    Little boat "Forelle"
    by Mike Stoney ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญ ( Warrant Officer)

    9 months ago
    Here, too, a kit, but soon a reality.
    But, as I said with the Huntsman, first whip up all existing ship corpses is my motto, right?
    At some point, even after the Huntsman, I'll be using my retirement time here!

    PS: The picture is roughly my idea that I would like to realize with this construction kit. Without outboard motor

    Salรผt Zรคme!! (Hello everybody)
    Now I'm a small step further. . . But as I already mentioned, the smaller the boat, the more delicate the hull construction. Unfortunately, some of the parts were not right and had to be fitted first.
    I wouldn't be honest if I said the inaccuracy annoyed me. It's a hobby and this is where customization at its finest begins!
    You want the results to be visible in the end!
    Salute from a landlubber
    PS:It should also be said that this was a set that had been in the attic for 34 years. . Says everything, doesn't it?

    Hello everybody,
    Forgot to post here. But there is not much, except that the wooden parts could not be bent with all my efforts. Attempts with steam, water etc brought nothing. Now I have exchanged the old wood for new. yes and lo and behold it can be bent much better.
    In the meantime I continued to work on the other boats. But I couldn't let go of one thought: Why not convert this boat into a small hydrofoil?? Let yourself be surprised, I won't reveal more at the moment.

    So now I've started with the construction, but the first problems are already appearing. .
    There's only one thing to do: roll up your sleeves!
    Trying to work according to the plan, although my grandson disagrees, which makes me think about planking the boat like DuncanP . .
