Hi All.

Finally I chose to start this project. Like many others this will be my first attempt to scratch building. But  I hope that I will have enough skills and have time to finish it.

I completed the all kell parts, and ready for next step.

Like to ask for the rest of the plans

Nicely done on the keel pieces.   Boxwood, I'm assuming?

Good luck with your Triton build. I just started mine today too. It's going to be a fun project.

Actually not. It's a cherry wood. I wanted to use Boxwood but was unable to find where to buy Uk. I am not well chosen other materials. Maybe someone can suggest some wood can be used for frames?.

Here's a topic in the wood discussion that might help with wood in the UK...   http://modelshipworl...mber-suppliers/  The first one listed (twigfolly.com) seems to have become a dead link.  However, the replacement site is:  http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/384-where-to-buy-wood/?p=399613

 

Cherry works well also as I'm using it on my Licorne build.   Others also use maple or pear.    But perhaps that link above will be a help.

At the moment that's all. I started working at the tree nails for frames.

But I wanted to ask. Are there any direct information about that?

In looking at the work of others. It seems that everyone is doing it differently.

 

P.S.

Sorry for my English. Because I do so just learning, as ship modeling :)

Hi.

Maybe someone can help with information?

I would like to understand what would be the right way of set filling / spacer block?

Are there any exact dimensions for them?

Or need them at all? Because other projects it is not at all.

Great job! 

 

Treenails... I like using the same wood as the frames, in your case cherry. A drawplate can be used to make them.

 

Spacer blocks.... are you thinking between the frames near the top? I think they are a good idea as they make the structure sturdier.

Thanks Chad.

 

Talking about treenails .I just wanted to know if there are any specific dimensions where they need to bee located. How many  their really are on frame?

In any case it is too late. Because I decided to improvise. :)

Then next project i will found out how to do it more  correctly.

 

Yup. About set filling / spacer block i think that on the component between frames. Do they also have any specific dimensions and sizes where they need to bee located? Did real ships had them If not is it necessary to use them?
