Hull Construction Part I

Use the (vertical) scrollbar at right as needed. Clicking on any thumbnail will take you to a larger version of the photo.

  First I installed butt-straps from Eduard.   Next I fabricated the shafts and struts. Note the upper sides of the hull have been color-coated.
  Another view of the shafts.   Shafts and struts complete.
  Here's the hull painted in MS22. The waterline tapers from 3-feet astern to 7-feet forward.   The shafts, props, and rudders installed.
  This view shows how "slender" the aft section of the hull is.   Side view of the completed hull.
Use the inner scrollbar at right as necessary!
