    Re: My First Scratch build

    Is it a scaled up Polaris?

    It isn't a seawind.

    Re: My First Scratch build

    LOL Thanks for the interest guys..

    Yes it is a water Jet. And Snow And Grass. No gear needed I cant remember the total length right now.. but it will be about 7' long. I intend to install a K-100G or P-80se in the prototype and also do a 3 bladed electric version. Its not a polaris.. but simlar and MUCH better looking with smoother and sleeker lines.

    In the photo the tail looks HUGE.. thats because the engine will be mounted on it and the horizontal stabs will come off the engine.

    Ohh BTW. there might be a twin tail later on. A great idea that looks good(Thanks Colin!!) but for now I have the single tail in my head.

    These are that last photos for awhile as Real Work has become very busy and the building has slowed.

    If all goes good and this plane flys well.. I will be Kiting this model for sale. Just dont expect it anytime soon

    Re: My First Scratch build

    Thanks Rick.

    So I may have got my facts wrong.. But I read that after you apply the 6oz glass to the plug, then you should prime it and then sand. Well at $150 a gallon for 2 pak primer!! I dont think so. I decided to use a skim coat of bondo first to fill the coarse glass. This Bondo is not your regular filler that cures fast and is very hard to sand. What it is... is simply fantastic! It cures in 5min to the point of hard cheese that you can sand and does not plug the paper.. then in about 15min its fully cured and very easy to sand and again does not clog the paper. An hour later it is rock hard but still sandable. It cost half the price of regular auto body bondo at $15 a gallon, So why not?

    Ill be working on making the engine nacelle next to be mounted on the vert stab
