to boost crew morale as they head out to do battle.

A minute and a half later, when she is in the middle of the water body, a fog horn blast is heard, followed by another. As the second blast fades, a short machine gun burst is heard and is followed by distant return fire. While all this going on, the boat has picked up speed, klaxon starts hooting and then the Flakvierling starts firing and generally all hell breaks loose!  >Cheesy

After a minute and a half, the battle sounds subside and the drone of the diesels can be heard, the boat turns to shore and approaches steadily - the sailors are singing the Kriegsmarine Marsch as they are jubilant after a successful battle.

The boat berths, engine revs lower and then finally cease.

Imagination runs wild. I wonder though if the sound effects are factually accurate. I wonder, did the Schnellboot have a Foghorn and/or Klaxon? Head Scratching

Regards.

I'm no Brainiac, I promise you. Just had a lot of fun creating this. Pratheesh is the one who has to do all the hard work to make it happen in reality.

Hello VC,
Now that I throughly re-read your method of finishing planked hulls, specially the steps where you coat it with diluted fevicol & cover it with saw dust, followed by a thorough coat of diluted quick fix, I really look silly! I should have treated the my IJN MTBD in a similar fashion, especially since it too has a planked hull.
Instead over the weekend I coated it using NC automobile putty, and them rubbed it doen with 100 & 150 grit wet emery, the result was not anywhere near to your S-boot's hull. The IJN's hull is a mess!
I now want to get rid of the N.C putty(which would indeed be a challange) and start all over again with the saw dust and fevicol.
Any suggestions?
Regards

Oh God! How will you remove the N.C. Putty now? Short of breaking it up, there is no other way. I suggest you leave it alone and carry on with the build. Or else, you may want to do a bit of cheating - give it to a auto workshop and get a good body mechanic to do a professional job. That is what I did.

Regards.

Thanks VC,
Cheat I will them! no other option left, because I am not at all happy with the putty job, it has killed all the enthusiasm. Will take it to a nearby garage.
