Hello Mike, I have a standing seam roof on my next build, so I'm very interested in how  your's turns out. Everything so far looks great.    Jeff
Thanks Jeff. I think the roofs worked out quite well. Here I have primed them with grey primer.

Tommy, Steve, Mark, Karl and Jerry thanks very much for your very kind remarks.
The kit comes with two Seabiscuit 24ft cruisers. Here is one I made earlier. I will attempt to describe how I go about making the kit with the second one........

Mike,

The wooden hull cruisers are what I remember from my youth. I'm surprised I can even remember, period. :-X

Nicely done on the kit and boat.

Continuing.........the boats are a little tricky at first.
My glue of choice is superglue for this kit because I found PVA would need an overnight to set properly.
Here are the parts of the kit with some parts painted or stained. I have covered the window parts self-adhesive foil. However you could just paint them with silver paint.

Here are a group of pctures showing the construction. There are eleven glueing points here so superglue comes in handy to keep it all together quickly.

Continuing..........I stained the deck with a Furniture Touch UP Marker. I used PVA this time as I want a precise fit so a lip forms on the underside by the overhang.

Great job with all the fiddly parts. Too small for me.

You are so right Curt. How Jan builds this kit in N scale is beyond me.
