Hello,
This is going to be a build log on my Lindberg Cape Gull footie.
I will be posting pictures during the build and keeping small notes on each individual image.
Here is what I have so far:

The footie is done! :D Dad finished putting the railings, mast, lights, and brass radar whip tripods together. Here are a few pictures of how it looks, but you can still see it at the pond next week!

Looks like a nice clean build. Good job. It sounds like you are also building a Soling. These are great sailing boats. Great to see new interest in the hobby. It is way more exciting than static modeling which has its own rewards. But nothing beats putting your boat on the water and getting it to work.

Thanks Mike, yes I am building a Soling 1M, and I will put some pictures on here tomorrow night of how it is going.
My Dad is the one who built 98% of the coastie, so all the credit goes to him. The Cape Gull is fully RC on a 2.4GHZ system.
Hope to see you Sunday!

Nick
