Whilst on holiday I thought I'd move completely out of my comfort zone. I've always wanted to build an open launch showing the internal details. Various attempts have come to nought. Looking for something easily transportable this caught my eye Kit sprues? Tis all made from Limewood which means it has minimal straight grain though a trifle soft Firsts up a simple jig to keep it all straight until frames/longitudinals are in place. Commence fitting the frames The idea is the frames are planked and the centre is removed, time will tell . . . Frames in place. Coffee stirrer used to brace frames. The transom look a bit precarious so I'm leaving that until I have the sheer planks in place First sheer plank in place Thanks for looking in, I hope you enjoy something a bit different Kev
