I can only imagine what you and your workspace looked like after this sanding spree  %%

Yesssss....!  :D :D :D :D :D
I dont know how many nails I hammered in .... must be more than 1000 per side ....Actually I used a lot of painters tape to make the tool better adapted to my tired hands and fingers .... one half of the hull done .... another one to go!



I used a lot of wood putty on this hull .... only to sand down 95% .... creating a lot of dust for nothing!



Hull is sanded .... the 4-5mm thick planks allows me to sand down a lot of material should the shape be a little bit crooky .... ready for the primer (Spraycan paint).




1/2 of the hull primed the first time .... sandind priming .... etc ....  %) I will use this color of prmer for all parts of the ship. This will keep the colors similar on the whole ship.



Next week ... back to the other side .... new week same sh..... ahem work. ok2

Finally the hull is ready for painting .... the sanding of it was really nasty dusty work .... my workspace is covered in sticky dust....



The hull was painted with the grey primer color.





Then I will finish the back of the hull and the color on the inside.

Thanks a lot!!!!!!  :-)) :-)) :-)) :kiss:
Finished painting twice the inside of the hull.



This wooden plantholder was found by my wife. I used over 60 screws to get it sturdy enough for the weight of the model. I also added wheels to it.



Checking clearances on the way to the elevator and/or the garage.



.... not much space left in the elevator!!!! max. 10-15cm!!!



.... the Cornelia Marie (or the N. Loredana) could park in the hull of the Mady-Jeanne!



Loverly shape it has .... I will add the last 6cm of planking in the next weeks. Then we'll see how she looks!

You should be very proud of yourself for making such a lovely hull. I’m looking forward to the rest of the build  :-))

Despite being a little tubbalub (  ok2 ) Mady Jean is quite compact. You would not get any warship over a destroyer in the elevator and the stand you and your wife have created would not be as practical either. That was a great idea putting the stand on wheels.

 :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) Thanks a lot my friends!!!!!  ;)
I wasn¨t happy with the stern so I decided to get it done right. Adding the uprights would be nice isn't it?



But first I had to correct the radius of the part.



I cut out everything with the help of my trusty Proxxon with a flexible attachment tool and a cutting disc for tiles. Works well and the cut is easely done if you hold the thing very good in your hands....I also used a big file.



In the end it looked like that ....



Then it was time to glue a second layer of plywood to it ... just like I did with the frames. (no pic).

Planking the stern was a quick job!



First I had only 5 upgrights and I did not like it this way .... I added 4 more and it looks much better.



It will be visible in the end so it was important for me to get it right. I also have to sand everything in shape or it will look silly ....

Looks pretty good to me. You could have added thin false supports from ply but it would have looked like a Bankers house in Surbiton!

You're right! I could have made it a little bit thinner but this part has to be sturdy. Because from time to time the hull is resting upright on the stern ... must be over 10kg now and taking more weight every week.

More work done today .... uprights for the hull. Don't know the name of the part ...bulwark? First I made a template. So all parts wil be the same size.



The white profiles are cut by myself from a bigger profile found in my DIY store (its cheaper than the hobbystore). They are very important for the shape and measurements. I used 1x10mm nails to fix them to the uprights.





Work of today and 3 uorights ready for tomorrows work.



The 9mm ply are cutoffs from the Cornelia Marie. I am happy that I kept them!

And the work goes on .... I really like it at the moment!



And the work I did today.



I had to add some 35cms to the profiles ....



The bow is typically for a trawler from brittanny!!! I love it!







12 uprights left and this work is done!

Thanks a lot my friends .... not easy to do my best everyday! 6 months since I started this project ... after I scrapped the other one!
The first 6 uprights .... no there are 9 uprights to keep things sturdy! I think the planks will make a lot of tension on the uprights .... just to be on the save side I added 3 more ... I have no idea how many upright are on the plan as I did not look at it since I finished the frames .... I prefer freelance scratchbuilding. I it look ok it is ok!







Work was done very fast today so I did the right side as well ....



Todays work ....



The shape is not 100% alright but I will correct that later.



The next step is to fill all spaces between the uprights.

Closing the gaps between the uprights .... fun work!



Tomorrow I will leave Switzerland for a few days in Brittanny. After 25 months searching for a job my anita told me to pack my bag and go on holidays alone. She can't come with me as she can take a few days off work .... hope it will give me some new ideas for the future.

Hi Danielle, congratulations about the job. I hope it goes well for you. There is nothing like getting some real reference material on the spot so to speak, and you had some rest and recuperation as well  :-))


The infills look attractive with the frame ends being slightly darker making it look like an intentional pattern.

Thanks a lot my friends!!!! I hope I will like the job. Its something totally different. I will be an Administrator Spare Parts Catalogue in a company that fabricates wheeled and armoured military vehicles .... I really wanted this job ... all things with military vehicles and weapons are interesting for me.
Today I took the hull into my flat to weight it ....



10.5kg...I call it a lightweight hull ....  ok2



...and then I had the idea put the hull into water!!! But first I made a waterproof protection out of rubbishbags.



...Ufff ... just 4-5cm left in the bathtub. The hull is 137cm long and some 125-130cm at the waterline.



... to get the hull on the waterline I used all kinds of weights .... batteries 14.7kgs, full glass waterbottles 6.5kgs, glasses full of honey or chocolate cream 11kgs and lead 10.9kgs





I needed 43.281kgs weight to get the hull on the waterline .... 43.281kgs+10.5kgs=53.781kgs



I am thinking of using a ballast tank that I can fill with water as I want ... with compartment against sloshing. It could also simulate empty boat and full (fish) boat. If I add a tank of say 5l .... will it really reduce the ballast weight 5kg? Any ideas how I can build this?

Apart from all of the ballast you're also gonna need a couple sherpas, I reckon  :police:

Cripes, even with gubbins etc that is a lot of water ballast to find space for.


Still, its good to see you have lots of choccy spread  :-))

Dont think water is dense enough, 5L is 5 kg. Far to bulky. what about lead shot in bags, moulded into place with a mix of epoxy. They would fit into specific places in the hull and be removable. Not as easy as pumping water from the lake, but more effective.
