Endeavour 17 , Kayak in a lake ! ( 47 w.h.)

There is an excellent magazine, "Small Boats", which presents  several constructions of small boats.

Based on their own drawing , I built a small kayak, the Endeavour 17 in 1:8 scale.

The hull planked with mahogany. The length is 628 mm.

The cocpit coaming ( orange skirt ? ) , is made by polymer clay.

The imitation of water is made by resin.

In the next steps, I will apply two coats of varnish on KAYAK, I 'll place some bamboo reeds beside the tree . Finally I will apply a thin layer (1-2 mm )of transparent resin on the water.
