    ๐Ÿ“ Look for a simple balsa build

    gman3000, the rescue launch is the best for a first time build, and lots of room for motor and RC gear

    You could have a look at at my kits, not balsa but quality liteply. accurate laser cut parts and step by step instructions. The other good thing is they are economically priced to try and encourage people in to the hobby, (cheap as chips!) if you are interested email me. or go to HAKITS.CO.UK (boat page).

    ๐Ÿ“ CNC boat kits...?

    This all sounds very familiar, I don't want to knock your project but be careful. I have experiance of cnc routers and laser cutters, laser cutters put no pressure on the material, its amazing how much side load a milling cutter puts on the material and can rip pieces out of the sheet. In the past i put strips of masking tape on the back of the material then held it down with double sided tape, this will hold pieces in place ( most of the time) Good luck

    It is not a huntsman of any type as they had an aft cabin. The Huntress and swordsman had open deck at the stern. there have been lots of kits and plans of this type, what is the length?

    Hello modellers, just a bit of an update. I have been busy designing 3 more model kits, A pilot Launch (540mm), River cruiser (500mm) and a slipper launch, the latter will be available in 2 sizes 460mm & 700mm. I hope these will be available by early March.

    ๐Ÿ“ Lazer cut Kits

    Hello, As i said the kits are based on models i built in my youth. Now i am retired i enjoy drawing in cad and the challenge of turning my drawings into models, I thought other people might wish to build my models especially younger builders and so i sell the kits at cost. I take on board your helpful comment and will remove them from my advertising.

    Hello fellow modellers, I thought you might be interested in my range of small model boat kits which i have been selling on a well known auction site. I have started with 6 basic liteply kits based on models i built in my youth. They are all computer drawn and laser cut making them accurate and easy to construct. When i designed these kits it was with the thought that maybe they could be built be younger models with help from a more experienced assistant, therefore they are at what i could call pocket money prices ranging from ยฃ29-ยฃ39 each. I would be glad to hear fellow modellers thoughts, Thanks.
