Solution for disappearing mesh in Godot

I am now using shaders in Godot to model the early version sails in Square Rigger. I noticed that when rendering the main scene, the mesh disappears when viewed from behind. According to this is because back facing polygons are culled. Add [...]

This is new territory for me and in addition, I'm terrible at maths. I'm also starting to get a development workflow going and have discovered how to disable lights in isolated [...]

So far I am very impressed with the results and will be doing some basic hull modelling and tweaking of [...]
