Default Official MINI CAT build up thread.

Watch it come to life before your very eyes, the same molds that our very own BROWNIE used to make the Cougar Cubs over 20 years ago will be the birthplace of the METAL BROS. Pocket Rocket 10, The molds have been in prep for a week now and the finishing touches happen tonight, I may even get mat cut tonight which will speed up things in the AM when lay up commences. Over the next 3 weeks you will see this lil guy go from raw resin to full form, I will do my best to do daily updates and post as many pics as possible.
Let the fun begin.
Metal

You may see this as a childs toy, I see it as a boat building necessity

Flat pieces are the key

And if I can squeeze in a break I can have a little fun if I choose

We use clay to fill in any nicks in the hull that were inflicted while pulling a part, this clay comes in flat pieces and seems a little easier to work with. 1 bucket will last quite awhile.
