started working out the rear decks today, the laser bed is only 610mm long so I have to put a join in.

Hi Andycam, glad youre enjoying it.
good to hear from you Norseman, havent been posting recently due to waiting for materials, so just been molding extra sets of resin fittings and stuff for the guys, as for things in general, looks like were having another baby so its been doctors appointments every time we turn around, Ive given up trying to convert more people to model boats so im trying to breed some more instead, heres a couple of shots of the first four hulls together.

Great work, well done.

Did you cut the bridge panels by hand or....? I had great difficulty cutting them for my Orca.

Those hulls could be sold as baby baths for boatmad dads  :-))

Hi tassie48, not long now.
Thanks boatmadman, I now do 99.9% of my cutting on my laser, the best part with the bridge panels is that the clear glazing will be a press fit.
Hi norseman, no twins, already checked (not me personally , the doctor I mean) shes at 15 weeks now, we find out sex at 19weeks

Hi Mermod
I've not seen those windows before - did you cast them?
Or do you have alink to them. Interesting item.

The design is straight of the plan, I just laser cut 2 layers of 6mm clear acrylic and then after painting I have a clear insert that just drops in from the back.
