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

    Haha Balsa it is.
    Actually the whole thing is balsa
    Easy to work with ,but so very fragile, ive broken more than a few bits,but im not sure i have the patience to try and cut all the small parts out of ply using a tool ?

    Cheers

    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?

    Oh yes, that's really coming out well. I love the wood on that.
