Today I copied the first 5 frames .... first on thin paper (the one with the mm lines) and the on thick Photopaper. I worked exactly as it will pay off in the future.



5 pieces ready .... there are 10 frames drawn on the plan .... you can guess it? Yes I will be adding some more .... 27 in total .... 3 between each other frame!

Thanks a lot my friends!!!!  :-)) :-)) :-))

This time I will fix the keel to the working piece of table top. I also doublechecked the right angle of it.



Then it was time to glue the stern part to the keel.



I made a picture of the "old" hull and the keel of the new one. The new one is very big!!!!



This time I used metalangles which where screwed into the tabletop. I also used a M3 screw to fix the stern securely.



The stern is also fixed with a M3 screw. I can unscrew to front and the back screw and lift the keel from the tabletop.





I used leftover cheap plywood to quickly make one frame. Just for the fun of it!!! The frame is around 30cm wide ....



Overall view of today work ....

I have no idea for the motor .... I like smaller but geared motors. The Loredana has a Krick MAX GEAR motor (540) with 6:1 reduction. Makes some 2200rpm (Original has a top rpm of 1800rpm) which resulted in a very realistic "ride" on the lake.

https://www.racingmodellbau.ch/schiffsmodellbau/antriebe-und-zubehor/max-gear-getriebemotor-6-1

I think for this bigger trawler I need a bigger motor with a strudy gearbox. Propsize is 80mm (same as Loredana). Weight should be around 30kg.

About 45% of all English words have a French origin... so they're, technically, only half deviating from the English language  ok2

Sorry I couldn't resist and write in french .... I grew up in a bilingual family ... swiss-german and french!
I just wrote "Thank you very much for the useful link. I will everything concerning this model asap!"

First frame is glued in! The cutout was made slighty smaller that neccessary and with the help of my trusty little flat file I got a 100% exact fit. The plywood in aircraft quality is just the best one I ever had .... sawing, filing etc goes really good and its much more sturdy than the usual cheaper one from my DIY store. Its expensive .... 4 pcs. 1000x500x5mm sheets cost me 200 CHF ...







As you may think I will add a second frame to the first one to have a thickness of 10mm/frame. But it will reach only to the deck.

The second stern-frame ist glued in...



The axle for the rudder is drilled .... took some time to get the angles and position right with my proxxon drill....





The spacers between the frame are glued in .... this method is more accurate than to make the openings into the keel.

I hope there is enough space for a propchange without taking off the rudder .... %)



The frames a re made in sektions like I did on the first hull. It is essential to work exactly and tidy.





... and glued to the keel.



Here I glued in the shaft bearing with UHU metal glue. The last time I did solder the two parts together ....



... and the next frame is glued in place. In between there will be another 3 frames I still have to build. As the frames are 10mm thick I choose to have some more spacing between them.

Thanks a lot!!!  :-))

Here frame #3 and on the plywood the parts for 2x frame #3!!! Incredible how much wood is saved by using this method!!!



Here all the parts for frame #3 ...



The propshaft needs some space ....



Spant #3 glued in. To the right you can see my selfmade control system. With it I can check if every thing has the right height etc ....



Before I can proceed with frame #4 I must write down some measurements from the original plan. Without them I may and up with a funny looking new hull ....

Ahah......this gap is much smaller  :-)) than the Draftsperson {-) drew in the Plan..............

Also we see a stainless steel ZZ shielded ball bearing for the inboard end of your prop shaft stern bearing gland :-))......do you have a similar but smaller similar bearing for the outboard end?

Yes you're right about the spacing below the prop. I moved the hole thing a few mm down to have an even space after planking. Planks will be 5mm thick. I had a big problem with the Loredana where I forgot the thickness of the planks and in the end the prop was way to high.

The outboard end is a simple Delrin bearing .... its a normal shaft from Raboesch ....

I wasn't happy with frame #2 sitting to high on the keel .... after a few thoughts I took it out and reglued it in some 10mm lower. Cutting it in half and adding a new part in the middle and secured it with 4 screws. After planking I can take out the screws.



Todays morning work .....





In the afternoon I glued in #4 and started to copy the remaining frames on fotopaper.



I have to admit the only a few measurement are exactly the same as on the plan .... they are totally different .... example: Waterline 194mm above ground .... actually its 230mm on my hull. And I took all measurements from the 1/15 plan ..... :-X

I think I did rather good with the keel and frames .... 3 more to be glued in and then we start the serious framemaking!!!!

Skipper controls yesterdays work!



Skipper watches carfully if everything is in line with frame #7.



At the end of the day I copied the remaining 3 frames (6 frames in total) on this small piece of plywood.
I used 0.5 square meter plywood sofar. I hope the remaining 1.5 square meters are enough for the 27 frames that are missing ....
