Default Star 45

I just got done tracking the former's (no keel, or rudder) for the Star 45 in Autocad.
I can export them as a DXF file too.

I made them symmetrical by drawing half the former and then mirroring it over. I still need to align the former's and see how they look.

If anyone is interested.

Hi Bruferrit,

Looks great! If interested, the DWG files for the Star 45 are already available online at the Star 45 Yahoo! Groups page. I'm pretty sure you can find them elsewhere too. John Fisher created them a number of years ago, and has put them out in the public. You can also already purchase laser cut frames for the Star 45 from Stevens Aeromodel. They use the files from John too.

In addition, if interested, a few years ago I wrote a 100 page construction manual on how to build the Star 45. It has the very creative name of "The Star 45 Construction Manual"! It's available for purchase in either print or PDF formats. See my blog at www.rcmodelyachts.com for more information. Or go to my old Star 45 blog too, at http://star45rcsailboat.blogspot.com/. I don't use that blog much anymore, as I've moved on to trying to resurrect some old Vintage Marblehead designs. Just finished 3D modeling the Sun Wind.

The Star 45 is a great boat! Good luck on your build.
