Good luck Coastie 2thumbsup

I look forward to seeing your build thread to see how you tackle Eileen, we all have a slightly different take on the same theme.

Has anyone else had a go at this boat, I have just found the drawings in my files and fancied having a go at it. It seems a funny  way of building a plank on frame model, they are usually built upside down.

Thanks for the photo coastie, That is a very very nice model and you should be proud of it. I like the colours you have chosen and the nice sheen you have on the deck planking. What did you use to seal the deck planking?. I have used sanding sealer in the past but it has crazed after a few years so I am looking for something else for this model.

Thanks again, may be asking for more photo's well into next year.

Regards Alan

HI All

A month ago I pickup an original Eileen kit with plans.

The hull was basically done with only six more planks to add.

I added a new 4mm prop drive line with a 60mm brass 3 blade prop.
The rudder was missing, so I made a new one, but follow the curve of the hull at the top.
Motor a rock crawler 540 80 Turn brush with a 60 Amp ESC on a 2S 6000mah Lipo battery.

The stern bulwarks were missing, so I made new ones and the top railing is missing.

The hatch and wheelhouse are basically together.

Fibreglass the inside with 2 ounce matting and double resin coated the outside.

The plywood deck and bulwarks are installed.

I have cutout the deck between the hatch and wheelhouse to made this a removal section which gives me better access to the inside.

Still a lot more work to go !!!
