And so the build starts!

 

I have printed out the keel plans and will start cutting wood for the build. The Keel I will make using  maple

 

The Board is from anouther build, plenty of room for this build!

 

 

 

 

Note: I have removed this first picture because they include a image of the plans that are copyright'd

Welcome aboard Learner!

 

Nice board you have there. With rails and hand clamps...

 

Which one is the other built you made? Can you post a link to the Gallery?

 

Regards.

 

 

Daniel.

It was the HMS Druid which started out as a Hahn build but I moved to here to finish, I got the idea for the board fron the old site someone elses build.

 

Took awhile to find as I did not take that many pictures but here is a picture of one of the mast and the ship on the shelf

The keel is started but I need the sided deminisions to start the deadwood at the stearn and the bow.

 

Before I start that I will embed the nuts in the keel to secure to the building board and eventually the final mounting if the model is completed

oops I never put the nuts in the keel and will have to do so now that I have most of the frames installed~!

I have started downloading the plans, WOW! that will take some time but for now I have only down loaded the Keel, and stearn Deadwood and I can see I already have some rework To do on the keel. 

 

How long are the plans access available to me?

Guy.....as long as you are an active participant in the triton builds, you should have access to the downloadable plans.

Looking forward to your build

Guy, (Is this your name?) yeah it takes a while to download the files. There is a pdf list on "Trition Line's Drawings" that I posted don´t Know when but it is pretty helpful. It´s from the old MSW 1.0. I recomend you to buy lots of folders and put it together in a biger one.

 

One thing. Why you cut straight piece #5 of the keel? the one that meets the stem where the keel actually ends.

 

Good scarfs! Mines are crap.

 

Daniel.

Daniel,

 

Have downloaded all the files for the complete build, yes it tool awhile. There are also some duplicate files that had me a little confused at first, but with all the files you had to upload I can certainly understand.

 

One of the drawings I did not see is the one that sits on top of the keel to separate the frames (for a better name) but I need to go back through them again and see if I missed it

 

Yes Its Guy

 

I went through all the builds and did not see what I though should sit on top of the keel ...... Have I lost my mind!? do I have CRS? chuckle

Guy:

Are you talking about the rising wood? That may be part of the keel itself on the plans. I did not participate in the drawings on the full hull, but on the cross section, we included the rising wood in the keel.

Yes I believe that is what it is called and I could not find this in the drawings and when I went back through the other builds I did not see any that used (rising wood ) I will have to go back and study the plans as I know I saw a build using the rising wood on top ot the keel. I did not see this drawing in the cross section either
