Well it's not specifically about "Canterbury" J's, but I thought this was a REALLY impressive picture of a real J-Class.

Somewhere I read the Canterbury J is based on the J-Class "Ranger" design. This nice picture of the replica "Ranger" came up on my Facebook....thought I would share. Apparently the "Ranger" replica is for sale........for a cool $20mil. http://www.jclassyachts.com/ranger/R...s%20&%20pp.pdf

Who'll be the first on here to make an offer?

At long last, here (I hope) are some pics of the boat so far. It may not show, but the waterline and cove strip are maroon, as on the replica Ranger.

That looks REALLY nice Richard. Are you going to have two hatch covers.....one flat and one with the scale deckhouse?

jankraak
Is that a sailing model or just display? Very impressive, even down to the "park avenue" boom!!!

Tis model of the Rainbow is a sailing model.
The lenght is 2 meter and a spar is 2.65meter.
The sail will be made of the orginal material ( North sails 3DLI)
On my site: http://kraakmodelbouw.com/index2.html
you can see the orginal pictures of the Rainbow and you can follow the building of my model.
I try to post there all the progress. This month I am going further with my model , so it will be sail this summer.
I was also with the regatta in Falmouth with the orginal J''s.
My model was there in the museum.

Jankraak, I am curious. Did you deepen the keel by 2 inches as is done with the AMYA J class models ?

Yes the model is deept about 2 inches, but you can''t see it, because the new "Rainbow" has also a deeper keel.

jankraak,

I just viewed the pictures of the "Rainbow" build, I must say you are an exceptional craftsman.

Kevin,
Yes, the plan is to have a "racing" hatch and a decorative one. Since the model presently lives on the dining room table (with enthusiastic permission), it will need a bit of animation: but that will be a separate project.

I am presently wrestling with the deck fittings. I don't like the "racks" and after some analysis (and CaptBit remarks) have concluded they are not really necessary and point attachments will suffice. The mast will have some for'n aft adjustment; the shrouds will have three points each side and the jib three as well - almost like the Soling 1M. Until there are enough boats to establish a strong racing program, I'll delay dealing with those (serious) details.

I do however have another question(s).... What seems to be the best position for the jib: 1. distance between the main and jib; and 2. position of the jib boom attachment point; and 3. jib boom extension, beyond the clew and the counter balance weight ???

Richard
ps Isn't Jan's model spectacular - but did you notice the tools he has in his shop
- I wish. Ciao.
