Kit has been posted this morning from CMB and I must recommend paying £10 for the CMB membership. The 5% discount on just the kit alone more than paid for membership.


FYI all fittings come with the kit despite the fittings also being marketed as a separate pack too.

The etched brass set is extra and will be on a future order.

This is the old etched brass which was two sheets and part F-09 is no longer included for some reason. I think it was meant to be part of the steering wheel.

This is the current all in one sheet in the kit today

Unfortunately due to poor packing at the factory my screen frame has scratches both sides. CMB will get a replacement.

There are 5 sheets of plans and a very good assembly manual
The start

The planking and all the ply is excellent quality. The planking in particular would shame Billings.

Progress using both slow and fast CA for the framework.

Firstly I've ordered the Raboesch sealed waterproof shafts with bearings that can handle 15,000 rpm max and require no lubrication. I ordered 290mm long 4mm as these can be shortened as required.
Also ordered Raboesch 35mm type C 3 blade propellers L & R handed

So after a full morning of chores I got started this afternoon. All was going well until I came to fit the floor panels then I realised I had assembled frame four and its four additional pieces the wrong way around. NOTE that frame is the only one that is not symmetrical and it caught me out.
I managed to get it out with about 30minutes of effort without breaking it. As the four sub pieces could not be removed without destruction I opted to remodel the frame which was a good fix.
Then onwards with no further problems.
I bought a supply of Aliphatic resin and other bits from Leeds model shop this morning. So like ukmike I use CA and aliphatic as I deem appropriate.
See here the forward floor is the wrong way around.

More progress after the fix
Now starting to remove material to reduce weight as I progress. I think by tomorrow eve it should be ready to start planking the lower hull.

I must post now and have a break or there'll be too much in one post later.
Firstly another part with the potential to get it wrong.
These are made up of four parts, two are thin and too are thick (subtle difference) You must use one of each for both!

Initially it can be perplexing how to assemble this jigsaw. First I dry fitted all parts and marked their outlines on the transom to help when gluing.
Amati Riva Aquarama build 32EE3DAD-2B79-4676-8936-783D2C4F0373-XL

I then glued these parts as shown being careful that the mating surfaces are all in contact and square

Then glued them in place

Aliphatic resin only takes about 10 mins to grab

I then checked the cross member and clamped while the other parts were secure

Removed and glue applied  for final fit. The bottom pieces need the keel filing to get the required fit.

So round two today. Great instructions so nothing untoward and all parts fit well. If it doesn't fit its either wrong way around or the wrong part Amati Riva Aquarama build Grin

Tomorrow will be more holes sanding and finishing resin all over (first coat of diluted)

The planks are the best quality I've experienced. I think the issue Mike had 8 yrs ago of different thicknesses has been resolved.
