  1. So I'm building the Smuggler dory for display. At 1/4" = 1', it's a small model. Here's the instruction sheet and kit parts.
  2. This model I actually started a few months ago. I started a course in model boat building in February, and selected it as topic for the the semester. However, due to the corona outbreak the course got canceled. When I saw the schedule for the autumn recently I didn't find the course listed anymore. Then I realized that I will need to finish it on my own, and for that I will need the help and advice by the community here. I currently have another build ongoing, so the pace for this one might be slow. I will however document the build up to the point where I am currently. The subject is a small (4.4 m long) clinker built flat bottomed rowboat of traditional Swedish design. From the course I got a copy of the plans and templates for the planks. I'm rather certain the the plans was published in this book (which unfortunately is out of print): The white boat in the back on the cover looks similar to the one I'm building. It is primarily a rowboat, but a small sail can also be flown.
  3. It looks like a rowboat in my head, so that's what I'm calling it... Picked up some cardstock and downloaded some plans to give me something to work on while I wait for my next kit to arrive, but my printer isn't working... I decided to just start cutting and gluing without plans to see what would happen. Why not?? This is what I have so far. Keel is 6 layers of card laminated together, the rest of the framing is 4 layers. I'm going to try planking with strips of card. I intended to start from the rear and work forward, but the first frame piece ended up being too narrow. Not wanting to waste it, I decided to see if it would fit anywhere else... it did. That's why there's one frame piece (what are they called again?) out in the middle of nowhere... This could be interesting...
