Default 95" Mystic Cat Wood

I own a CNC Router so I wanted something to try out.

Got these plans offline and edited them from ~50" to 95". I CNC cut the frames out of 1/4" plywood as a test before I move to the nicer wood. Sheeting is mostly designed and done for the bottom as well. Top is also designed but I messed up on the cut so I'll need to get more wood before the top piece is cut out. I am designing some drives that will reduce the overall cost of the boat as well.

Thanks guys. I'm hesitant on "selling" any because they are not my plans. I have edited and altered them but I don't know if I feel right making money off them. If anything, I would just charge for materials and the machine time.

This was my first big job cutting something on the CNC router so I assume it will only get better and quicker from here. Kinda teaching myself as I go. I'm scaling DOWN the plans for a guy for a FE boat to 30" so after him I will scale the originals to 60"ish and cut you a set Randy and Mart.

Alex the plans have been around for a few years now,i got them from a guy over in Argentina but his name escapes me he built a big one too not sure what size it was but it was big.Personally i wouldnt worry who drew the plans its based on the real thing and anything your doing is all your own work my friend.

Well, I cut a second set tonight and I will put those on to see if it sells. The CNC time adds up quickly between redesign and cutting. Now that I've got it scaled and redrawn, I can cut a few sets.

But yes, I will scale them back to 60" in the next couple weeks and let you guys know. Not that hard, but I have to adjust the main stringers to receive 6mm birch frames because when you scale the hull overall, the slots for the frames don't scale right. Anyway, give me a little bit and I promise I will be happy to help. Thanks for the interest.

Try already several times but no replay to my mails.
Looks like I will have to find another way to get the plans.

I reached out to Alex who responded immediately. Unfortunately he does not offer the big 95" Mystic cat any longer. He has some great looking kits though - might be worth a look (even though most are scale kits).

Was Alex F15pilot, the one that was doing the build thread, or is he someone else?

Alex advised me the following when I contacted him about the 95" Cat kit
"That 95" frame kit was an early one-off. I'll be honest, I didn't know what I was doing back in 2014. Simply scaling up plans does not work well so after the first one, the idea was scrapped. "

I didn't know what I was doing when I started either. Not wanting to date myself but that was back in 1982. That said, I see it now as a hobby that has you constantly learning. If you're not learning, you're doing something wrong

From the looks of his FB page he has things sorted for other designs. Nice stuff (be it scale and electric)
