Oh my………………

Today I built the other side of the secondary hull and cut the neck out which will later have some simple structure added to it, sheeted, with and thick leading and trailing edge add to it made out of balsa and sanded to shape.
I couldn’t resist propping up the saucer against this structure for a look. This is a bigger model than I have realized up to this point. My goodness. I’m going to go broke making the molds on this model. I figure about 1000 bucks just for the RTV silicone to mold all the parts! Time to starting hunting for deals.

Here’s a picture of a 58 year old big kid and his dream toy! Talk about geek!

    All hail to the over-50-year-old geeks of the world — I’m honored to be a member of said club myself, bro’. May your payment for your next year’s work on my Seaview go at least in part to mold-making supplies or other building or parts necessities for your Big Girl. Can’t wait to see her in person!

    Live Long and Prosper,

      Ah yeah, me too, U8! Even thought I’m no longer a shorty, I’m still a kid. Never saw the logic of out-growing the fun-n-wonder part of myself.

      Child-like, not childish. ;)

        Love the pirate flag too, reminds me of my ELP skull and scimitar t-shirt. I’m sure you’ve heard Pirates by the boys.

        “Who’ll make his mark”, the captain cried.
        “To the devil drink a toast.
        We’ll glut the hold with cups of gold
        And we’ll feed the sea with ghosts
        I see your hunger for a fortune
        Could be better served beneath my flag…

    Thanks Deg! I could agree more!

    I have this big Radio Controlled Pirate ship. Thus the flag!

    I have that shirt too! And a few other things. The Gato boat under it is fully functional too and a lot of those boats during WW2 flew that flag!

    Looking good there Capt.! Are you going to do a Shuttlecraft at the same scale?
