Hi Roland

If only the real thing would come together as quickly.... :lol:

Great to see what you're doing so make sure you post photos of the finished model. Mike

Hi Roland, that's fairly impressive but don't you have a woman over there you can kill some time with? LOL.

Hi Roland, you could be cutting out your frames in the Alps, a great inside winter job :!: and then freight them flatpack style to the Philippines ready to start your assembly :!: great little model though :) happy building

cheers

Hi Roland. I notice you've straightened up the bows so they are almost vertical, looks good. I hadn't noticed this on Jim boat until he pointed it out and I think it's a real improvement in the looks department. I also like what you are doing where the underside of the bridgedeck meets the hulls. Are you intending to make these modifications on the full size version? Mike

yes i did straighten the bows. did draw the boat in autoCAD and did the modification on the screen first.. so i could just print out all the modified frames 1:20 on the printer. as you noticed i did add chamfer panels at the bridgedeck - hullside joint.. i have read somewhere that chamfer panels are important as they add high reserve buoyancy. cats with chamfer panels need less bridge deck clearance then cats without them. and its just my feeling that its good to have them made.. i will add that to the full size version as well i think..
