Default IOM Scratch Build Pics

Hi all,

any IOM scratch builders out there? Here are some pics of my second IOM build. It's soooo much easier the second time as you make all the mistakes first time.

Larry

Happy New Year

Hi Yachty Nut,

The Emo have you looked at Chris's thread on RCGroups. His Emo build. I looked at the Emo and have decided on the Maximuss Mk2 as my next build. The boat, which I have now seen in real life, behaves very well in all conditions. The plans look good and are below. And here is a link to some build pics....

Hi all,

after nearly 3 weeks I finally finished the build . Here are some pics. Please remember this is all home-made. No fancy vacuum moulds. The deck finish is a bit rough but the hull is perfect. And that's what touches the water . The bulb is also hand cast... bit of polyester filler and smooth, poured on coat of epoxy resin with Microlight Filler.

This is a Noux2 IOM. Now I have 2. Next will be a mold for the Maximuss MkII.

Larry.

G'day Andrew,

hull deck kits for sale. I have a USOM 'Mistral' hull mold and Noux2 hull and deck molds. Do you want to buy the molds?

Hi Larry,
I was just looking at a Noux2 hull and deck just to play with as IOM,s just really don't do it for me, but if I could get my hands on a hull and deck I would give it a bash. Just out of interest what were you looking at for the Noux mold ??.

cheers Andrew

Hi all

just to make life confusing here are some photos I took yesterday of my first Noux2 IOM. This boat is 2 months old and I am still tuning her.
