I would like some advise please. I have returned to model boat building after many years. I am scratch building the Sangsetia police launch that first appeared in 1986.
I have cut out the bulkheads and now I am in the process of finishing their outside profiles. I am using the plans to gauge size. So far so good. As I started to finish the concave/convex radiI from the sides to the keel I am finding these lower profiles differ from side to side. Naturally if I continue to use the plans as drawn as a gauge, I don't think the end result will be too pleasing.
I am thinking a better way to address the problem would be to select the same lower profile on each bulkhead and use it as my gauge to ensure symmetry is achieved. I will then have to apply the same method of finishing when I notch each bulkhead. I hope this is making some sense. I would like to hear from anyone who has come across this same issue. Thank you in advance.
