Custom RC plane or Battle Ship?
« on: May 30, 2008, 10:19:51 PM »
Nope. How about a RC Nitor powered swamp boat? ;D

I'm working on one now. As if I need another project. Sheeesh.

I do have pics of the one I started at Air Boat I started it this winter and haven't touched it since. At about spring time HMEM came into my life and I had to start a steam engine. :P

I think I need to set some priorities in order to finish up these half done projects or I'll never finish any of them. >:(

Dunno how I missed this one.

Are you going to fiberglass the hull or seal it?

It's not on the public portion of the web site.

I am sealing it with fiberglass resin, but need to cover it with fiberglass also. Looks like it could be a winter project to get her finished up, maybe. :P

I've been thinking of building a steam powered air boat. Only thinking about it mind you. ::)

I meant missed this post :)

I want to do a boat. And a sub.... :o

Was thinking about forming a hull plug out of wood (or foam) and doing a CF hull... then power that by steam!
