I was debating on color eather the green or tan. Since I had some of my army green left and had to use it and my other 2 are the army I decided to go with it . All most went with the Tan but decided the other way. I had the green any way and it would cost me to go out and get a can of the tan. THEN I would have use it once that would have been it . So I was better off to the green to match everthing elest. Thanks glad you like it . I still have some detale I plan on adding. THE Como is from my head and a few ideas I saw on the other boards. When It comes to como It usely comes from ideas and what I think may look right.
OK thanks DON

went back to it

Well I decided to finish it off the way I had been thinking about but was not ready to go back untill last night . So I had the room and I wanted to jump back in and do the inside. OK this is something I had never done befor . So I just went for it . So she is now a project in building again.

I needed do this for I have a boat that I told a buddy of mind i would do for him as a static not RC. a 22 ft firber foam cruser so this is giving me some ideas on how to set his up later . So I will be doing one more boat that I neve realy had plans of getting back into building . I guess I cant stay dry dock to long ;-) OK enjoy. I will finish this project befor I jump into this boat. Enjoy DON

I do have one queston the floor was that dimein plate or silver painted floor for the picture I was working from showed a wooden floot with slates that is why I did mind that way. I have all ready clean it up the areas that needed filling and planing on painting it .
NOW I am not sure on witch way to go with dealing with the floor in the center ? i will have to think about it now?

BY the way GG do you know what a fiber foam Baha 22 ft crusier is ? Now that will be my next project in 135 th scale . I will be useing the lindburg PT 109 hull and doing some changing to it alone.
I have done things like in the pass so it dose not bother me at all..
Seems like when I think am finely done and away from my dry dock for some reason I end up going back;-) sooner or later for a reason.?

OK this is why I am trying to learn how to the insidesof the tank for I will have to add the insides to this Boat and the real one is 22 ft. with inboard . Allways wanted to do something like this but never had a real good reason to so. NOW I have one.
BUT it is for a good buddy of ours and our Computer repair person and HE has been more then fair to us . HE has the real one with a . tarp over it in his side yard.

I will send you pictrures of it when I start on it soon. so what I learn from doing the tank will help me with this next project.. I guess I cant get away from boats and ships
O well ;-)) I dont mind that has allways been my real love in the RC world . I am liking the tanks just as good they are diffenent and intresting and I am learning something new all of the time. and having fun and that is what hobbys are for. IF you dont like what your doing that is the time to get out at least that is how I feel any way.

OK sorry for going off subject but I think it will be ok with the person that
started this sight;-)) DON
