Here I am studying the plans and liberating bits of ply wood from the laser cut sheets, have stuck the keel bits in place, next bit as soon as I get a better craft knife, the one I bought broke up after about an hours use. Guess I will find the best place to get tools from eventually.

The kit is from the Vintage Model Boat Company.

Photos are just great.  Nice to see the contents of this new version of the Lesro kit.  I have heard a couple of good reports about some of their other offerings so be good to see how this build turns out.

Hi Paul,

You can't beat a Stanly knife.  Loads stronger than craft knives and you can
retract the blade when not in use.

I use mine for everything. Wonderful tool.  Very Happy 

Cheers

Thanks for that Ken, I have a couple of "Stanley" knives about I'll give it a go New begginings, Fast Patrol Launch Thumbsup

I made my first mistake, but to be fair the instructions didn't tell me that the Keel rebates were double where the prop goes through, what it did say was study the plan and familiarise yourself with the parts. It means a bit more work in making the prop hole in the keel, I think lesson learnt, so now have cut out all parts and worked out where they go.New begginings, Fast Patrol Launch Thumbsup

New begginings, Fast Patrol Launch Welding20small1 Now I have a thought, I do a lot of work in steel, so, the thought is why not make a steel hulled boat, any one have reasons why or why not or is there a build thread on the subject.New begginings, Fast Patrol Launch Welding20small1

I have now found a discrepancy in the plans so I don't now think it was entirely my fault.

On the plan it misses out one pair of keel doublers and a numbering mistake of these also exists, here are some photy's of the plan and offending bits.
Note the number of keel doublers on the keel and the plan.
New begginings, Fast Patrol Launch SAM_0410_zpsd33921c2

Next picture of the plan shows the discrepancy the in numbering of K2 & K3
New begginings, Fast Patrol Launch SAM_0421_zpsded3c87e

Next picture doesn't even show smaller K3 bit at all in the sketch.
Compare my part built keel with this photy of the plan.

Here is a photy of an aluminium hull that inspired me to go with this thought of a steel hull

When I take it further I will start a separate "Build Blog" Smile

More on this boat can be found at http://www.metalmeet.com/forum/index.php you do have to join to view though, but if you have an interest in metal bashing it is a good place to learn, I made this rose from plans found on the site.

New begginings, Fast Patrol Launch SAM_1590

Not the best shot but I probably can find a better shot if anyone is interested, the ladies love these copper roses (made from an old copper hot water tank and a length of copper brake pipe.

A little more progress New begginings, Fast Patrol Launch Tipmehat

A little more modifying to make things stronger and an easier fit.
New begginings, Fast Patrol Launch SAM_0429_zps1fd63cd3

Had to shorten the keel slightly to make the transom a nice snug fit.

I found the elastic band trick quite useful.

Hi Paul interesting build. starting to take shape.  I have never built from a kit always straight from plan but it's good to see the differences and the way you go about things, I liked the trick with the rubber bands. I use a lot of magnets on a steel bench for a lot of my work, they help to keep things square and straight.  Keep the photos coming.

Wiring is now complete, one side is fitted, once the second side is on them I will fit all the electrical bits back in and test it out.

I don't like things to be untidy, hence the little trays for all the components, I don't know if this is the normal thing that folks do but it is satisfying for me and pleasant to look at 2thumbsup

More photy's soon.

Hi Paul
          Great build, and pics. She coming along great guns, a much  maligned thing is the elastic band, if l get short of clamps two or three bands does the job. The best of luck with the build.

Thanks RR, nice to know folk are reading my efforts on the interweb Very Happy

Decks are now on, just have front cabin to sort out, roof, handrails and a rub down, a few bits of filler here and there and then the electrics back in and paint. On the paint subject, I didn't want to use the colours suggested as I wish it not to look like a police launch and more of a private river boat. I have a rattle can of green, so what do you folk out there think I should use as a colour scheme ? your thoughts please.

The latest photy's Very Happy

For a private launch white is the obvious colour, with green flashes if you want to use your can of green.

Ok thanks for that, white and sides of the hull green, how about roof sections green also and I thought possibly teak stain for the decks, your thoughts please.

When all's said and done it can always be painted a different colour scheme later, I would think it hard to have too much paint on a boat Very Happy

Hi Paul,
         Green, White Green, sounds good to me. lf at a later date you change your mind, a light rub down,
 and spray, sometimes I have a rethink, or may be two. Question Question Question Question

A little more done, slow progress as I had to go south to see Mum and all the family on a very sad occasion, but back at it now.

Perhaps a little to much filler here, but not used to putting on fiddly little bits of it, suppose I will get better as time goes on.

New begginings, Fast Patrol Launch SAM_1641_zpsffae751d

Also put a splash guard, not sure if that is what to call it, to stop water going into the hull under the removable cabin.
New begginings, Fast Patrol Launch SAM_1640_zps4f76b9bf

A little over the top with the glue but I needed to make sure it was secured properly.

I have been messing about with a bit of colour today, I was only going to paint the underside red but got carried away and whole hull got it, I think I like it, the roof of the back cabin got some green to. I think I am going to do the rest in white apart from green on the front cabin roof.

What do folk think, now be honest, I can take it Very Happy

A bit more paint today, second coat of red on the hull, second coat of green on the rear cabin roof and rear deck, first coat of white on the front cabin and then that leaves the white to finish 2thumbsup

I think the Boston Model Boat Club meet on a Wednesday, I may have it all together for a trial run, I will have to contact them and see what they say...........

I have cut the glass/plastic for the windows today. I have a whole lot left over, only used about a tenth of it Very Happy

A bit of filling before the rest of the white gets applied.

I am not sure what to do with the rearward opening of the front cabin, I presume we need a bit of airflow for the motor so it doesn't get hot but I wonder if it might cause a water problem if left open. I have contemplated putting a floor in the cabin or glass/plastic in the opening. what do you all think ?

Hi Paul
          You could try a drop, or folding canopy, from helm to rear cabin. Question Question

Its rather strange with the big gap there. I don't think you will need any ventilation for the motor. I use those motors in larger hulls and they don't really get warm without any special ventilation.

Hi David,

A canopy sounds a good idea, might try that.

By a drop I presume you mean an angled roof section, is that correct.
