Well I have finished building the 1:1 boat so now I'm doing the model. The plans are drawn at 1:8 scale so I'm going 1 to 1 off them which is very convenient. I aim to make it as much as the original is made as is practical, including using the same timbers from left overs. The exception to this is the transom because the original is rosewood but the grain is so open it was barely usable at 1:1 so I'm going to use mahogany instead. When I met Mark Pearse a while back I mentioned that I might do this and he was very keen that I should so here you are Mark. The plans have all the lines I need so it was pretty easy to draw it up plus the understanding of having already built it goes a long way.
I have been working on a little project lately, something I've wanted to do for years, making my own boat. It's an Iain Oughtred design, Tammie Norrie, a 4.5mtr (15 foot) clinker sailing dinghy. I'm really enjoying using full sized hand tools, especially the planes but the lessons learned in ship modelling have been a huge help.
