Hi Al,
I do like a good looking rear end,'what
A shame you're taking a saw to it, have you not considered making a new canopy for the 64 version & keeping this?
I've already made a plug for the canopy, just waiting for the plastic to arrive then I'll have a go at vacuum forming, what's the old saying... How hard can it be lol......

Woops upside down nose has changed and most of the boat my turbine back on test rig waiting new jet pipe before testing as the one in place now has to be all ripped out and that's when the water break comes out but the working plunger in the break will now be made into a lock for engine cover

Hehe, your Mr Woppit looks awesome, did you make it yourself, or where can I buy one?
It does look sad ripping it to bits but glass half full, I'm sure it will look amazing when done, you just don't see 64 versions.
I've been busy with the 12th scale K7, I'm well on with planking the engine cover & I've fitted the rudder & prop from the donor boat, shame it wouldn't go on the correct side, but it will do.
Cheers

Not seen this Cobb footage before, I hope this link works as there is some excellent detail for model builders including a clear closeup of the cockpit
