    McCormickDesign Draftsman - 3D modeller

    Hi all, this is my first post here.

    In 2009 for my final year Univercity assignment, I took a chance to design a boat as if I was an established yacht designer. I'd asked a friend, Murray White (best mate of the late Des Townson) and his wife to be my "fake" clients and conjure up their dream yacht they had always wanted.

    It took alot of effort and time as I had never done such an extensive project before, but a challange none the less.

    I'll post the written 'brief' outcome on the next post but I will leave you with the Final Model I built along with a good mate of mine, Mal Wilkinson.

    Models details:

    Scale 1:20

    It was going to be a remote control model, but I changed my mind...

    I built a furling boom based on the full scale "lesuire-furl" design

    Working port and starboard lights

    Working anchor and chain stop

    hatch opens and closes

    All the best, leave me any positive, suggestions or what could be changed in the future.

    As I am a novice, any advice helps.

    Thanks

    I'm also looking for full time junior designer / stylist position, if you have a job available. email me at mccormickyachtdesigns@gmail.com

    It took 3 and a half months to complete, 5 days a week for around 5 - 7 hours a day. A friend and myself working at odd times thoughout the process.

    Thanks for your compliment.

    ceder and e glass does not always work out so well
    if you get a pin hole the ceder swells and causes problems

    also teak is dam heavy stuff
    did you do a weight budget for this thing and is all that heavy teak up high going to work out ok

    In reguards to the cedar and eglass and teak. I followed a breif on what my clients wanted to get the end result.

    She is heavy one @ 30 tonne.

    Thanks for your post.

    Cheers
