The portholes look good. I just acquired the Model shipways "Skipjack Willie E Bennett". Going to build it....again. "Again", because I had one @ 95% completed when water dripped on it and it was ruined.It’s LOM. No yard arm/square sails. I’m a novice when it come to sailing but anything that floats or fly’s has fascinated me since I was young.
Portals complete on forward cabin. I thought about cutting out the deck under the cabin and makeshift a modest interior. But, will try to keep this short build simple. We shall see, still undecided.
Are a Main and jib in the coming work? Furled or full up for sailing? Nice clean work on this skip jack. RichThe portholes look good. I just acquired the Model shipways "Skipjack Willie E Bennett".

You have some computer skills that I don't have to copy and past the image to scale and then mirror it around. Younger minds and abilities are the future while my old school hands and eyes do what they can to improvise. Nicely done. RichThe flip side was a little tricky. transposed the entire image. Then transposed the lettering so it was not backwards, then cleaned up the colors in Procreate.
Will have more photos this weekend. OOD will be on a girlfriend vacation starting Thursday and not back till Sunday. Workshop time!!
My posted photo is a fib as that was some years ago. I have a couple of more decades under my bow than you. Back in the service '63 - 67 I was using computers that the civilians didn't know existed. It was decades later that I learned CAD for architectural work but that was before 3-D was out there and when it was my use was pretty limited for what we then needed for our design and construction documents. Primarily just an extension of drafting board work. Oh yes. . . I'll be 8 decades before the winter comes around again if COVID doesn't scuttle my cruise before then.Rich, thanks. I think we’re about the same age...
I have an Artesania Latina San Francisco II build going, the build log is here:Thanks Christy,
just finishing the sails which I changed up a bit. Used thin cotton tight weave material and rolled on acrylic white. Will post pictures at some point.
Are you building anything presently?
