    Sorry for the delay in response... this mold was tucked into storage with a boat in it. Had to wait until we sold one to pull the parts and measure the scribe.

    The scribe line in the deck mold is 3 & 3/8” Diameter.

    Have decided that driving a truck is no longer the direction I am going for employment. This is a family decision based on my stress levels, and what the heart doc said after lots of expensive tests. As well as the continuing damage to my neck and back. Currently have numbness and loss of fine motor control in both hands/arms. More the left side but still very aggravating. So for now I am going to be looking for something slower just to have some income while working on getting the new family endeavor going. Wish me luck. Point is I will be unable to buy any new projects for a while. Lol. And all these great hulls you keep making are sure to make me want to spend what I don't have. Lol. At least it is going well for someone hahaha. I like how wide your selection is getting. Keep up the great work.

    Thing 3 and Thing 6 were working together on the 60” Los Angeles Class Attack Submarine today. Was wonderful to see them working together and having fun. It’s going to be a cool model.

    Off topic. When you build the molds, it's awesome that you have showing what your doing by the way, on the smaller parts/hulls like say a destroyer in 1/96th scale about 30-36" long would you do a two piece mold or could it be a one piece if your just looking for a small run of say 5 or 6 hulls? I really want a Z boat in 1/96th and a few for promotion of the hobby locally but fiberglass is much easier to fit out than wood hulls in this size. Thanks.

    It all depends on the angle of the dangle. Reverse Transom, or some tumblehome on the sides, casements or armor belts make that call.

    I always prefer one piece molds whenever possible.

    Ok. I see what your saying. As this will be my first attempt at making my own mold from scratch I figured you would be the one to ask. But if I can save some labor I'm all for it. Lol.

    Mostly looking for something to do while I'm out of work but utilizing as much stuff as I can from stock on hand. Lol. Plan to use some foam I have left over from some other projects and some cheap thin ply available locally to build the plug. Thanks for the advice.

    That little tug looks like a great candidate for a kitbash into a 1/144 tramp steamer :) What are her other dimensions (beam & height)?

    She’s 14” long, 3 & 3/8” wide, 2.5” tall at the bow and 1.75” tall midships. The prettiest lil thing we’ve made lately.
