Nice work and good to see someone using a building jig  ok2 , it astounds me how many people i see building boats without using a building jig to keep things square and straight . Look forward to seeing how she comes together , any pics of the real thing to show us what she will be like . Thanks for sharing.

I keep reading the title of this thread as Delta S4, a very different thing!


Great progress so far though, and she looks like she will be a very pretty boat when finished!

Great to see traditional boat building. Building on a jig with larger models is critical.  The integral chine rails should be very effective. My freelance model in 1975 had similar.

Surprisingly not brushless motors!  I converted all my boats to brushless with big weight savings and power increases.  However, it looks a good set up.

Davo,

Concerning brushless motors, I'll see later . I put Power 700/13 Turbo Robbe because I had seen on KMB site an article with a yacht NAJADE fitted with those motors and KMB hydrojets KAMEWA.
The sailing seemed to be realistic. Delta 54 is not a sport boat !
I will see after testing ! "To convert or not to concert, that is the question"  :embarrassed:
You are not the one to say that.

Lovely workmanship. I think you would see not only more power but quite a weight saving in the stern should you decide to go over brushless motors.
It may be worth considering a swim platform that only projects out as far as the thruster nozzles. This could then be left in place.
Looking forward to the next pictures.
