    Seaview

    Tony, I wish I could say for sure when. I have several projects to finish up first. The Seaview has ended up on the back burner for a while. I think I started the project two years ago. I obtained a mesh from Luis Ramos Janeiro with his permission to develop it into a paper model, and started working at reducing the poly count and getting it ready, but I also share that project ADD problem and keep getting distracted. I have finally established a priority list, but the seaview is third or fourth on the list so realistically it's probably at least a year away.
    I'll start a thread when it gets going, so keep your digital ears (Dears?) open.

    Your Thai customer seems to be doing an excellent job. That hull is nice and straight. Did he build the formers out of foamcore?

    Cheers,

    Is it possible for this thread to be converted to a PDF and placed in the tutorials section like some other fine threads?

    It would be very helpful. Normally I'd do it myself but Acrobat is not cooperating.

    Hi Mike
    I'm not sure that I understand your question correctly.

    His former is made of a kind of paper. We can buy at stationary store. This paper is for architect model building. It is made from sugarcane. Light but strong and easy for cutting.

    Best Regards

    Foamcore is a layer of fairly dense foam sandwiched between two layers of card. It's available in several thicknesses and colours. It's light and strong and can be easily cut and glued. It's often used for constructing architectural models.

    Thank you wa6677 and stickyfingers.
    Your posts made me think of the days I did the U-Boat.

    Hi MAC,

    sorry, I don't know how big the files are. You have to ask at ecard models.

    Your second question: I am sure the files are all up to date; you don't have to care about the updates.
