Ady Gil, trimaran - Posted: 1st Jan 2019
So far I've shaped the wings to the correct shape and water proofed the hull. The pictures of the boat in white were taken before the wing photos

1/36 Ady Gil Trimaran Wave Piercer - Posted: 11th Oct 2018
This build started out as a crap toy speed boat that resembled the New zealand wave piecer Ady Gil (ex- Earthrace) that was cut in two in 2010 by the illegal japanese whaling vessel Shonan Maru no2. The original speedboat toy was 22 inchs long and had straight wings that connected the pontoons, the wings and the pontoons have been changed and custom made onto the existing hull and the bow has been extended and sharpened (now 26in), the stern has been rounded. The hull has now been gel coated and i have started sanding it back.

An interesting model to produce, have you a picture of the original toy so we can see the difference your work has made.

Great stuff.
