Hello Martin,
 The model is printed by Marcle now if there still doing it, 184 A3 sheets of card that cost 300. it was first designed by Captain G. B. Robinson, Lieutenant Commander R.D. Royal Naval Reserve. long before CAD, like some one said it's like building  the real ship but in card and not steel, lots of cutting out and thousands of 1mm slits to cut into each peace, as I have said before not a weekend build. Am building it as my late father-in-law was a plater in the Austin and Pickersgill ship yard in Sunderland  that build most of them it should be build as a display model but you will have seen am going to make as a RC model so will be altered in many ways a member on here called Carl with his father build one a years ago as I have done over the last week running 3/4 inch Ali square tube down each side of the hull most of the way on top of the plywood hold floors glued on top of the card tank tops so it will not break its back the reason being I will need three/four battery's  plus some where near 120lb of lead ballast to get her any where near the water line I have made 20, 4lb ingots so far with a screw eye in each so I can lift them in and out when at pond side I hope to explain ever thing as the build go's on.
                   Regards Howard.

Hello Martin.
 I have just noticed one of your reply's just what did you mean by is it my frame   the card kit as such is made/printed by Marcle by like Carlm am making is so I can sail it and make it R C so adding things to make it stronger like the battery's and lead ballast.
           Regards Howard.

Hello Gents,
At long last managed to fit the last two watertight bulkheads been held-up painting Grandsons bedroom (as batman skyline) and with the nice weather Danish oiling and varnishing the garden furnisher, As you will notice number six bulkhead is a lot larger being full high as the others are only up to shelter deck Hight more will be added  once the shelter deck is fitted I hope the photo's explain things better.
              Regards Howard.

Hi Warspite,
 yes should look better once transverse beams are on plus number 5 hold floor/deck will find it but still as strong its cutting out all the slots that takes most of my time go to bed at night with throbbing hands.

Hi Guys,
 hope am not posting to many pictures but I think a photo can say explain and show much more then words ever can tell me if its gets boring  I have put the transverse beams to the floor of number five hold in today and connected the after peak up to the hold and tank tops hold decks plates in tomorrow.
               Regards Howard.

Hi Roy,
Yes once the hull is made I'll be covering it all in 0.4mm ply then seal with a resin and tissue fibre grass matting then rubbed down and copy the kits shell plates in 0.5mm plastic then painted and varnished the frames will be covered in the kits card frames first before I start putting on the 0.4 ply look up SD14 build by Carl and see his sails beautifully lol like I have said before not a weekend build my father in law built the real SD14 ships in Sunderland.

Howard, there are threads I follow on here, not because I plan to make that particular model but rather because I am mesmerised by the skill and commitment to progress shown by the builder.  This is one of those threads.  I hope I am still around when you finish it!  I guess there is a host of silent followers as well, judging by the number of views - 42,000-odd and counting!  :o

Keep up the good work.  :-))

Greg

Thank you Greg and Warspite,
 its nice to see you are enjoying mammoth task  I have said many times this is no weekend build I did at first thought I'd of finished by now four years on but no but then I've had two very bad illnesses one being a week in ICU then on a ward and another coming off my motor bike not good for model boating plus a house move and all that brings plus my daughter getting married having her house build across from us and now two wonderful grandchildren. Greg  I to hope to see it finished and am sure you will am trying to do a little bit each day now even if its just sitting down in my indoor model room and cutting out more bits of card and then all them 1mm slots to cut beleave me there's tens of thousand's of them so far so please keep looking that pleases me no end that you gents are still interested  even if its just to see if it will ever make it to the water and see if it floats  there's a gent on here call Carlmt who build this a few years ago and our wish is to see both together on the same pond sailing together as sister ships from the same company now that might need some tugs lol.
 thank you for your interest. I do think pictures  can say and  explain more then my words ever can.
              Regards Howard.

in the second photo you will see the engine room escape tunnel and passage way to the steering flat not put the ladders in yet as using plastic ones look better then the card ones.

One question, are the slots the same size, I would assume the width is the same - card width, but length / depth?


Is there a way to make a cutting tool, like a punch - slight tap and the card is cut, retro fitting an old hole punch for instance.
