    It's ok to cheat once in a while!

    I think that using a 3D printer is far from being lazy. Most of us buy kits to build that have a load of laser formed parts. You are starting with a reel of plastic thread. I would like to have one also. No limits to what can be done. Well done.

    I think that is a great solution. Must put one on my shopping list.
    Do you use Fusion 360.

    Basic hull finished dry fit motor, shaft and prop, plus rudder. Blue painters tape great for holding hull bottom, better than clamps for 1/16th ply.

    I've built a few, if you get the shaft as level as posable it help to stop them from turning in to subs at speed.๐Ÿ˜”
