Note if your model is to be 24" long, make sure the wood or lifts are not 22"! Yeah, now I've wood for a second half hull. Dumb. Consider it material for a future opportunity. That, and heed the "measure twice" adage. I won't get into the "how to's" of this form of model building. I've proven I may not be reliable there. Many sources are available. Anyway, here are some progress shots of the Greenbriar half hull.

Seems like errors are par for the course today. Lowering the elevation pattern to avoid cutting the keel (will add later with stems) took too much out of the shear. Tunnel vision run amok here. Well, looks like another opportunity. Adding the wood back as deck allowed for illustrating the cockpit.
