Beautiful wood work. I still want to try something like that with an aircraft.

Very nice work Chris. It's been years since I've built a boat like that. It has some very graceful lines to it. Are you planning any interior detail for it?

Hi ,Not really too sure about the interior as ive found it hard to find some pics of what is actually in there ,hehe.
Here is a few pics of progress to date, about 90% complete i think.
Cheers
