Kilo update:

The flood ports along the keel are all opened up and I have begun the same process on the rectangular free-flood drain ports on the topside.

I LOVE my new electo-file. It removes vast amounts of material quickly cleanly and with a great amount of control. The one problem is it can remove too much stuff if you don't watch it closely! Say if any youze guys
think you can use it SunNFun time I can bring it

Tom,

Sweet! Gail has been putting off filing the flood holes on his Type XXI for a long time. Where'd you get this "elecro file"?
Warm regards,

Kilo refit

Postby BoomerFunker » Tue Nov 27, 2007 10:48 pm

Hi Fellas,

While I am in no way as industious as that Porteous fellow I have begun putting my Kilo in shape and getting her ready for a proper paint job. Here I have used Evercoat spot lite to even up the hull halves and minimize the parting seam. Its all straight from Mr. Merrimans video. (Which I recommend) Next will be some details tweeking and perhaps some photo etch.

Hope all your builds are going well. Post us an update.
