Here is my ahem-'modified' Falke-re-named the Big-D. She has a wooden deck, one thing I would suggest is to remove the hull lip, this has been damaged on mine and caused a crack in the top hull.
 
Looking really good Steve, good build. :-))

Just noticed that your hull doesn't have the lip, so you're okay.
 
I also made another hatch cover that sits into the frame of the forward hatch, once fitted this contains boxes of fish.
 
Just noticed that my vents are facing the wrong way  :D

eddiesolo,
 
when i built my falke, i ran a piece of timber allong the rim to prevent that edge cracking, if you cut it of it would make the hull flex more, needs stiffener, you can make it out on my pictuers reply 6 above

Hi David, I ended up having to bridge the broken rim with wood, but I did it underneath, have also added some edging strip to support it, think you're way has worked out best and given a better finish. As for making the hull flex more, possible. You could build up the inside of the hull to strengthen it. Lovely looking boat David, I must admit she is a nice design and rides well.

Just had another look and not sure if my model is the Falke or Delphin, they look the same apart from different makers and Ł40 in price difference.

Hi
Just had a look at the Delphin, and it does look identical to the Falke, but as David said the Falke is half that price, paid Ł70 for mine and it came with a motor, granted the wrong one, but definately worth the money.
Just got some fiddly bits left to do then she should be ready for her maiden voyage :}

Hi guys
Tried something I'm not too sure of, tried dirtying the deck to give it that "lived in" feeling. What do you think?
 
Cheers
