Avast mateys, Old tin is not the most versatile material to work with so experimenting with forming this unbendy stuff is 90% of the job.Whilst tinkering with hull forms,Ive come up with this experimental hull albeit in the early stages. What if there was a hull that could be a ship,motor boat,yacht or even a submarine???
I leave myself wide open to ridicule most of the time!

I find nothing but accolades here - great work it’s something I couldn’t do

Good to see someone working with tin again.
I remember the old Sutcliffe models form the 1950s and they were good fun.

Keep up the good work.😊
