After watching the OPC and 10th Scale a the MCX Nat's, I'm going into another build mode. What better spot is the new Blog.
So as things progress I'll show off what I'm doing..... :thumup:

    The flood chamber is not a hole, but glad you asked. The secret is to drill a 1 1/4" hole and use the canister that you get 35mm film in. only 1 1/2 " deep no leakage. After glassing over and trimming I'll put the cross bar in.

    Good question though..... Thanks for watching the build

    What keeps the water from filling the hull through the holes?

    Gale iv

    Gale IV

    After comparing dimension's The Gale IV is now going to be the GALE V Version III built for the 1958 Season after the Gale V Version II was scrapped in 1957. This hull ran the circuit from 1958 thru 1964.

    Reason: hull length; Gale IV was 29 ft and the Gale V v-III was 30.6"

    I intend to run this boat with no engine cowling as she did in most races in Detroit
