F-32 Hand carved scale model

Post by DAVIDLOFLAND » Sun Nov 03, 2019 8:47 pm

Good day all,

I'm spending several months in Laos this year and have discovered some really exceptional local wood carvers.

Intentions are to commission one to carve a likeness of my F32. I have tons of images and even a couple of line drawings, but nothing that gives a good depiction of the hull shape below the waterline. Does anybody have such drawings or images in their library?

Depending on how the finished product turns out, what it costs to produce and the shipping costs back to the states, I may attempt a small business venture of custom carved scale models. We'll see.

Thanks for checking for below waterline images or drawings?

These are the only 'line drawings' I've ever seen, taken from an older Power Boat guide.

Does anyone know if any other drawings exist?

Thanks,
Dave

Thank you for asking Bob about more line drawings.

Yes, F32's are trending in Whittier, Alaska right now.
