199. The exhaust pipes assemblies coming thru the cockpit bulkhead and going thru the cockpit ceiling boards are made up with the cast chrome plated elbows and aluminum pipe with the hose coupling. They will be glued into the holes in the forward cockpit bulkhead after the pipe is slid thru the cockpit ceiling boards. Note: The hose clamps were made with thin strips of the left over aluminum cut water tape, then imprinted with the end of a small screw driver blade.

200. The large exhaust pipes, parts bag #705-2, are attached to the transom with the attachment tape but not before trimming the tape from the inside of the pipe. Once attached to the transom, the inside of the pipes are painted with flat black paint.

201. The finishing touches for any model is the addition of the deck hardware, and in the case of this classic race boat, the vinyl cut gold leaf graphics.

202. The last item to install is the motor system of your choice along with the accompanying speed controller for either of the power packages M.A.C.K. Products offer for this model. The speed control will be placed to the right side forward of the engine compartment. Note: due to the distance from the receiver location at the left side of the boat at the transom, a 18” servo extension will be necessary to run from the speed control to the receiver down thru the holes in the frames where the water line is in run.

203. Battery placement in the hull will be under the removable floor boards on both the left and right side of the keel the batteries will be held in place using Velcro to allow for movement of the batteries for balancing out of the model.

204. This completes the build of the MISS SEVERN kit as manufactured by Legend Model Boats. We have included the CAD drawings that we used to build the model ROLLS ROYCE V-12 motor for the model, as well as a set of photos of the real motor that was used in the replica MISS SEVERN, when we enter the model in competition. The model motor was built to cover the brushless motor from the M.A.C.K. power package.

The finished model will be entered in the static competition at the Toledo Weak Signals Expo. We will be taking orders for the kit “MISS SEVERN” at the M.A.C.K. Products booth, for the first run of the kit within 60 days after the end of the show. All credit card orders will be guaranteed a kit from this first run. The credit card orders will not be charged until the kit is shipped.

What can I say? Other than that I'm glad that someone with the modeling, engineering, and business skills that you have, has been able to step into the 21st century and take Mahogany Modeling somewhere that Dumas could never go...

What Pat wrote, i agre 100%... Your kits is almost like LEGO it just clicks together it is almost impossible to assemble it wrong, and still there is room for individual skill. And your selection is varied.

Thanks guys for the nice words. We try our best to produce a quality product that any one with a little effort can make with contest ready quality.

I think in the short term we will be venturing away from the mahogany runabouts and in to the realm of outboards, and cruisers for the next few boats. As Pat mentioned, “Variety is the spice of LIFE”, and I do not want to have people think of Legend Model Boats, as being the speed boat guys.

I am ever so happy with the following that Legend Model Boats has gained since we started, and we will not do anything to tarnish our reputation and trust that our customers have garnered onto us.

As always your modeling buddy,

Rich Koll (frankg)
