So as requested, here is a little more detail on this project.
Once you've done the usual research, you know, trawling the internet for photos and getting the dimensions you are ready to make some plans.
I found these on my travels around cyberland and wondered if I could use them as a template so I printed them in the correct size for the model and overlayed them. the two matched almost perfect.
Next I needed the deck plan so I resized this image until the length and width was right.
Now the detail for both sides and front and back. I still have to do the back. The side view shape is sandwiched between each half of the waterline piece and the bow piece.
Only the basic frame is needed as the car body filler will do the rest.
The final draft of the detail is drawn on to tracing paper then transferred on to a sheet of plastic ready for cutting out and gluing on.
I'll keep you posted.
