Hi from France
« on: September 07, 2022, 03:05:27 AM »
Hi,
I'm not a "real" glastron owner, but a french rc model boater.
I'm actually working on a glastron gt150 which will be mostly 3d printed (a few shots of actual progress are attached).
Finding good reference images or blueprints is quite a challenge, somewhat harder than modelling the stuff by itself  ;D , so most of this stuff is a mix between images and eyeballing.
I found many good infos on this forum, that's why I'm joining.

Welcome to the forum nwalker !
There's a guy on some of the Facebook Glastron groups that has made a few GT150 models.
Can't remember his name, but he has responded to inquires in the below group ..

Try " Classic Glastron Owners " group.

Thanks!
The guy is named Bruce Holyoake and the page is here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/767929710081022
While his work is quite good, we are using same measure tool, the almighty eyeball meter, and will release my stuff as opensource: I would not be proud of myself if he give me his meshes so I can release his work for free, so, as I can make my own model, chosing what to do is somewhat easy;p
