      Looks 3D printed. Is it Bart?
      If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

          No, altough I used some machines, itís handcrafted Tom, I will explain why:
          • First, I used a 3D printer, capable of printing Polyurethane foam up to 0.05 mm.
          • Next step I use a CNC router to get lost of the printing lines
          • To face off the pieces I used a CNC lathe
          • The final operation was to sand the whole thing down with 1500 grid sanding paper.
          And by using this last-mentioned technique, which I think is highly skilled, I can say honestly that it is a HANDCRAFTED piece of ART.

          As you will understand Iím leaving this forum for what it is for the next couple of weeks ÖÖplease sent me a PM when the unleashed dragon is calmed down.

          Grtz,
          Bart

            I did not use a jig David
            I designed the bow piece with the torpedo tubes as a separate section. This way I had a stable & rigid platform with a very low profile.

            My first thought was to fabricate some plugs that go into the tube holes, 0.5mm smaller in diameter, so I will obtain a scribing effect. But looking at them now I think they look awesome without. For the potential assembler is would be nice that he could chose, leave them open or put the plugs in.
            However, the later will mean that I have to integrate them when I layup the bow with fiberglass, probably I can only pull that off is by using chopped glass fibre.

            Grtz,
            Bart
