Is it based on the drawings made by Gérard Delacroix?

Ahoy!

@Uwek and OTHERS

The small explanation.

The design of the 3D Dredger Machine is over 10 years old and based on the drawings made by Gérard Delacroix.
I used this material to learn Rhinoceros software.

Some time ago, DON (donfar) request me to perform for him several elements: the skeleton of the dredger, the skeleton of the boat and two wheels.

DON WROTE ......... BASED ON ANCRE PLANS AND MONOGRAPH ORDERED BY ME FOR SPECIFIC PARTS THAT I CAN NOT DO, TO AGE AND PHYSICAL CONDITION, ALL CNC, IN PEAR WOOD WITH JIG..............................................................

I wrote the codes and cut it on a CNC milling machine for Don. THIS IS DON MODEL. I just a little helped him. That's all.

Material: solid Pear Wood (NOT PLYWOOD). Elements cut with a CNC milling machine (NOT LASER) without burning the edges. Perfect solution for POF models. It is enough to lightly sand the place of fastenings and the edges of the frames.

And JIG for DON

This is looking very good and will help Don (and others) very much - Good to know, that you are very flexibel and can prepare and produce such elements.
Especially things like a such jig are helping beginners in scratch modeling extremely..... Many Thanks for the detailed explanations and the introduction of this order from Don. Good idea Don !
