Hi Everyone

Here is another update, which shows start of infilling with balsa to the stern frames. The balsa is of bits left over from my SotS build, waste not, want not...Laugh

Hi Everyone

I have infilled the Stern and now the Bow flares with left over balsa from Sots...I think this will be a good basis for later cladding ( method yet to be decided....BigGrin Cool

All looking very good John.

Like the idea of infilling with the balsa. That should give you a lovely base to work the planking/cladding over.

Hope it all continues well.

Hi Tony
Thanks for looking in and the kind words....BigGrin Yes, I've decided to infill the whole lot as the keel was still a bit floppy...Crying Should have made it a bit bigger!...Blink

Some progress follows...Cool

Hi Everyone

Here's a little more progress - working on the rudder / rudder frame...Cool A lot trickier than I thought and took quite a lot of trial and error before I was happy with it...Cool A bit more touching up to be done though....BigGrin

More progress now...Cool

Did more infill to stern section...Cool

Have decided to infill the complete hull as it seems too fragile...Blink Each section will be filled by hollow box using 9.5mm balsa -instead of a solid infill - and just as firm as it turns out...BigGrin Cheaper too!...Laugh
