1/72 SSN 571 Nautilus build

Here are some CAD snapshots of the up and coming 1/72 Nautilus SSN 571
It will be modeled after the as launched nautilus.
The difficulty with this boat has been that all plans disagree about the size and shape of the stantions. It has taken a lot of work to get the whole thing to fall together. Once again the CAD was not done by myself. I hired Precision Pattern to do all of my CAD and machine work for this project and the results so far have been amazing.
Here are a couple sail shots.

Kevin

The bow is complete! Nearly ready to machine this hull as well. Just need some finishing touches like the anchor well and such.

The anchor well has been laid in now. Just need to get the bow planes done and the whole thing will be ready for precision machining. Of course these snow storms are not helping the process.

I have a couple other neat things in the works I will share later.
