Steve does another Elefant

Post by Steve Norris » Thu Aug 20, 2020 9:36 pm

This is my 3rd Elefant build, the first 2 being commission builds.
This one will have as much detail added as possible without going daft.
The lower hull has been detailed , not 100% but good enough.

A good start, plenty more to do

You lost me at the phrase "... without going daft."

Isn't that why we're all here?

Looking forward to seeing this one unfold. Love to see the kinds of amazing things folks get up to here!

Cheers,

RPR

Some more Elefant progress.
The basic hull goes together very nicely, just a bit of tweaking required on the rear fillet pieces.

A counter sunk screw was added to the back end of each fillet piece to add a bit of extra rigidity.

Overall view of the assembled lower hull, the fit of all the parts was very good with virtually no adjustments required.

The mudguards will have diamond tread plate added when complete. The forward section has been put in place as a trial fit
