I'm hoping to use a modificaton of the KSS system of derek kelsal
using polyprop honeycomb. I have made a couple of 1:20 models in
cardboard-of a Harry using the half hull technique and managed
something pretty close to the design as I remember it so it seems
plausible. Rob is playing with polyprop at the moment and he and Mark
should have some idea of the practicality of the idea, though I don't
know how keen he is about once again having to modify the designs to
be able to use the technique and i am not sure of the ethics of not
slinging a few dollars dereks way for his intellectual effort.
Possibly going to one of his workshops would be a good idea.
