    Thank you! no, i wont print it, for i have no printer and besides, i am not sure if that model is suitable for printing because of all the tiny details and the holes in the body.

        Speaking of RPMtech, this started out as one of his series one Seehund hulls. Nothing left of it now, all repatterned- once i started tweaking this and tweaking that, it became clear the original kit was a little too stand-off scale for my tastes. Not the easiest boat to get right, as there were a lot of variations in the originals, and surviving examples have often been hacked about. Still a few details to add before pulling a tool from it. Seehunds are fun boats to drive, and this is a nice handy size at around 21.5".

            That is gorgeous CAD work, JHapprich! If there is any way to get a watertight shell out of the files, that's all that's really needed to take a crack at printing it off.
