This model boat presents a 1938 designed pleasure craft, built for a late, local medical officer, Dr. Laukka.
The builder of the original craft is unknown.
The design of the original craft is by my model maker friend's late father, Mr. Kalari.
The boat is intended to be sailed on local scale boat contests, run under NAVIGA rulebook, Section NS, Class F2-B.
Construction is wood/fibreglass composite: Frameless pine ( Pinus Sylvestris ) planking stained and covered with thin glass cloth and clear laminating epoxy, inside and out. Final finish will be clear varnish. Light steam-bent frames may be added where visible during interior build.
Since this will be a functional model, not static, water proofing of all structures and finishes is necessary.
My build log is kept and shared in Facebook. Below is the link to my build log.
Subtitles are in Finnish and English, and you can see them by clicking the pictures.
