 :-)) {-) {-) {-)

More frames built today .... two fixed on the keel the others glued together or ready to be glued.
I used 2 plywood board 1000x400x6.5mm sofar. 24 frames (x2 each is double) 48 frames with 0.8m2 plywood is a very good result. I bought 5 boards and I might end up with 1 board left over.

Those frames at the stern are a touch of class with the curves up to the center over the prop.

Thanks a lot my friend!!!!  :-)) :-))
You can really see how the hull takes shape and how it may look at the end! I just love my method of building a hull.

Today I tried to find out if the bow is in the right shape. Looks OK sofar but I have to do further checks and tryouts till I will glue in the frames.



Todays work (4 frames) viewed from the inside.

I just love these DIY Lego sets you can download from the internet. Sadly the parts are way too expensive ....

The biggest frames are glued in .... only a few left to make.



To check the shape of the hull I made a cardboard "deck". Everything looks allright sofar. A few frames are not exactly aligned but they are flexible enough that I can push or pull them to get them to the right place.







I will made a plywood deck and fix it to the hull temporarly. So I can finish each frame to the exact length and fix it with a small screw. So the hull will stay in form when I add the planks. Hope it works out as planned.

Here a picture from a fishtrawler with a wooden hull. The frames are massive and have the same spacing as I use (width of a frame).

Picture: Chantier Naval Bernard



I controll the shape of the hull all the time before I glue the frame. So you will not have nasty surpises when all the frames are glued in and he shape is wrong.



Thats the plywood "deck" I was speaking about. Each frame will be screwed to it. It will stabilize the hull till the planking is done.



Frames #38-40 are glued in. #40 will be done next week maybe even a #41&42 ....
As said before .... this week the frames will be finished.

Yes, as you say the spacing of the frames and planking being almost equal, makes for a very strong robust joint connection, thereby "locking" it all together.

Good choice of subject.  :-)) :-)) :-))

Really looking impressive now. 2.8 Kg? think you might be launching then fitting the batteries. Still a brilliant model

Thanks a lot to you all!!!!!

I was out for a while with some strange cough and fever .... and then my Jeep needed some TLC to get the daylights running again. But now I am back again.
I also found a new job! After over 15 months finally a small company was interested in my work knowledge and languages (french, english, german, italian). So from mid october on I wont have that much time to build model ships as before. But working part time leaves me with monday as my day to build my model ships.

Back to model building. I noticed that the right and left side of the frames where not exactly the same length. I do not know wherre the mistake came from but I had to correct it.
Best solution was to cut down the frames on the right side. I did that with my brand new Proxxon jigsaw.



Now its fits and looks much better! The front frames will be shortened later.



The deck is on again and serves as second workplace!!!.
