Now Will to refer in context to Dicks post was he requesting the completion of the excellent Drawings Jeff is allowing us to enjoy or does he harbour a wish for the completion of a full size 80' Elco to Jeffs Drawings.

Whart a shame if it were the later that you refer to Jeff draging his feet to...

Can you tell I've had a good day today even found a fellow Aussie who I talked PT Boats with and I gave PTBOATS websight to as he did not know it existed,

Now I call that a very good day.

Well duh Will, I get paid by the hour. Of course my boots look more like moccasins.

Psssst, Will - Just between you and I, I think he is dragging his feet too, because he's letting accuracy, detail and precision get in the way ! ! ! ! !

Dick and Will;
Dragging his feet, maybe so on these diagrams. But when is he going to teach all of us how to do this???? Jeff has really been dragging his feet on this......since at least 2008!!!
Take care,
TED

@ Ted: Yeah! I tried to do it myself, but I broke the point on my #2 pencil.

Ted/Will - yes, he keeps telling me how easy it is - - -

However, after a few disingenuous attempts at experimenting with 3D & CAD I find myself disheartened every time I tear-off a couple feet of Vellum (my high resolution touch sensitive analog monitor), tape it under my Parallel Edge (I like to think of it as a semi automated T-square), flop down a couple 30/60 degree Triangles (analog delineated angle guides), a couple of isometric Ellipse Guides (semi automated Hole-o-meter), a large pair of 12" German stainless steel Proportional Dividers (semi automated scaling computer), a couple of Lead holders (analog stylists) and a nice sand paper pencil lead pointer (analog line adjustment tool). Then start plotting out each reference point before connecting the lines. This is my old stone age CAD program, post chisel and hammer but not by much.

Oh, I forgot mention the need for my Scum-X Pad drafting powder, and some good old Art Gum (analog delete/revise tool). This is really sad with all the computing power I sitting before me on my desktop and also at my feet, I'm still scribbling on paper after more than forty five years of technical illustrating. One positive note, I do trace all my line drawings into Adobe Illustrator and save the final art as an electronic .EPS computer files on my SMUG Mac.

My dream would be Jeff hitting the print button on a high res 3D printer and a complete PT Boat is created with all that hardware detail. Now THAT would be awesome! Keep it coming Jeff!
