Harvey,

 

Perhaps 4x4mm but I just pulled out what I had avaliable in my junk box as they are only temporary to hold the frames in place and will be removed once I have all the framing  completed inside the hull.

 

I am finishing up the gun ports and still have some fairing to do inside before I start on the internal framing

 

Edt I wished I had installed the fillers I notice that I now have a little hogging perhaps after I installed the Keelson

Yeah, I noticed that my Triton even with all of the things installed is still able to twist like a Twizzler candy strip in all directions. Gotta keep an eye on that as you go along. You may be able to force that out with the planking when the time comes.

Your model does look good though. Keep up the progress! Meanwhile back at my project I am still sanding the outer part of the hull....

Thanks Rich!

 

Richard, after I added the temporary rybands I was amazed on how rigid the entire structure became and I am sure it will become more rigid as I add the inside decking structure and I think I will be able to correct the (hogging) rising of the keel as its only in the stern fourth of the keel

 

Still working on the gun ports and cleaning up the inside but I am making progress

Some updated pictures! still working on the gun ports and fairing the inside. The framing is starting to look a bit cleaner. This vessel has a very sharp entry as you can see by the picture.

The starbord side gun ports are pretty much cleaned up and have started on the portside.

Looks good to me. i am sure in the original that they were also off just a little.  Planking goes along way to mask it.

Hello Guy!

 

Saw your post yesterday...

 

 

Yes some of the frames are not square!

 

Can you slightly "move" some of them with wedges or something? The disaligment it´s pretty tiny... Maybe those temporary ribbans have tricked the frames a little bit out.

 

She´s looking more and more rich every single post you add. Keep going!

 

Daniel.

Daniel,    yes as I fit the gunports I am making some adjustments but there will still be some that are not square.

 

Pete, Thanks for the encouragement I have not decided yet how much planking I will do! most likely I will pick the worst side doing the most planking on that side. I was thinking about removing some of the filling frames to open the inside up for viewing. 

 

I just have for remember I am learning while doing!

Hopefully you and I both can get back to the Triton as I was off too, but I was doing research.

Looking forward to seeing you progress on your Triton.

Wow How time flies!  Yes I have been working on the Triton but have aloso been working on other ship projects as I have 5 hulls in dry dock and perhaps a few other non ship related projects. The mother-in-law just passed away last month and the wife and I have been working on her house getting ready to put on the market some time in January. I am also getting ready to do my first hull coppering so looking forward to that. I will post some pictures on that but not here. Perhaps I can find a thread for that on the site.

 

I also visited and  joined the Mystic Group this last summer on a trip to an international stamp show in New York I  look forward to returning to use the research facilities...I hear its fantastic!

 

Cheers
