95" Mystic Cat Wood
 
13 Attachment(s)
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.

Cool ............ so seeing as you scaled this up from 55" - can you scale it down to 60" - 65" and cut me out one ?? That's cool but darn big

Lol just pulling your chain buddy,but that said im thinking Alex might get a lot of interest in one of these kits in a smaller size lol.

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.

Thanks Alex - just looking for a winter project and 60" (or so) is about max for me -- I have a small shop I play with toy boats in

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.

Are you still selling 60"

hi
i'm working on a similar project, an xxxl v-hull, based on a mystic design. I was hoping i could pick-your brain about yours
thanks

Jsmeberg 01-27-2021 10:43 AM

Looks fantastic, wish I had your cnc router setup!

lordz1978 01-27-2021 05:23 PM

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

Try Alex here - Looks active - https://www.facebook.com/barracudaRCBoats/timeline

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).

Hydro Junkie 02-04-2021 08:01 PM

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. "

Hydro Junkie 02-05-2021 03:07 PM

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 ;)

Justaddwata 02-06-2021 07:39 PM

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