Hi folks,

wanted to try the nice amigo design by xxdollarbillxx.
Made the fat one of the three but after a little shooting i think i slim the waist a little more like the other of the three amigos xxdollarbillxx designed. Think a slim waist is more comfortable for my small hands.

Here is the nice template by xxdollarbillx:

Very cool Bootsman. I agree with the slim waste theory. Very nice little frame good job.
Thanks buddy!
Done that...slimed the waist.
I printed the slim waist template and layed it on the frame.
Wanted to keep the fat bottom of the fat template but the waist of the slime waist template. Made car board templates of both to see what fits the best.
Ended up with a combination of both....so pretty much the fourth amigo :)

Had to modify the shape, too.
Still feels too bulky in my small hand nevertheless the slim waist i added.
After some shooting it does not feel comfy to hold.
So i reduced the forktip width from about 19mm to 15mm each and tried to smooth the curves from the fork to the middle section of the frame.
That's the problem when using a template another guy made. It's been made for his hand not your own. But anyway...now i think it fits my hand as best as possible. Won't be my famous frame but still a nice design xxdollarbillxx brought out.
