      HI @ nigele
      It looks so GREAT!!!.
      1) is Aluminum tape?,if so how can You remove the wood at the end?;how do you did not peel scotch aluminum in water?,
      2) or aluminum sheet?,how can You weld/stick the aluminum sheet? ; and how can You remove the wood from inside?.
      What are the Dimensions at the end?
      It seems to make more easier to do on these method then the Resin and Glass Fiber.Can be used these way to do different types of subs?.
      I am sorry,I have so many question during these construction,can I continue?!.

      Hi Marius,
      This is a plug for a glassfibre mould and will be scrap once a mould has been made from it,it is covered in ally self adesive tape,the frames are mdf and they are covered with .8 plywood,it is 43inches long x 3 3/4 wide 4 1/4 deep.
      hope this helps,
      regards Nigel.

      Oh,

      This is quite an easy one to do,should be able to do the main hull in two halves,and the hatch in one,and as you say I will be able to make more than one if I have the need,glass allways looks like a lot of work but in real terms it's easy and much quicker than you think.
      regards Nigel.

      main hull with rivet holes drilled,the Hunley has flush counter sunk rivets so no rivets will be used on the hull,ally tape will be applied to the hull and lightly pushed into the holes which should give the appearance of dimple's
