Our team has scanned the Edwin Fox in Picton during December and is busy creating a digital 3d model of the vessel as is. We will also later do a full digital reconstruction to her original state.
The Fox is a very important part of our history and is at risk of being damaged by natural disaster.
We have invested around 10k$ and 500 man hours already in this project and require further funding to complete.We will shortly be starting a Kickstart fundraising campaign (details here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/217163910/1692328012?token=9a118a35)
