pete48 Posted August 11, 2014 Share #1 Posted August 11, 2014 Let Me start by saying "These are some pretty amazing racing Machines" . The Volvo Ocean Race is an Around the World Race , The Open 70 class is the largest , I am using plans that I got off the internet ( lines drawing ) for the Camper Volvo 70 wich was the 2011-2012 New Zealand Boat . I am building her in a 1/4" = 1' - 0" scale so she will be about 17 1/2" long wich is perfect to free Sail . So I will build her to Sail. I will use Basswood for the Backbone ( Keel ) Frames and Planking . I will also be doing the 2 part West System on the hull, so she will be plenty strong. This morning I got up and had coffe , and after spraying the final coat of white on America3 , I went to kinkos with my flash drive, and had the drawings enlarged to scale, printed them out and went to Michael's for the wood, I am planning on my own color scheme for this one as well as doing some things that I had seen on some of the other boats , So it would be my entry for this years 2014-2015 race. and that's part of the Fun ( That is what it's all about ) Here is where I am at : Bernhard, avsjerome2003, hexnut and 9 others 12 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
