    Ok, I was just curious. I have finished the molds but now I have to work on a keel to hold them all together.

    You forgot the stem. The bow. The front part

    Ya I know that, I am going to leave it with the keel so I can make it one piece.

    In the actual plans there isn't a keel but 1 I want to see what it would look like and 2 for me it would be easier to set it up that way.

    Hey guys, I have another update. The last couple of days have been hectic but I am working on the model. I was debating on putting a keel on it or like it is in the picture so I chose the picture. I have only got a little bit of it done though because I had to redo 2 molds and I was busy all day Saturday. I will post a pic of what I have done in the morning.

    Ok guys here is the model. Just keep in mind that this is my first model of anything and I have really sophisticated x-acto knifes and sandpaper. :) sorry for being late but I wanted to finish it before I took pictures of it. Here is pic 1 of 2.

    Don't worry about the time. Haste makes waste.

    I was sanding the bottom of the mold to get it flush when the wood split along 1's slot. Luckily I still tad a ton of glue on hand and I got it all fixed up, you can't even tell it happened.
