Legend Model Boats - Miss Behave
After finishing my submarine I was looking for something different. I love the warm colors of mahogany so I decided to build such a boat. After a lot of investigation in the net I felt in love with the california crackerbox and the Miss Behave (and ordered both )
It's my first wooden boat and I'm quite sure I made a lot of mistakes so far.
(eg. sanding too much resulting in bad light areas in the outer planks - now they are really black )
The engine is prepared, I bought a Revell kit of the Ford 427 engine. It's still missing the bell housing and the exhaust.
For the seats I have ordered some alcantara material which looks like leather, but is more flexible.
The chrome parts I'll try Alclad 2 chrome, as this should be the best paint for chrome effects, we'll see if it's as good as everybody says. If not, then I'll have to plate it manually.

Ken, which hardware did you install?
Is the boat drawing water at high speed? As both of you guys sealed the openings with tape.

I used the hardware that came with the kit(rudder,driveshaft,drivedog,strut,ball joint etc...)However I used a x637 Octura prop.Just shoot me a email and I will answer any questions you have.
