Nordic Folkboat by Adamjoyce1 - Scale 1:24 - SMALL - Waterline Model - My First Boat


Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm just getting into the world of model shipbuilding and decided to try my hand at a waterline solid hull yacht before I dive too deep. This hull design spoke to me for some reason. I've got several basswood pieces that I'm going to laminate for the hull and then start carving. One question I have, should i just print out several copies of the hull plan to make templates from? Or should i try to redraw the curves in solidworks first?

The only caution I have is that if you photocopy the plans, double check them as photocopy machines never, ever copy at exactly 100%.  Even enlargements and reductions can be off.

Thanks, I printed out enough copies to make my template, so if I need more I'll probably just print them. I wouldn't have thought about a photocopier changing scale though.
