    Haven't worked much on the 598 as I got side tracked glassing the hull plug for the 1/96 Delta IV

      Pics of the stern planes, top of sail and the mold. Finished the first layer of glass cloth on the hull. I shaped the new bow for the 1/96 Delta IV yesterday. That is the last styro foam I will ever use for boat hulls or anything else for that matter. Next boat hulls I will make out of solid balsa or thick sheet balsa to do the separate hull sections. Foam is way more expensive plus it is a pain to use.

        Hi Tim
        As usual your work is incredible. The detailing is the best I`ve seen offered. When your ready, orders should be coming in. Keep up the good work and postings.

          Scotty beam me up or is it down do your eyes deceive you? That looks a awful lot like a dare i say a 1/96 Delta IV. I am even going to make it a split mold bow and separate stern just so you won't have to pawn your roo's to pay high shipping.
