    Default Design Levi Dart 38

    Hello all,

    A few days ago I saw an image of a boat that fascinated me, it is not really a wooden boat, it is more fiber, the boat is called Levi Dart 38. I decided that I had to design it for a possible model, who knows. The information available is very little, after much research and reading I will follow the information I found. I know the length, I know two more measures step and beam. As for the rest it will be by approximation, drawing a lot of lines and then adjusting until it makes sense or proportionate, it will be fun.
    I already have some lines, still need more adjustments and alignment.

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Surely seeking to collaborate or share is not messing with AKA changing his design?

    Hello all,

    Work in progress, now with the initial surfaces, all the model need more work, a lot of work, that included straight the crooked lines redo new surfaces and so on. I think I am in the good way.

    Hello all,

    Some progress the lines are in the position that I want but need more work because the surfaces are not quite fluid.

    Hello all,

    I have been working to adjust and refine the lines. I work in a full size model. The need to move a line sometimes is very small, here is the proof.

    Hello all,

    First lines of the spray rail have a lot of work needed to do. The lines between the hull and starboard are done and straight.
