Haha that's a good idea Richie. I'm planning on putting a thin layer of fibreglass over the inside to round off the square edges.
What's the paint code for "Shabby Silver"?

Ask Mike to do it - he just loves 'shabbying'. :lol:

Hmm, shabbying, can't say as I've tried that particular experience yet
Would you guys recommend me putting it on my bucket list?
Out of interest, on this Nexus (pronounced Kerr-app) plan, forward of F15 the sides of the hull have quite a noticeable bow outwards, am I correct in ignoring this? All the pics I've looked at look to be flat & square.

Nope - the bowed shape is correct.

Bluebird K7 model, Replicast

Post by Toleman » Wed Apr 19, 2017 1:14 pm

I'm about to start a 1/43rd Replicast K7 kit and have a few colour questions (no not the blue). Were the bottom wet surfaces of the boat/sponsons bare aluminium, what colour was the seat/headrest and safety harnesses? Did the headrest still have the cutout for the oxygen pipe?
Thanks in advance Roger.
