How to make old plans readable

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks


As I wrote in the "What have you done today" thread, I`m working on redrawing the plans for the Lippisch WIG Craft. I use Open Office for the first steps, and later import them into Design Cad 3D Max. This mthod is useful, when the original drawings are not larger than A4 format, larger drawings can not be made with open Office! They must be redrawn directly in the 3D Program, in 2D Mode.

Here comes the video!



Best regards

Hi Lou


The jig system for small turned wooden parts is "stolen" from Johann @archjofo. I could not work without a lathe, that is one of the most worthful tools for model building. And useful for some repair works in the houshold too!

The patrol boat was my first attempt in scratchbuilding a boat, I must buy two new contollers to bring her back to the pond!
