    Hokey smokes does she look pretty! And the chair for the Spindrift is just amazing- how was that made? was it 3D printed? or is it good old fashioned sculpt?

      The chair was cut out of an old piece of 2×4 on a bandsaw, following a template I had drawn and scaled in a CAD program. It was then rough carved and sanded. The arm rests are attached with bent nails and the base is turned from a scrap piece of Alumilite. The production version will be sculpted from sculpy and then a mold will be taken of the parts and cast in alumilite.

    Watching the videos on the K’tinga build and it’s looking great! I just wanted to mention that I’ve been using Plastikote brand of primer for many years now and I’ve fond it to be a very smooth application and easy to sand. It’s a high quality auto primer that takes any paint over it and I’ve even used it as the final color of certain models. It takes weathering very well and comes in a few different colors.
