Hi Everyone

I have reinforced the captive nuts and studs in the keel as it was getting a bit floppy. There are 2 nuts per assembly this time - to ensure stability....Cool I shall be using the construction cradle - modified from my SotS build - for this project...BigGrin

Hi Everyone

Here are the pics detailing the deck support beams, which are concave from the centreline to scuppers each side to allow drainage of water...Cool The bendy ply deck plate will be fitted over them - hopefully....Blink

Hi Derek

Thanks for looking in and the nice comment...BigGrin
To be honest, I looked everwhere for a similar ship in kit form but couldn't find one!...Cool So thought I'd have a go at this...Laugh

Hi Everyone

Some more progress...

Have trial fitted all the foreward rib frames - only the small one at the front is glued in - to make a firm guide for the rest of them...Cool

Also cut out the 2 decks forward - they need a bit more tickling before installing...Cool

Hi Everyone

Here's a little more progress in the past week or 2...Cool

Cut the two Main Deck plates and hoping I can fit them complete...Blink But I've found that almost all the ribs are too wide even though I cut everything precisely and even allowed for the keel thickness....Huh

So instead of a little tickling I'm doing some serious carving instead....LOL

Hi Everyone again

I have to make short posts as this forum doesn't like me typing too much and tosses me out and all what I just did as well!Laugh
Laugh

Here's a bit more progress - working out the Stern parts - quite a job as there's not much detail on the drawing...BigGrin
But I'm getting there...Cool

Hi Everyone again

Here is my last post for now, showing how I've put the Stern parts together...Cool Nothing is glued yet as I well need to keep disassembling from time to time...Cool
The parts may look a bit rustic and agricultural but all will be well in the end...LOL I don't have the luxury of a laser cutter either...BigGrin

I think that all looks very well done John.

I think its really interesting that you can take a flat plan and produce a 3d model from that.

Hope it all continues well for you.

Hi Tony

Thank you for the compliment - yes, it takes quite a lot of nutting out as there is not a lot of detail or information on the drawing...Blink

Hi Everyone

I've had to rectify almost all the rib frames - some were too narrow and some too wide across the beam....Blink
So I needed to cut some in half and put a little infill in and others cut down by 3-6mm as required...Cool Ho Hum....Laugh
As all were now glued down the middle I needed to reinforce some of them for strength...Cool

Then I dry fitted everything...Cool

All looking good John...Cool Cool .. With scratch building you're going to come across many things that will need to be changed or modified as you journey through. Its all part of the fun... Look forward to seeing your next update....

Hi Alan

Yes - you're absolutely right - I've changed directions a number of times after things didn't quite work out!...BigGrin But I am finding this more satisfying than SotS in some ways as there is no restriction on how it's done....Cool Laugh

Here's the latest update...Cool

Hi Everyone

Compliments of the Season to one and all...BigGrin

I have loose fitted the Stern main deck plate to the ribs in order to carry out alignment, I forgot to mention earlier - there is no provision for ribs between #7 and #8 (Midships). A distance of 260mm overall. So I made 2 extra ones and called them 7a and 7b...Cool

I added bamboo strips as guides to firmly align ribs....Cool Rib #5 need centralising first...Cool

I plan on balsa infills between Stern and Bow ribs...BigGrin

Regards
JohnP

Hi Budgie

Thanks for looking - and I forgot to mention - I have plenty of 1m long white wood planks but not decided yet how I will cover the hull. I certainly won't be using bamboo, but possibly a combination of 1mm x 75mm balsa and the 1mm x 1m planks....Cool
The bamboo will be used for internal longitudinal stiffening....BigGrin

Regards
JohnP
