It's really difficult to know just when I will have the "Combined"-type hurricane bow - the one suitable for The Shang - completed, Sean. It seems that (completely unexpected) delays continue to impact all my projects - and then too there is higher demand for the other types of hurricane bows, so the Combined Type is currently taking a backseat.
However, just the other day I thought of a potentially great solution for you - and service to me, as well:

But for you, Sean, this testbed prototype hull - unchanged otherwise, except for the keel being (more accurately) widened - would come already equipped with probably the most accurate Shangri-La bow ever put on this model; certainly more accurate than any I have seen on-line, anyway - could be an ideal solution!
So, what I propose is for you and I to SWAP HULLS - your OOB hull for this testbed hull, at right, above - which I can additionally prep, while waiting for your hull to arrive. This is a great deal, for both of us - especially you!
