Elco 80 ft PT 117
View images (6):
Used :Revell's PT 109 kit (old tool), WEM's pe fret, WEM's 50 cal guns + colour coats, various plastic sheet, rods and tubes.
Inspired by the Book about this 50 year old kit by T. Garth Connely and a Model built by George Woijicki .
It was the first time working with p. e. parts for me.
Took me quite a while to bring to completion.
Unfortunately, for some unknown reason the enamel colour caused some overspray, which led to a somewhat 'frosted 'looking surface, if the camera comes too close. I´m not used to this kind of paint any more.
This album is attached to project U.S. Navy Torpedo Boat PT 117.

Like it but some more pictures of the whole boat would be nice, some from above and the front perhaps

Sieht doch gar nicht mal schlecht aus, nicht nur der Flakstand. Um diesen Frost Effekt zu vermeiden, nimm keinen 100%tigen Matt Lack, ein zwei Tropfen seidenmatt oder glänzend reichen schon aus, hab da schon meine Erfahrungen hinter mir.
Dein Lackauftrag auf neueren Modellen ist jedenfalls hervorragend !

Danke Dir fürs Kompliment ! Ja, das hat mich schon ziemlich geärgert damals, man lernt eben nicht aus.
Der Tip mit der Mischung ist jedenfalls gespeichert .

Ist mir auch schon passiert, der Frost effekt geht bei einer neuen Lackschicht meistens weg.
Das Modell sieht trotz allerdem echt gut aus ! Ist halt die salzheitige Luft

So what did you do to get the deck smooth (remove the planking detail) ? I have the 109 kit and it looks like a daunting task to remove the planking detail.

Hi Robbie, I struggled withe the decision for a while but then I sanded the deck completely. It is quite an amount of work, but far less annoying than I expected.
