    Very sorry to hear that Mark, my condolences.
    Can well imagine you are very busy right now, my Dad passed on at 88 a few years ago.
    Mum is still goin' strong - 94 last March!
    Nevertheless my hair stands up whenever I see my sister's number in the phone display ...
    Best wishes,
    Doug

    Managed to get a little time to myself and have managed to make a start on the hull ,strips are 20mm and 10mm -1.6mm plywood strips ,there's a few wee gaps but as the old shipyard saying goes "putty and paint makes a job what it ain't"

    Just curious, would the material you use work for smaller models? My hulls are usually 10" long and 4" wide. Frames can be a challenge with balsa.

    The frames are of 4mm ply ,I use this because I can get lots of scrap off cuts from the place I used to work before I retired, I go in once a month for what my wife calls "my red cross parcel".๐Ÿ˜‚
