Hm, Definitly time to give your saw a bit of tlc as it will be much costlier to replace than the blades  %%

I think you need to find a scale replica of the shipwright in the documentary weilding an adze! That really impressed me seeing traditional tools as well as modern ones used to build the new bow.

Your progress looks fab as per usual Danielle.

Thanks a lot for the link .... they have fishboxes but in 1/14 scale .... I'll make them by myself ....

The bandsaw is working again. There was not enough tension!!! I must get the tensioner working properly again in the next few days.

.... the end is near!!!!

Frame #C8B was made in the hull itself .... only the lower hull fitted as I wanted .... the rest was made on situ!



At the stern there are frames #C2A-C missing ... here I made the wooden templates. frame #C2C has a funny shape as it has to go under the propshaft ....



End of the day picture .... I started the new hull on January 16th 2018 .... I must say my work improved a lot and I was as quick as the last time but the result is much better!!!!! There are some kinks visible but they will dissapear when I fit the first two rows of planks on where the deck ends ....

Nearly finished at the bow! 2-3 Frames will be done later ....



At the propshaft the frames are ready to be glued together. One frame can be put on place by going under the propshaft ....

Thanks a lot Gary ... :-))

The planks are 15x5mm pinewood. I some tryouts with putting a plank a short time into water to get it to flex around the bow. It works very well. I know I could do it with putting the planks into steam but I have no space to have such an arrangement in my workshop.

Thanks just interested in what timbers other people are using good timber out here is  getting hard to find or if you can find a full size boating timber yard its very expensive.
On another point can you tell me of any model boat clubs  in France & Germany as we will over there in August on holidays also doing a 7 day rail tour of Switzerland
after the rail trip we are hiring a car and touring around for 18 days would be interested in your comments as to any places worth visiting

Gary, I do not know any model boat clubs in Germany or France. There are a few in Switzerland and some model boat shows. What time of the year will you visit Switzerland? Better we discuss that in another topic or by private message ....

Today I made this little tool to mark things on the hull. Its only to mark things and not to check if things are square and level .... base is from my wooden figurine and the rest out of my storage ....

Clever tool, you'll be able to mark waterlines and things when you are ready Danielle.

You're right ... its a clever helping tool for the waterline (fixture for a pen will be made later). I have different selfmade helping gadgets at hand ....

Today with the help of two leftover ABS profiles I marked the upper end of the hull where the deck will be. Looks alright to me (Anita my wife said its OK too) next week I have to copy the markings to the other side .... and the I can start sanding the frames to the right shape.
