    I am building an O scale "Racing" boat so I thought I would start a progress thread.
    It is built with sheets of mahogany micro plywood.

    It is based on the Garwood Speedster. A real clasic from the 30`s & 40`s

    It is nice to see your back in business again. I forgot to ask how long did they lock you out of the country? I'm glad to see your back in.
