Another Seaport conversion
« on: July 23, 2018, 17:01:58 »
Alrighty then,

Haven't posted here in a while. Thought I'd show you my Seaport conversion. Hull is stock, changed the stock motor to a 6V from in the parts box. I removed the kort nozzle, and added a standard rudder. After gutting everything else, I added a polycarbonate sub deck, then planked over that with scale basswood planks. The bulwarks were then attached (glued, not screwed back on). I reused the aft winch, but added some scale like heavy rope. I added the pilothouse that a friend had made. All of the other fittings/details came from the parts box. Rattle can paints were used throughout. Model runs very well. As usual all comments/threats/critisitum is welcome.

Looks good. Was the hull the only bit of the Seaport that you used?

Sea Monkey,

Thanks. Yep, the hull/bulwarks/aft winch were the only original parts I used. Everything else came from the parts box. I used the original deck as a template for the polycarbonate sub deck.

That's all right, Mr Ryan. My Morse is so rusty, I could be sending him dimensions on Playmate of the Month.
