Just a short note on epoxying the nylon hull. You would want to support the nylons by a layer of paper or similar with a closed surface. Squeeze out the extra resin with a soft scraper (balsa or such).

Otherwise you put too much resin on and it will not fill all the small gaps in the nylon. Other than that the hull worked out as planned. Some cleanup needs to be done now and the openings for the cutout inlets.

Update:
One large step for hds shipwreckers co., one small pic for the forum, presenting: The Hull(k) ... amazing what they do with underpants these days ...

Aft section with inlet build in. What is really cool is that the opening of the aft inlet do fall in line with the frames of the hull. Same should happen for the front body section. Adds some visual spice for close up looking.
First sketch of the deck loosely attached to clarify sectioning and fix points. When you followed me with your own sub project you should have now something similar ...

Sharky shows its teeth ... on to the technical stuff. Hull will be beautified when everything else is in working conditions. Deck drawing for laser finished. Not sure which material to take. Maybe 1mm Balsa so i can encarve the planks and so on.

Deck Layout (Directors Cut). First test sheets, on the right, resined and ok. Material will be 1mm Finnboard. But i do have to re-tyre my laser cutter. We do have a disagreement about "linear" or "straight". If that won't help i need to design me own one with linear bearings and stuff (but boy am i in the mood to do this ... :roll: )

Conning tower platform cut from DIY plywood. May be the matrial to go also for the deck.
