Hi ya Joe, I just nipped out and measured the depth of the cockpit floor on my model - 4.5" - but I haven't got a clue what it should be  :embarrassed:
The mahogany capping on yours looks like it's supposed to  :-)) .
Also agree about the air intakes  :-) .


Regards,
Ray.

Joe I had to google that wood as I've never heard of it before but it looks lovely.  I think your end result could look very subtle and also very nice.

Thanks for that Ray I've just popped up and measured mine 4 3/8" so that will do for me.   :-))

Joe
Revised 1/11 scale plan on its way. There were two very different shapes of airscoops used on H31, depending on the engines fitted. The elliptical ones were the earlier version e.g. "Johmad", which was the boat modelled in the original kit.

Hi Joe

Looking to be a really nice boat. Totally agree about the air intakes being too small. In those drawings I posted earlier in the thread the outer lines are of the size required.

Yeah the small air scoops are going and I'm going to attempt to make the later large rectangular air handlers, not sure how I'm going to do them yet but I'll have a bash.

well it turned out to be a very satisfying afternoon, after a lot of head scratching I came up with a design for the air scoops based on a couple for photos, and I have to say I'm quite pleased with the result, they still pass air to the inside of the hull, there is a baffle in them that stops the air just passing though,  the paper on the deck is a template for the sub decks I was working on before the air scoops but had to leave the deck while I was in air scoop mode  {-)

They certainly look the part Joe. First model I've seen with that style of air intake.
