    Bit of a late start to this, I was moving ok with this till I injured my left hand. (steam burn)
    Had the drawings for this and some parts cut for over a year now.. Finaly got things on the move.. messed up a few times due to issue with the drawing (frames off from one page to the next) maybe I didnt read em right ! but the drawing does say its semi scale .. Bit bigger in life tha I tought (small workspace) but should be ok.. Will post more as I get on with it.. using a lot of offcuts and scrap box wood in this..

    Hi Nothernflotsam
    Have a look in your personal messages. I have sent you a pdf of the MM articles on the Exploit.
    Cheers

    Plans are from Sarik Hobbies...
    I may be bit rough with the printed paper it arrived on, but it seems to tear on the folds very easy. :(

    Have to tape it up

    You might try measuring the width of the right frames on the drawing and compare them to the measured width on the left side. Sometimes there is some distortion of the plan during reproduction. Thatโ€™s why I have learned just to use one side folded in half (unless it is a kit). That way it will be symmetrical.

    But given how far you are now, I think it looks great, and I would not know from looking at the photos.

    Ive driven a real one of these on the Mersey but this may be beyond my skill level at the moment as new to all this.

    I'm attempting to use the drawings from Sarik
    https://www.sarikhobbies.com/product/rnxs-exploit/

    feature Marine modeling February 1991 ( having a hard time finding a copy)
    Although I aint too sure if the lines on the drawing are off or I messed up.. just when I traced off the frame lines the left side comes out wider than the right ?
    So working with what looks Ok๐Ÿ™ˆ

    Framing looks great! I know how those delays go. I have several projects that have been โ€˜interruptedโ€™ by life!

    Glad to see you are back on yours!
