  2. Help from the Coastal Craft aficionados needed.

    Very much so, thanks for going to the effort. The Transkit looks useful..... Look the other way Rob If I'm reading the code right it appear we have hull numbers for the 1/144 Corvette Turning into a useful little blog Stuart Kev

  4. Help from the Coastal Craft aficionados needed.

    As far as I can recall ...... twas along time ago Zzzzzzz!! Glue and tape transom to bottom, whilst movable glue port/stbd to transom and first each of bottom. Hold in place tape. let this get a good hold and slowly start working forward, gluing/taping as you go. Make sure you keep the side to the outside of the channels. I think I left the last couple of inches until it had had time to set overnight. You've then got a firm base to manipulate / adjust where the bow comes together. I kept the deck loose until well into the build. HTH Kev

    We are all guilty of assuming the manufacturers have it right From what I can see this is the case here I offer John Lamberts plan One of several pics I have These seem to show that the rail is toooo low .... Compare with early pic of hull #29 clearly part of the casting Kev

    More the merrier, Coastal Forces are going to take over This may help both now and in the future If you need help ask, someone will know the answer Looking forward to seeing your work in Progress Kev
  7. BPBC 466-MTB

    The rail is definitely moulded to low. I think Rob has got it right ..... It might be worth seeing if Coastal Craft have any smaller numbers to help the situation Kev

    As far as I'm aware there has been no re tooling since its launch in '79 Useful site for checking for tooling https://www.scalemates.com/search.php?fkSECTION[]=All&q=airfix+air+sea+rescue The only reason for perhaps going for a later boxing is the decals might be in a better condition if required.
