Been thinking about a build ?

Post by TUGMYWAY » Tue Oct 01, 2019 5:48 pm

I have a set of plans for a 1:12 scale model of a PBR,Patrol Boat River.
Need your input to see if I have enough to build a real boat from the info ?
But instead of building a copy that is 31' long and 11'7" wide I'm thinking about scaling the real boat to 80%. This would make it 24.8' long and 9.4' wide.
This would put it into the wide load area but way more tow-able.

Take a look at the photos and see what you think ?

I can do the glass layup with C-Flex CF-65. Using the no mold way of doing things.
Been thinking of using it for display and some fun.I'm a ARMY guy but this boat has a spot in my heart. Maybe I should have been drafted into the NAVY ?
