Hi All,

I just could not resist the temptation to make a start on my Black Pearl. (Following calls to first finish the Victory, Victory Cross Section, SOTS, Bismark and The Golden Hind - But what do they know?Sneaky )

I decided to wait until I had all the parts for the keel and ribs - in an effort to keep things aligned and square. I glued the 3 hull pieces together and clamped them to a piece of chipboard. The masking tape is to stop the glue sticking to the chipboard.

It's difficult not to want to start a new project. You certainly have a lot of projects lined up.

Hope this one goes really well for you.

Happy Modelling

Tony

Hi Alan and Tony,

Thank you for your encouragement. I am going to focus on my Victory, but just a little sideline work on the Pearl.

Kind regards,

Garth

Hi All,

I bought an assortment right angle brackets to fit to the base.
(I must point out, that here in RSA, we have a hardware store that specializes in kitchen cabinets and wardrobes. Their prices are about 1/3 that of the main hardware stores.)
As it happened, I used these angled brackets and spring clamps to hold the ribs square as the glue dried.

Note: '...there is no such thing as too many clamps!!!'

Thats it for now. Hope to finish the ribs next.

Kind regards,

Garth

Hi Hans,
Thanks for looking in. Looking forward to seeing you start your build. It's been pretty easy up till now, much less work than the Victory.
Kind regards,

Hi All,

Fitted the rib braces and the remaining ribs. I had to move my angled brackets - and I think that I will cut them off when I fit the lower deck. I prefer to keep the ship attached to the chipboard for as long as possible - rather than using the frame supplied in issue 7.

Thats it for now,

Kind regards,

Garth

Hi Karl,
Thanks for looking in, and sorry for the late reply. I've not had much modeling time lately. When I do, I'm focusing on the Victory and only chipping away slowly on the Pearl.
Kind regards,
Garth

Hi All,

Spent some time on my Pearl as well this weekend. Fitted the lower deck.
I sanded the inside of the keel and ribs, as well as the deck to ensure that it is a fairly loose fit. My little Mouse Sander works a treat for this.
I found that forcing these parts only causes problems later on. Parts warp and tend to move out-of-square if their fit is too tight.
Pasted on some wood glue and weighed down the deck with lead weights.


Kind regards,

Garth
