Build Log
Marie Felling from caldercraft

Hi everybody! Im going to attemp to post a build log here, Just be paitent for me to get to the computor to post.

This is a Caldercraft Marie Felling That im building for a client. I have never built a Caldercraft kit before and I have to tell you the instructions
" SUCK " I thought Billings was bad but this is crazy.
They are worded like reading a book and you have NO pictures to refer off of but the one that is on the box lid. Just one veiw.
But the quality of the white metal and the fiberglass is very good. I cant belive how good the white metel is and how MUCH of it there is!

What do you mean "attempt"?
You did a great job on the Titanic build up.
We just needed a few pics on the water to finish that one up. (please?...)

Ok Umi your right!

I will but I still have to make up a lead keel to hang on the underside remember it was top heavy with all the weight in place. But I came up with a fix on that but just been spending my time on other projects.

I want to make up a torpedo shape lead keel to hang on the bottom that will be able to swing side to side yet be removable.

You don't need no stinkin' instructions!

I wanna see you polish all that white metal.

Oh, and is that the foreman in the blue plaid jumper suit?
