When all the frames are in place, It is time for a first sanding session. Thanks to the large scale, I can use normal tools. After sanding I install the keelson.

After the sanding I make the notches for the gun port lintels. As can be seen on the picture the frames on the port side are a bit to short below the gun port. Fortunately there will be planking on top of it.

The grove in the limber strakes is made with the Proxxon saw

To determine the angle of the sides of the limber boards, I fix a piece of cardboard with some scotch tape on the end of the keelson and limber strake. This way it is easy to line the contours of the space between them. The result is a template of the limber board.

With the template I make a pattern of the angle to set up  the angle of the Proxxon saw to saw the boards.

Looking good.  I like the way everything is going.  The limber strakes look great.

Thank you Mark,

I have a question about the limber boards. I guess they were removable to check the level of the water in the bilges. I suppose they were shorter than the lenght of the cross section and there were (finger)holes in it in order to make it easier to lift them up. Do you have an idea of the lenght and the look (from above) of the limber boards?

Geert, I had the same question in my build log. All the replies I got were they are about 3 feet long with a hole drilled at the ends for lifting out. So I scaled my accordingly. Turned out looking nice so that is what I went with.

 

Go to page 9 on my log and scroll down to about post #170 and you can read the replies.

 

Hope this helps

What Pete said.  The removable part was more for cleaning out debris than checking the water level.  The limber channel was for the water to drain into the well and given the nature of the ships, it wasn't unusual for them to get clogged up.

Next thing to do is fixing the inner planking of the lower deck.

Some special attention is to be drawn to the lower deck clamp. To determine the angle of the upper side of the plank I fasten with clamps a lath on the bottom level of the lower deck beam. I hold a piece of cardboard against the frame and mark the lined of the bottom deck beam and the frame.

This cardboard will be the template to saw the deck beam.

The deck clamps are in place and the last gaps in the planking are filled.

While the glue is drying I start to make the lower deck beams and the lower deck beam arms. On the fourth picture the deck beams are laid in the model but not yet fastened. Before I will do that, the lower deck has to be tree nailed.
