I'm quite pleased with this new frame design. We've upgraded the number of frames from the previous design, added enough parts to make two deck houses, if one were so inclined, and produced a paper deck template to help position blocks and winches.

Next on the list of boats to design is Ranger 77-B (Cheveyo), also in 1/16 scale.

Here we have a new product from Modeller's Workshop. This is a grating system designed for the cockpit and hatches of a 1/5 scale R/C sailboat. This particular grating uses 1/8" slats with 1/4" spacing.

The strips are 24 inches long and are available in packages of forty. They are $140USD, plus shipping, per package.

We are quite excited about this new product as the fit is very precise and the finished, varnished, product looks wonderful.

Best Regards,

I'm very excited to be joining RCGroups. What a wonderful site, full of most interesting information.

I have joined the site because I recently took over the development of laser cut frames for R/C boats from Milton Thrasher, from Florida, who had spent the last ten years collecting and selling laser-cut parts.

I'm going further with this project by designing new ships myself using the most advanced CAD surface techniques so I can simulate shapes in 3D well before cutting. In essence, I am designing scale models using similar techniques designers use to build the real thing.

I am most interested in using my 3D skills to make parts using current manufacturing techniques such as laser-cutting, CNC routing, milling, and photo-chemical manufacturing.

Of course, we shouldn't forget the surprising advances in 3D printing.

I look forward to posting articles about the projects I am working on.
