Yikes, that is some wood for the start. I'll bet there will be many more sheets of wood also. Different thicknesses too. I guess it will need some bank account for all of it. These plans are the best I have seen. This is going to be some darn good build.

Bart,

that is some very good CAD work, and i'm impressed by your 'skellington' approach to the hull bottom. very reminiscent of the full size, yet distinctivly ivan (and quick to build by the looks of it)
I'll be watching this like a hawk

Very nice! Now that RBC has cut one already, any chance for a short kit once it flies as well as it looks?

I like the way you've designed the nose so that a large nose block is not needed. That saves a lot of carving!

Who made the razor plane in your tool set?

Beautiful. That hull looks so nice. What a nice set of tools to break in also. I will mention that I hope you have considered some "Limber Holes" along the keel for water to pass through. If water traps behind each former it will cause a load of glue line damage and swelling if it does not dry out fast because of puddles. Just a thought to consider.

@ GeoffinIN , the razor plane comes from Robbe. Some nose carvin needs to be done.

@ Neons great tip on the formers. Maybe it is an idea to give the inside of the hull some kind of treating.

Here are some pictures of the nose , without glue

Hi Bart,

as I build my waterplane models also from wood (you have seen me in the german waterplane forum), I only can recommend waterproofing the whole wood structure with 2 coats dope/filler. I use this:

Hey Kuni ,

Thanks lot for that tip , i wonder how much weight this treatment would add to the balsa structure.

Cheers,

Bart

Hi Bart,

not that much. But having a waterproof hull/fuselage is worth that gramms. I treat the whole airfram with that stuff, means the inside of wings, tail group etc.
You never know when the model has a "less than perfect" take-off or approach, and sometimes, when all goes wrong, some needs to pour water out of the wing...

Kuni

your progress assembling your CNC cut parts is quite staggering...

you have "shamed" me into it...

my scratch built Sunderland is back on the building board..

there is no way your Solent will be finished before my Sunderland it has sat there 90% finished with all running gear and systems working...and un-touched for about 6 months

i hope the weather is awfull here in the UK for the next couple of weekends

David
