About the model:
I searched for a cool Lego sailing yacht model. I found a few nice ones (including a cool Elan on a trailer) but not as playable and realistic as I wanted. I started designing in LDD, some of the curves & making the yacht look sleek was a tremendously challenging. Some other challenges were structural integrity & keeping the mast up. The biggest challenge was to cram all the details in a confined, curvy space. In the end, there needed to be some concessions to allow for integrity, detail & playability.
Thanks for your interest & support!!!
