Wasn't too happy with the fore hull profile. There was this ugly bulge that would have  caused a disturbing bow wave and would have resulted in a bobbing motion. Decided to tear it apart and rebuild it. These are the results. I'm satisfied, though I know that I could have done better. Final finishing will take care of the small discrepancies.

Going slow on these builds. Hope it pays off.

Ho Hum! Here we go again. To start with, the shape of the bridge windshield / portholes are entirely incorrect and needs to be rebuilt. Lot of work remaining.  Bang Head

You need to get yourself a can of 'Bilux Polyester Putty' that is available at automotive stores. I've been using it extensively on my builds. Dries fast, can be sanded and is totally waterproof. Check videos on Youtube about 'polyester putty' and you will get to know how to apply it.

Well......if you don't want to pay for it:

1. Catch some generous soul, e.g. whose favourite nephew you are

2. Steal  ROFL

Rai sahib, there exists a 3rd. option. Strictly reserved for masochists. Scratch build the entire lot! Then again, you have to adhere to scale and also do better than what is being offered by the firangis. Grin

I have added a lot of extra details. The Searchlight actually works. The mast will feature a working navigation light. The port, starboard nav lights are also functional. The crane can be traversed manually (like the original). The main mast has a nav light and folds down like the real thing did in 1950.

Check out the stowed net once I post it.

Judge for yourself. More to follow. Learning how to knit now - guess why? Huh?

So much yet to learn and so much more yet to do.

Stay tuned.

EVERYTHING (except the ESC, Brushed Motor, Servos, Tx, Rx, wires, propeller, LED's and Battery pack Smiley) is scratch built.

In fact, the stow nets (in the first photo) were hand knitted.
