Chuck C; The www.lesliefield.com website has a nice cronology of the third GALE V in the boats section. As your own avitar shows, the first Gale V had "Sparky" on its straight tail. The Gale's nearly always ran with a cowling, it was the Roostertail and Smirnoff that did not. The lightning bolt on the tail we her final season. Check out www.e-rcu.org for lots of model photos and some of the real ones also.

Hi folks, I didn't want to start a new thread to ask this question.
Next season I will be attempting to run 10th scales here in Colorado. I have looked all over the internet for a boat to build. I am not good at all with detail stuff. What I need is a super simple paint scheme. The Probe was going to be my choice but my hull is to large (36" so I need a 30' boat). If anyone can think of a boat please let me know. I figure between the forums and hydronut someone can come up with one I can do.

My hull is based of the Miss Thriftway.

I suggest that you consult the NAMBA Master Roster for other boats that were based on the Thriftway or were later iterations of the same boat. You choice will need to conform to the scale rules keeping in mind the master roster gives the measurements for 1/8th scale Then go to Newton plans and look at the pictures to find a boat that fits your and the above requirements. Now after going thru all this I note you're from Pueblo, Colo. where 1/10th scale is nearly a religion. I am sure some one there can steer you right.

Sounds like you want a vintage hull that ran with a full cowling, how about the 1963 Miss US 5, U-20. Look at http://www.e-rcu.org/07roster/1963MissUS5.htm. The second Miss Burien, all white deck and cowl with red sides. It ran both with and without the engine cowl.

AHHH the Oberto, my first choice but it's a drop sponson. Then the Miss Burien, my second choice as Savair's Probe but was to short to make my hull. I can do OK with the engine, it's the actual paint that I suck at.

Ya I have Rod Sanata on the case AKA Hydronut. He is a busy man so I figured I would put in a little leg work too.

Don't make me drive out there and discuss this, LOL

If I have to make the cowl I'll do it for Concourse, but with the new motors Tom's producing, without the cowling is gonna be sweet. But, for you, I'll do the extra ton of work.... lol

Reddy was his name, Millie was her name

It's hard to keep up with Version's I, II, III Right now Lesiefields say's V-III was lime green, but photos show a orange rust, faded persimmon, with a lightening bolt. I really need to find out the truth....

Teach, all of those that have been mentioned are good and easy. Maybe also consider the 64-69 Mariner Too for a 30 foot round nosed boat. It would be easy to tape off and has three basic colors. It's hull# 6499 on the Master Hull Roster. It was the sister ship to the Miss Lapeer. Very simple, but good looking too with the open motor. Maybe I can find some photos of it so you can take a look.

The lime green was actually a Ford color on I think the 53 or 54 Ford. I think it was called Hunter Green ?? I had the color number that Rodger Newton had emailed to me a year or so ago. But was it V I II or III that is the Question, I pick Door # 1 & 2...

There are so many fantastic vintage hydro websites out there and I kick myself for not having bookmarked them. Anyway, I think it is the Shoenith brothers (Tom & Jerry) website that has some great pictures of their boats. The Alan Ameel artwork site www.hydroartprints.com/east_coast.htm has just what you are looking for. The lightning bolt was on the Roostertail which ended her career painted a hideous red/purple (wine?) color.

Guys thanks a ton again for the help. It's really tough picking a paint scheme. I hate to say it but I like the "what a pickle". Now to find more pictures.

Ron, Thanks a ton, my friend. Alot of never seen before pictures. Now even more confused by the way they painted, re-painted, re-re-painted. I think they were trying to keep one step ahead of the sheriff... LOL :wave:

Unfortunately the only color photo I know of right off is on the leslie field website. You can also by a paint scheme drawing from Newton Marine and that will have all the correct details. This was the former TEMPO VII.
