        He is right David, it is your fault. Thank you.
        If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                  • Hi gents,

                    Some time has past sinds my last post, I was bored with the production work, so I started preparing my next project.
                    I also hit a roadblock on the VICTOR III. It is not uncommon when creating things, but this was a major one for me, and wanted to share.

                    I made a choice in the density of the tooling board before starting this project, Density: 0.45 g/cm³.

                    First, I encountered some scribing stencils problems, then I however encountered some scribing problems with the material itself. It seemed that the density was to low, scribing results were returning horrible, the material didn’t ship all the time, sometimes it just was compressed, especially in the corners. Very frustrating.

                    So I laid the hulls aside but that didn’t solve the problem.
                    Alter some time off I decided to rebuild the hull from some harder material. I decided to print the bow as a test piece.
                    The scribing was a relieve the material was hard enough and returned a scribing perfect result.

                    I re-designed the hull and printed all the parts. After 120hr the parts were finished, and everything was glued together.
                    The picture below shows the old and the new, the old shows all the scribing attempts, the new hull is partly sanded, the bow is coated in primer (the test piece), the torpedo hatch was the test scribe.

                    Grtz,
                    Bart
