    The design, frame wise the mesurements are not right most are not a inch so i have been rethinking things for a while now on a redesign or a diffrent ship to build knolege on before i go back to it. I have been playing with a American DD design, smaller, fewer parts, designing the super structure out of paper that sort of thing not that complicated but would most likeley be a throw away after a few uses with the option to replace sections easley if needed with the new design.

    alright. have you considered using foam backed tagboard for the ribs etc? I use that stuff to mockup a boat before cutting wood.
