I am seriously considering moving forward with this project and have done enough preliminary work to see that it will be viable.
The photos that folks have posted are greatly appreciated and will assist me in getting started, however I am a bit leary of basing final drawings on just photos due to possible distortion.
Question for folks who have the kit: is it reasonable to make the PE deck cover "only" wood deck equivalent? I.e. use the kit supplied fore and aft deck sections that represent the all metal parts of the deck.
Also, what is the level of interest in possibly producing other details (as in addition to the main and conning tower decks)? Things like antennas, saddle tank access panels, conning tower access doors, etc.? This would need to be traded off against how long it would take to get this project finished.
Last question: if anyone is intending to) or knows someone who is) planning on making PE decks for this kit, I would greatly appreciate hearing about it now before I invest a large amount of time and money into the project. I do not wish to be surprised after the fact as I was with the recent announcement (by safrole) of a competing product in what is really a limited market.
