Default Jon boat build. PIC HEAVY!!

I have made a few small things out of styrene but this is my first try at a larger more detailed build. I wanted to make a little jon boat for my TF2.








Whats a trolling motor with no battery.

.
Heres the motor and the battery cleaned up and painted.



Figured i would base coat the boat with a silver so when its scratched up it looks like the aluminum is showing through.





Here it is all painted with battery and motor mounted





And with the vinyl lettering applied.

That turned outgreat. Looks just like the one I just helped my brother in law camo this fall. He's usinghis for Muskrat trapping. Nice clean work for your first bigger project from scratch.

This is a great build. I'm curious what thickness styrene you used. I may attempt to build one myself.
