Looks really good. Coming together very nicely, and can even see the curve of the deck sheer.
Just wonderful, Pat- I'm in awe.

Patrick, Beautiful start. We may want to talk about using my photo etch project that will help keep fine details.

Thanks Bridge. The plan is to continue using my 3d printed details, but I'm always open to alternatives.

Hi Patrick, really impressive. Seeing your hull complete is getting me itchy to mate the two hull halves of my boat too... still some interior detail to add.
Would the props you got from prop shop suit also a static model in terms of shape, pitch etc? I tried to modify raboesch props for my 80' project but with less than perfect results and the props are quite a concern to me right now..
Looking forward to see yuor project coming together.
Greetings
