My excitement is building!  I managed to locate a set of measured drawings for the I-25 Submarine.  Now if I can figure out how to translate the tif file into a scale paper plan - then I'll have a blueprint.  Unfortunately a 2 meter paper plan is beyond the ability of my printer, or my small brain.

Find yourself a print shop Wink
As for brain power: you'll be fine!
A big enough bit of wood and enough whittling time you'll be grand!

A superb bit of old school model making. My Father would have appreciated it. Very well done.

You must have the patience of an angel to whittle those blocks of wood! That looks amazing! Shocked

Edit:how do you lose the wood grain on the block of timber? Does it not show up when painting?

No whittling involved,  just different sandpaper blocks and files.  I use a caliper to get the thickness' correct.  Basswood is preferred for carving.  It is similar to fir in strength and softness but has almost no wood grain - so with a 220 grit paper final sanding the surface is like satin.  Before painting I'll use automotive "sandable" filling primer which will hide any last surface flaws.

Main parts are done with exception of the propeller, wing flaps and pontoon support:



Carving 18 wood rocker arm "knuckles" on the cowling proved tedious but turned out  good enough IMO:

Beautiful.  My father taught woodworking for 30 years, and this would make him proud.
