      Not having any experience, I am hoping some of you could chime in and let me know if this looks develop-able to you? The 3D model is all kinds of bright green, but the unfolded plates have a little discoloration and I’m not sure what to do about it. Many thanks!

      There seems to be a tiny amount of stress, but nothing I would worry about personally.
      However if you’re in doubt try to build the model on scale first, using cardboard for example. The larger the scale the more reliable the results.

      Thanks for that. To me it looked like it should move into place with a little pressure, especially since I’m working with small boats and thin plate. The red numbers just gave me pause as they were red 🙂

      On a separate note, I mails sales@ and info@ about the tank extension – is that the correct route to find out pricing?

      I always made my hulls until they were green in the stress boxes. What tolerances are safe to build form as it seems i am out a little bit?

      of course that is the best way. As. far as the tolerated stress is concerned, there are no specific good or bad values and even these are material dependent. Wood is much more forgiving than steel for example.
