    Have a look at the front of the sail in this photograph. o
    Not vertical - its raked!


    I have two sets of plans that have two different sails. One is high and thin; the other is short and fat. Which one is correct?

      Both. There were variations within the class.

        The Zwezda 1/350 model of the November contains two sails that are very comparable in shape to the ones you have produced. As I am no friend of ICloud at the moment my mobile camera is blocked. If any one out there has the said kit maybe you can take a Picture? / Fredrik

          The shorter sail is the right one for 627 although 627 and 627A have nearly identical sails only differing in the sonar assembly. 627 A sails are slightly less streamlined, the profile courve of the sails roof is more straight. The high sail is of projekt 645/k-27, a november-subclass that looked different in many ways.

            Thanks Jörg. I'll make both and see which I prefer later on.

                Both need a sharp edge on the sternward end.they look like a plane in horizontal profile

                  Yes. I thought so too. I took the shape of the sectioned drawing that you sent me. Quite thin and quite high. Also quite square.

                      There isn't much to this boat at present; just getting the rear end sorted out and making the sail look slightly better. At the moment its built to the dimensions given in the plan but I am dubious about its accuracy. That is compounded by the many versions of sail used on this class.

                        I'm putting some detail on the sail to see how it looks. The plans that I have are not so great and a lot of the detail on this sail is lifted from photographs. Still not entirely happy with the shape. It looks a bit too long.

                          Thanks. I have all those and they are all inaccurate. I have a small portion of the tail which is accurate, however it is incomplete. No doubt Merriman's third law will ensure that the accurate plans only turn up once I am finished.

                            Really? I know it is not the most clear photo, but at the top of the page, there is that black and white shot of a November from above, and that sail looks plenty long. Especially compared to yours.



                            How does it look with a nose on the boat? Even just a rough shape so you can see it in complete overall length. I know you were chasing perfection, but it all looks great so far!

                              A bit more work on the sail today. After 39 degrees yesterday; today is cool and rainy. Weird weather but good for pottering around in the shed.

                              A few more holes, hatches and such and it looks half decent.
