Inter-Action Enterprises Seabiscuits Boatworks

I have been remiss in not posting anything for a little while. Darryl himself posted a build some years ago. So I think it is high time an amateur had a go.First up the obligatory box and contents shots...............

Mike,

Good to see you back building. I've always liked this kit and will be following along this adventure.

Thanks for following Tom and Curt.
The kit has a lot of parts numbered over two pages in the manual. In order to make it easy for me I carefully cut out the page so I can have it in front of me rather than searching through the manual.

First up are the main walls to which I applied a coat of A&I. I kept the walls in their carrier sheets to try and minimize warping. However I still had to keep them under weights for a few hours....

Darryl painted the prototype a fetching green. I favoured a blue and decided on French Blue. I then roughly painted this onto the walls. I did not want to be too neat as I wanted to start the weathering process early in the build.

The wall is in two parts and needs to be glued together. I used my ruler to ensure they lined up correctly. All the edges were sanded prior to this to ensure a snug fit.

The studding panel and trusses are made from laser cut RIB. I left the interior walls just stained with A&I. The parts were all glued to the inside of the wall. The trusses are differing sizes. In the instructions I found that part 4 should be positioned for part 6 and vice versa.

Enough for today as I am on the BBQ with lamb burgers and leek pork sausages. Yum.

I'll be watching, Mike.

Neat looking kit.  Does it come with the wharf?  I like your choice of colour.  I do think that shade of blue does need to be well weathered.  I'm a bit guilty of using that shade more than I should as I like it so much.

Cheers, Mark.

Yes it comes with a wharf.  I agree the blue needs to be well weathered. Thanks Mark
