Gale v

Posted 11-08-2009 at 09:43 PM by chuckc (2010 Build)

Alright,, !! I confess, my wife and I took a day off and did a River Crawl, Anniversary time, and we had a bunch join in. Weather was picture perfect for this time of year 60+ plus sun. So I'll let this go for another day beyond the time limit. I know somebody will catch it. Probably Ron. But it's a ????. Catch it---= 2 "Atta-bouy's " :lalala:

1985 7-Eleven (1/10th scale) Pink sponsons

Posted 11-06-2009 at 01:09 AM by cyberhoops
Updated 11-06-2009 at 01:11 AM by cyberhoops

A bit more work and I have two sponsons built up with pink foam and sanded to shape.

I guess it is appropriate that I am using pink foam since this is a girl boat (Miss 7-Eleven), and blue foam would be the correct material for male boats like the Mr. Pringles.

Anyway, the next step is probably to sheet the bottom of the sponsons in 1/32" plywood.

I have done some test fitting of hardware and the center section nicely fits two 5500mah Hyperion...

Miss Pepsi Construction

Posted 11-05-2009 at 05:39 PM by dauminator (1/10 Scale building)

This blog thing is new to me so let's start with my Miss Pepsi for a test subject. After first doing all the "red line" corrections to the plan, I transferred the lines to the 1/32" Aircraft Plywood and cut them out.
