Pack 2 - Stage 13


This stage sees the installation of frame 10 and the last length of the lower deck. A 5mm x 5mm beam was glued to the lower ledges of frame 10. The joints of the lower deck sections were reinforced with scraps of 5mm x 5mm strips from below.

Bulkheads B and C were covered with dark wood strips, sanded and sealed with satin polycrylic clear coat.

Until next time....

Pack 2 - Stage 14


I started by fitting and gluing the last section of the main deck. This section was planked with 70mm sections of planking following the same pattern and the rest of the deck.

Pack 2 - Stage 15


This stage starts by sanding, fitting and gluing frame 11 to the false keel. Deck beams were cut and fitted across the ledges of frames 8, 9 and 10. I then Glued bulkhead A to the front of frame 8. Finally, 2 doors were added to the each of the bulkheads attached to frames 4 and 8.

Pack 2 - Stage 16


The upper deck is planked, as before, with 70mm strips of planking. I sanded the planked deck and applied 3 coats of clear coat.

I built the grating from a future stage and glued it in place on the stern end of the mid deck before fitting and gluing the upper deck in place. I did this for ease of assembly as the opening is under the overhang and would be more difficult in the future steps.

Pack 2 - Stage 17


Thanks for all the kind comments to this point.

This stage begins with the small deck piece that was shipped with stage 16. It was planked as before. I have chosen to paint the clear coat on the deck prior to fitting it in place.

Beams were cut and glued to the front of frames 10 and 11. The deck was then fixed to those beams.

Bulkhead B was attached to the front of frame 10. At this point I also decided to go ahead and install bulkhead C to the front of frame 11 and the wood trim along the front edge of the quarter deck.

This completes this stage and Pack 2.

Thanks again for following my build. Follow me back to the completion of my A-10 Warthog as I anxiously await arrival of Pack 3.

Mark.
