              That is as close to perfection as you can get for a Submarine build! Thank you so much for your work in making this stern kit to become a reality David!!

              • Tonight I finish all the tooling and jigs required to produce the 1/72 SKIPJACK fitting kit. They will be in Bob's hands by the end of the week. They should be commercially available shortly. The next project is working up a similar package for Bob so he can re-introduce the 1/144 SEAWOLF fittings kit.

                            • David,
                              Thank you for posting, I learn from you all the time!
                              Some questions, one a couple of posts ago, there is a liquid (water?) on the prop, is that used to keep it from sticking to your brush or to clean the part?
                              on the last post, you changed resin? Different company?
                              If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                                During the stippling of the masking clay up tight around the master I use water to keep the oil bearing clay from sticking to the bristles of the brush.

                                About fifteen years ago I switched from BJB-810 polyurethane casting resin to Alumilite RS-3 polyurethane casting resin. Alumilite recently changed the color of their labels, maybe that's what you keyed on, Tom.
