There we go, another example of an interesting technical hull design but sadly the designers have hidden most of it under the skin  {:-{

Actually it is a steel hull .... its a deep "V" hull. I redesigned the frames to a wooden hull by myself.

Redone some of the frames .... every second frame is now ready to be cut out of wood.

I wont tell you what I have at home regarding guns and ammo .... I could defend my flat for several days ....  <*<
Mousi is a little bit special .... does like cuddles and strokes but only from my wife .... a shy cat.

Back to the shipbuilding .... here a picture of the frames. In the paperblock are the frames I will use to cut the plywood. Nicely and tidy. The cardboard frames will be used to check roughly if the shape of the hull is alright.



The keel gets his V-groove. the last plank will sit in this groove. I wanted to add this detail since ages!



Even if its not 100% straightlined .... the plank will hide it.



Here you can see how the plank is sitting in the groove. I used hand and electrical tools. The Proxxon carving tool is very handy but a little bit noisy. I also used the flex attachment to clean the V-groove a little bit. I tried to use the "muscledriven" tool but it would have taken ages to finish the work.



I wonder how wide planks on a 16m fishtrawler with wooden hull are ..... any ideas??? I have some leftover fir 10x2mm profiles from the N. Loredana project. They look a little bit small ....

Mike,

Absolutely correct. O0 O0 O0

For the older UK/Commonwealth that would be the Ubiquitous 25 pounder and for the younger 'set' the 105mm.

Today I made the first frame. #1 at the stern. I just like it because its not the usual frame as it has some 5 uprights and a horizontal beam on it.
Cutting out as exactly as possible two times the frame. Using the template with a 0.5mm pencil gives me the best result. Only minor sanding was needed. Then I glued the two pieces together.



Now its time to drill all neccessary 3mm holes for the wooden dowels.



Glue the pieces together and hammer carefully the dowels in with a hammer.



I checked many times if everything was on the right place and at the right angle. I must admit I never controlled that much my work with the N. Loredana or Cornelia Marie.



After a little bit over 3h work the frame was finished. It weights 140g ... I wonder how much weight the hull will be at the end.



It fits nicely the groove on the keel .... first frame .... perfect for me!!!!





Now I should get some planks on this frame but how wide do the have to be???? Any ideas?
I guess the original planks must have some 200mm ... so it would be 13.6mm in 1/14.68 scale

Thank you very much!!!  :}

Today I glued the first frame on the keel .... two wooden 2x10s keep the frame level. With this method I do not have to care if the workpiece is level or not. I also used 3-4 90 L's ....



Then I copied frame #3 on the plywood. As you can see most of the frame pieces are copied on the inner piece that was left over from frame #1. At the end I used very litte plywood for 3 frames!



Cut out all pieces on the bandsaw. The more you take care to cut exactly, the less you have to adjust the pieces later.



The middle part is adapted to the keel.



All pieces are glued together with the help of the template.

Here I am working on frame #5 (I do every other frame at the moment) and frame #3 is waiting to be glued in.



And today work from the backside ....

That is looking marvellous Danielle. Your costs will be much reduced with that level of recycling and the satisfaction of complex carpentry will be that much greater.

Thanks a lot!!!! :-))
To make it perfect I should have used hex bolts and screws after glueing the frames together .... but I thought its just too much realism ....  ok2

Here you can see how much plywood was left over after 8 frames. There is enough plywood left to make another one. In the paper bag the small leftovers and in the vaacum cleaner the sawdust (one bag full).



I am quite happy with my work. All frames fitted exactly but one .... never built a model ship so fast and so accurate before.

I hope the empty hull will be around 7-10kgs .... I target a weight of 20kg with all equipment on board .... who knows .... maybe more maybe less. This is a trawler for the north atlantic and they sit rather deep in the water ...

If you plan to add knees to the frames and run out of wood, I see one at the bottom of the first picture  :} The frames look amazing, and I bet the smell of Birch ply is lovely.

 {-) {-) {-) Smells very nice in my workspace ....

Did quite a lot today. I bought a small piece of plywood that I use to glue the frames together. I added another joint to the frames so each frame has 10 pieces instead of 8. Frames 15, 17, 19 and 21 are glued on the keel. Also frame #2 at the stern.





Looks good to me hope the hull we be straight .... looks a little bit funny at the moment.

Progress looks straight to me Danielle. I expect minor discrepecies will creep in but these an be rectified before gluing with a little sanding and trimming.

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

I had some major issues with the discrepancies .... so after measuring checking and controlling everything I got rid of the upper part of the frames.





5min with my Proxxon and the problem is solved!



Looks OK so I can make the next few frames!
