  1. Tom- The pictures are great! Amazing detail work. They'll be a great help. Thanks again. Bob
  2. Thanks for that Tom. I'll have a look and will probably have a good few questions before I put glue to wood. -Bob-
  3. Just checking in. I'm busy going through Anatomy of the Beagle and other sources, checking measurements, finishing inventory and arranging the work station. My plan is to use the Mamoli instructions as a base line and use outside references to fill in the blanks. I think the only way to get 100% accuracy's to build from scratch. For my first one, I'll be happy to have it look something like a boat.

My commentary may get a bit wordy, but I’m really keen on documenting everything, because I’m sure by the time I start my second model I will have totally forgotten the start of this one. So far I’ve broken out all the laser-cut pieces, being sure to first cut, at least partially, through the remaining connections from both sides with my X-acto, so as not to splinter the
  7. Nothing to post yet, I just wanted to set up the topic so it'll be ready when I am, probably in the next day or two.
