Great looking boat, I had one of these several years ago, Northlight by Caldercraft, first kit boat I ever built, regret selling It!
Response by Deswelham on the 6th Mar 2014
Thanks. Must admit that It Is my favourite. Sails like a brick but not Into sporty boats, reactions far too slow

Very realistic looking model. 👍
It must have been difficult to collect enough cans to complete the task. Such dedication, the seriour modeller knows no bounds. hic! 😀
Response by hammer on the 19th Nov 2013
This Is a very quick way to make a hull. First remove the silver paper from one side of the foam & reduce thickness to the distance between the stations. Starting at the widest mark the station Include the centre line. mark on the on the silver side, cut out square. Continue fore & aft. Stick them all together aligning the centre marks top& bottom, hold In place with cocktail sticks until the PVA Is set. Carve the square edges down to the silver at the smaller station. Mark the lines of the plates, cut the plates 8-10 scale ft. 3ft wide max. Simulate rivets before glueing with polyurethane wood glue. The edges of the outer line of plates over lapping the Inner use super glue (thick verity) Hope this Is clear. hic! hic!!
