pete48 Posted July 16, 2014 Share #1 Posted July 16, 2014 This Summer Like every summer since I was a Kid , I get bit by the America's Cup Bug , This year is no exception , I have just about completed my first 12 meter Yacht ( Australia II ) and I am not quite ready to start my next project ( I will need some more R & D ) I Decided to build the 1987 America's Cup Winner Stars & Stripes, The Last 12 Meter Yacht to Win the America's Cup. She will be built in a 3/16" = 1' - 0" Scale. ( same scale as the Boxing Kangaroo ) This build will be a hull only build, I may detail the deck by cutting out the cockpit section of the boat. ( we will see ) I remember this America's cup very well , and was glued to the T.V. the entire time it would come on. I grew up in a Sailing Family, so this is our Super Bowl / World Series. Any way I got the Keel Layed out along with the frames and cut them out . Next I will cut the notches in the Keel for the Frames, true them up and install ( at that point I will decide if I am going to do the Cockpit Details. Here are the results Keith_W, Piet, Mirabell61 and 11 others 14 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
