Just printed a set of eezebilt drawings from the plans section .i am very lucky and work in a university that has lots of facilities I took the drawings to the reprographic department who scanned them for me I have taken the file to the CAD workshop (luckily I manage the workshop technicians) and left the file to be laser cut in 3mm marine birch ply ,off for a few days so will pick it up on Monday will post some pictures when its ready.

The Joy's of working! I didn't think I'd miss work when I retired but I certainly miss the drawing office and photocopiers! Make the most of your facilities while you can!

Happy modelling,

Edward

Hi Marky, I chose the easier Dolphin 16 and used Excel to explode into 9 x A4 and then glued them together. Oh for your resources. I chose the Dolphin as I am out of practice and needed something simple. Good luck. Are you doing a blog?

Here's the Dolphin 16 so far. I have upped her to 20" and a few modifications to total cabin coverage to give me room for the power and radio setup. Just realised this was not Eezebilt but a Meccano plan. I will probably try the Eezebilt Sea Princess next though. Ok, old age doesn't come on it's own.........

my granddaughter has decided if her brother can build a boat and get glue in his hair and paint everywhere else then so can she (a little bit of big eyes and petted lip)so E-mailed my tame CAD lazer wizard to get another one cut he's going to cut one in ply and the other 2 in 3mm mdf for the kids ,the back bedroom's going to look like a shipyard with 3 on the slips
