    Yellow tube is odd isnโ€™t it? It might be where a stuffing box could be added, whatever it is, the prop doesnโ€™t seem to turn.

    Just popped off the wheelhouse and superstructure. Next, I took out a section of deck that was splitting along the grain. Turns out the hull is carved out of cedar, the deck is solid cedar too. It tapers from 3/8โ€ (9mm) to 1/8โ€ (3mm) in the aft.

    The hull sides are roughly 3/4โ€ ( 16mm) thick.

    Cedar is light weight and carves relatively easy.

    The model builder wrote his name and address in several places on the inside of the hull and superstructure

    Hey Roy๐Ÿ˜€
    That'll come in real handy for looking down the Wormholes you seem to keep falling into.

    Hi I have dealt with mystery boats before. I have an endoscope which connects via a USB socket to my laptop screen. Is is about 5mm diameter and easily slips in to a small hole and has a built in light. Cost < ยฃ10 have used it a few times and has proved most useful.

    Picked it up today and found it was a display model only. The wheelhouse is not removable and it appears to have been exposed to sunlight for long periods of time as some parts have warped. Interesting that the builder used needles on both the bow and aft for the safety wire holders.

    There are four removable torpedoes which are not seen in these photos.

    The hull appears to be sheet on frame as the model is light weight. This leads me to think the hull is hollow and not a carved solid hull.

    I will give it a water ballast test; if it checks out, then I may use it with one of my tugs and tow it.
