What size? Great project, and if you build it like all your other projects it will be beautiful on the water. I love the J class. I have a Whirlwind, but it's not very scale (no details). They sail great, and are more maneuverable than many people think. Just don't run over any powerboats, as the long overhanging bow and huge lead mine tends to drive them right under.

Thanks to bad weather, I am working again on my J class. I finished everything inside of hull, is time to glue it. For now, I used just crazy glue, today is everything glued by slow epoxy. deck is glued too. Tomorrow I will cut out openings in deck for superstructure and Windows.
