Following the legendary Keil Kraft Eezebilt plans for a Mermaid Ocean going boat. Plans exploded to 200%. Trying to build it completely out of Foam Board.

Length 28 inches. Plans have been photocopied, enlarged and cut out today.


Edit: In hindsight, I have decided to lay the keel out of plywood for extra strength.

Templates pasted on to 3mm and 4mm Foam Board and 3 mm Plywood. The process of cutting them out starts shortly.

Trying to steer this boat back on track. Hopefully the hijackers won't return. Cool

All components cut out of 2mm, 3mm and 4mm foam. The Hull skinning is yet to be cut out of plywood. Will do that tomorrow.

The sheer number of parts involved is daunting.

Scratch building is so much easier, the complexity of the build does not present itself from day 1.

Genius? Hardly Sir. This is just a plan built model. More or less accurate, though I don't really like the angle of the propeller shaft. It is too steep and will result in loss of prop efficiency. I need a shallower angle with a higher pitch prop. Bang Head

Work on the cabin started. Deck notches on the Centre Bulkhead were not accurate and I had to rip the deck apart to align the superstructure.  Bang Head

Due to the less than lukewarm response to this thread (and my other build logs), I've decided to stop documenting the build process here - just not worth my time.

The next entry on this thread shall be that of the boat maiden video. Whenever that is.

VC

700+ views of these two boat thread and 3000 odd for Schnellboot is not lukewarm response, people are seeing it (may be with awe) they are not contributing (me inclusive) coz we don't have much to contribute, atleast me, i am not a boat guy, i sail, kayak, boat all on the action front, what goes into it? no bloody clue, and i am sure it is the similar case with others too, you need to keep on posting your progress for simple reason that any wannabe (like me) can take clues and build from there. i agree modelboatmayhem.com is more engaging, it is model boat forum for god sakes !. My point is, post or no post is upto you, if you do? wannabe boaters will benefit, boat modelling (Nos of which is so few in India) will improve. Remember, a lot of wannabes look upto you.

So !! continue posting  Grin
