SNG Daily 7-30-14

We did lots of shopping for materials today and a lot of work on the Skydiver. Not much more done on the Martian but tomorrow more on him.
The Skydiver has all its drains and holes. Some un-cannon but necessary drain holes on the bottom so the hull can drain water efficiently when in actual water use. Remember this is a radio controlled submarine.
I added most of the small parts to the hull although many are missing from the kit they won’t be too hard to recreate. There’s a base coat of Krylon metal brass on the hull. This will get wet sanded smooth tomorrow and then the sort of Aztec nickel and copper can be started along with the dark colors or anti glare. She’s getting there.
Thought I’d add this picture of Mary at our camera rig which is growing more all the time.

    Steve,
    Forgot to mention recently that I just met Byron (your Skydiver client) at the SC SubRegatta in Colorado. We enjoyed getting acquainted and had a fun discussion about your fine work. I told him how hefty that Skydiver really is, since I got to check ‘er when I was there — she’s a beast! We’re both excited about following your progress.

    I forgot it was going to be a submarine until you mentioned drain holes. 😉

    Wow, it’s looking great, especially in the last photo with that first coat of paint on it.
