13′ 6″ Canoe Chandelier

Coming along. An expanded version of the smaller canoe model kits.

Very pleased with how strong and lightweight it is! Light deck is ready to be installed. I have always said that building the models was just like building the real thing, but this is the real thing. A lot of fun. If you build one of the model kits, then you’d be well versed in building a full size one.

Light deck cross members dropped in place. Strong longitudinals. Hanging the canoe by four eye bolts instead of two. Will have six LED Flat panels and painted green.

Started 13′ Canoe Chandelier

Same forms as the 96″ canoe but expanded.

Building a strong back and a way to support it is a little more involved than one of the smaller kits, but is all the same. If you build one of the smaller kits, then you should have no problem building a full sized one. This canoe will be going to PA for a commercial real estate conference room.

Sebastian Roberson’s 54″

Sebastian sent in these pictures showing his 54″ canoe coming together. He sanded a bit to much and sanded through the edge of a wood strip. This happens, but is easily fixed by carefully cutting out the damaged strip and gluing in a new one. Sebastian will be sending in a revised photo soon. Thanks for the photos!

Sebastian is working on his canoe outside using a portable set up. This is an excellent way to do it. Enjoy the outdoors and don’t worry about any mess.

Lobster boat model kit!

Have been pushing to get this out there and ready. It will be RC controlled. 40″ long finished. Built just like the canoes. Strip construction, forms and a strongback. Simple to build, strong, epoxy and cloth so it is waterproof. More pictures coming. Let me know if you’re interested in being the first to build it.
