Do you have any tools or access to any? Really I started my Bismarck with LITERALLY nothing more than a $20 jig saw from walmart and Dremel. A lot of boats are still made with wood ribs. My Bismarck is, @Beaver first ship was (with a fantastic build thread), @Kevin P. probably still has a small lumber yards worth of wood hull boats. And here is a nice set of blue prints with the hull lofts https://www.the-blueprints.com/blue...1028/view/uss_cb-1_alaska_battlecruiser_1945/ Ive used that site before. There is also 3D printing which has been shown to have promise in boat building. I am actually in the process of printing out a buck of the Scharnhorst class to make molds from, and another member fully printed a boat and successfully battled it. I’m not trying to push, just letting you know there are options for making your own that don’t rely on covid-19 issues.
