...so the instructions i've found for working up a half model have all started with gluing up a sandwich of 'lifts'. To me, the method doesn't make sense for a hard chined boat, especially where the chine follows the sweep of the sheer and would cross over lines set parallel to the water.
Does anyone know if there is a different way of half modelling boats with hard chines? Or maybe no-one bothers?
( mostly i wanted a model to help me see how wide my garboard plank would have to be, how much planking stock i would need, etc.)
ps please god i don't want to have to wrestle with learning any hull design software
