BUILD SOMETHING!

Now I see the photos...Nice Dave...... I love that we have 3 separate builds going on in 1 thread! Here are the painted pics. Got all of the superglue welds on. I do this after final primer and sand so the detail isn't lost. Never had an issue with falling off. Not even my subs. Just got my 35 amp reversible ESC and it works great. I get a nice delay and about 1/4 throttle in reverse......It also has water cooling so I put a pickup and exit venturi on the bottom. Should be enough to keep water flowing...I also just added some smoked plex (so I don't need to build an interior ) and some bollards. Took a bit of liberty here as I didn't like the side bollards the real boat has. I am also toying with the idea of making this a Sheriff boat. Not sure yet..Non-skid on the bow is next and a sea trial over the weekend...
