    Mould for rear section,the original boat had a cast bow and stern,so in an atempt to copy this the pattern was covered in ally tape and 80 grit paper was pushed onto it to give the effect of a sand casting,hopefully.

    Looking very good, Nigel!
    Interesting hull shape - squashed tube like the Russian Nordenfelt.
