I'd not seen this version of the K7 in Lego before but I thought you'd appreciate the attention to detail with the markings etc - I started looking at ways to do it last night and it's going to be a challenge which is why the models so far all have a degree of compromise. https://www.flickr.com/photos/fifthpixe ... 2680685254

Hello All, and Ian especially, sorry I've been off the website for a while but I've not been to well again,think you will have realised that Ian, anyway most of you will know my build of K7 rebuild well by photos you'll see the boat about finished,,,,, but guess what I've stripped the boat back to the the hull ,why? I had a long hard think about it while I had the time off from the build I decided I wanted to build the 1964 record boat it's a personal thought to me don't want to really go into it, well I'll post pics again and this to Bill I'm building a turning rig like yours it was to much last time for me to lift boat back and forward I've not much room and I'm not strong enough now,to all the team the boat your rebuilding is fantastic and some new great model boats to on the forum, I'm pleased to be back on the forum again :)
Al.

Hi al glad your back hope you're better. Carnt wait to see your k7 on the water. I took mine over to Coniston last year for the 50th anniversary i was going to run it but when all the press and tv pointed their cameras at it i bottled it!! I wish id ran it now as it would have been on the news

Hi Ian yes a lot better thank you, I have all the bits ready just two new sponsons and new tail to build this time though I'm making a jig to turn hull to put detail on its a little like they used on the real boat it will help me a lot. Last time It took me a lot longer turning it back and forth , the jig will let me get on a little faster :) so I'll be posting some build photos on here soon as I get jig done

Hello all some more photos of the unbuild of my K7 , 67 build to the K7 64 , I've shown bits and pieces of the materials I'm using to build jig to make things easier for me no more lifting it about you will see the dumped sponsons I'm taking the aluminium wedges of though. Also the aluminium supports for sponsons will be stronger once shaped I may have to load 1 or 2 pics at a time looked a wreck now , but I'm sticking by what I've done .
