Default Making Brass Prop Supports


My first few tries drilling Brass did not go well, so I invested in a Drill Press and new drill bits. I got 118 degree drill bits and filed off the curl. Set the Drill press to it's lowest speed, and I got nice clean holes!



I used a countersink bit to make a clean screw location. These will get evened up in length next and installed.

Default Outstanding!

Great to see someone else building this kitÖ I started it late 2020 and am still plugging away. Do you have Instagram? My whole build is on there. So far, I basically have the whole boat built, just adding details and sealing still. I have installed custom LEDs throughout and built my own kort nozzles and bracing. If you do have Instagram, my user is @rc_boat_addiction give it a look if you want and Iíd love to hear any feedback if ya got it.
Canít wait to see the rest of your build.
Cheers!

Great to see someone else building this at the same time. I like how you did your prop shaft mounts. I'm still on the fence with how I want to do mine.

Nice Insta, I've only posted a few of this build on there. I'm @birdizzo, added ya. I'm big into Vintage Losi stuff right now.
