OK....here  we go /2.......

Here is the text for the posting from Danielle............

TEXT:
Today I made a guide form my bandsaw…. Cutting the plank with a smaller guide … the results where terrible.
Pic5
And more planks done to left and right side ….
Pic6
As the planks are not all the same thickness the hull looks a little bit funy …. I think I planked half of the hull.
Pic7
I have planty of time at the moment to work on my model.
My new job turned out to be a nightmare so I decided to get fired again after 2 months working there.

Derek,

Keep up the good work and you'll most likely be in the running for duel dual Swiss citizenship  %) %)

Seriously the photo problems are a bummer for all threads.

Mike

Could be disputed here, what about Umi (Aimee)?? although it could be argued that UMi is a professional builder :}

Your build is coming on nicely missy, I wouldn't bother too much about the planking, most planked ships you see have a few that don't lay completely flat. A bit of sanding will take care of it.

I thought about that when I posted and made the reply based on the fact that I believed Umi had a business in modelling, anyway what the hell - they are both great modellers !!  O0 :}


Merry Xmas one and all   :-))

Ps if anyone noticed the different title on my post, it’s because my iPad refused to use to find my original name.

So Brian60 says......

'I wouldn't bother too much about the planking, most planked ships you see have a few that don't lay completely flat'

I do agree here Danielle..... maybe time to take a rest & have a few glasses of Schnapps & think about the final external surface of the planked hull

Will it be simply painted just like real ships that show the planking lines?, or bogged up with filler and externally fibre glassed?....

I understand your preference for an authentic planked look ....so why not try & understand the whole concept

So for water tight integrity, most employ the glass + resin, although this can be applied internally & leave the externals to be varnished or painted

Some could rightly suggest this manner will leave the external planking subject to mechanical or impact damage in the water, and yes this is so......if or when it happens you follow the same procedure as real vessels and put the model on the slips and correct the damage

In the 4th Century BC, the Chinese painted the undersides and some externals and the internals of their wooden vessels  with TUNG Oil...then after a drying period painted some externals with bright colours

TUNG Oil is commercially available in 1 litre tins for about $54.00........all just food for thought  %)............Derek

No....one day, [our dear Lord prevailing] I will build another wooden planked open decked paddle vessel similar to the image.....she will be approx. 1600 mm long with a displacement of some 12 kg......

Yes, painted and protected with Feast Watson TUNG Oil internally and externally & Feast Watson Proof Tint Stain & Feast Watson Wax externals %)

Every rough sawn horizontal plank with the vertical uprights and bronze headed nail will be visible O0 ........same will apply to the deck railings...oh I got the price wrong.......today Bunnings have the 1litre tin for $38.50 

[sorry to HOG your thread Danielle, however the more I read about TUNG Oil......the more I like it]

Hi Derek, Bunnings have opened up over here, they bought the old Homebase chain, like B&Q, will pop in and see if they stock this stuff, though they are still going through the change over, new stores are Bunnings old ones are having a sale in the new year then changing when the homebase products have sold out

Just love the idea of a open deck paddle steamer with tungoiled wood .... I will order some tung oil to make the internals of my model waterthight. I think it will look nicer than using grey color as I did before.

Seems the forum is working again! :-))
I did not do any work over christmas break. I needed a break.
Now for the new year I should first finish the N. Loredana. Just the trawldoors have to be made and then I can deliver it.
We had some schnaps to celebrate but not too much...  ok2

Here I am again!!!!
After thinking about for a longe time .... I decided to rebuild the hull!
But not this one but a different one which is nice in my eyes.
I bought all plans for trawler from brittany off the internet. So I could choose which one I wanted to use.

The ship will be in 1/10 scale and 135cm long and 48cm wide. I think its on the big side but it will have a lot of room for gadgets!!!!!
Not shure about the shape of the wheelhouse .... We'll see later.
I will use a lot of frames and a lot of nails!!!!



I started to draw the keel which is in 1/15 scale on the drawing.



I will use the same tread as it will have the same name ....
