The Victory 51 handles amazingly well. Ive built many, many cats and this was by far my favorite.
Shadowing was done using HOK air brush paints and a Paasche Air Brush
A few more pictures of the day after clear coat, are on Central marines website under the pictures folder of the 51 Victory.
Honeslty I was not impressed with this set up and eventually the clutch failed and took out the engine. The engine is now rebuilt back to the Gizmo mod 30 and rests in a CRC 58 Fountain.
Hardware was TFL Skegged strut and Rudder. I had a Speed Master strut on it and damaged it. I can honestly say for the price I was thrilled with the quality of TFL and in fact am installing TFL hardware on my new Victory build.
