Sorry guys I've been busy with other projects (micro gliders, and now a 1987 BMW 325 coupe, more pics of that to follow ). But I did get all the sail templates done yesterday.

Very very nice fred that is going to be awesome on the water !!
I`d try with teh tyvek sails my friend, they are much easier to make and look great, sailing performance is also much improved by the stiffness of the leach.

To make them would take you just a little bit longer than your templates

Very fine, YB! You'll feel like the King of the Pond when you sail her, and rightly so.

I know MB, I know . I still need to set up the running rigging, and make that deep keel. ten try not to sink her In my own defense I'm planning a few other ships too, one full size (about 20').

I've decided to go back and re-rigg the Valhalla. I think by using elastic cord for some of the stays I can get the lines in scale locations, but they will simply bend/stretch out of the way of the yards and then spring back, the lines that do not interfere in a scale location will be the actual load bearing ones, and be the line I've been using all along.

Mineature tea chests are waiting on the pier. Thirsty Britons and Yanks are panting for their breakfast & afternoon iced drinks! Will no one in this Realm of Reality save us? Pleeese?

The clipper is sitting patiently on my shelf waiting for a re-mast and rigging. I have a 18" bipe, 18" Cub to finish, and a rocket propelled micro plane (probably a 10" span or so) to get built.

Reason we are poking is that this forum is in dire need of some sailing reports.. And you seem sooooo close

Keel, 2 servos, re-rig and mast due to my own OCD, and make the rudder and yes, I should be good to go. Problem is I have been gearing up for a few new products for my business catering to the micro flyers, so I have been spending a lot of my time over on that part of the forums; and the little planes are addicting.
