Hi there Martin, I had a meeting with the headmistress yesterday, and I have to wait till the board of governors make a decision, until then I can't name the school or the children, but am allowed to repot on the progress.
Week 1, first sketches hung in the classroom and surprisingly they all have a similar profile. Boys seem to want police type boats, girls preferred things like coastguard and rescue boats.
Week 2(next week) they will be trying to make card superstructures and trying for fit and look. There will be 4 groups, so 4 potentiall models
, as the whole top, deck up will be lift off.
I have made the under deck supports, and 4 blank decks in 3mm ply for them to use.
Further updates next weekend.
