Hi Aldo,

 

It's great to hear that you're doing better.  Depression with any major health issue is a tough well to climb out of and from what I just read, you're climbing. 

 

Nice work on the Triton.  Did you get that "bump" sorted out?  Ok.. obviously, as you've planked.   She's looking good... better than good, actually.

Hi Aldo,

Wonderful to see you back in the shipyard again! I do hope this signals a resumption of play and that we'll be seeing a lot more of you once again.

Your progress looks great so far. Great idea to have Chuck laser cut some tricky parts for you.

Aldo!

 

What a fantastic holiday gift to see you back in the shipyard and posting on MSW!  You have been missed my friend.

 

I want to wish you and your family a Happy and HEALTHY new year!  And let's not forget your Badger -- she deserves the company of your Triton and Pegasus along side her.  So here's to a very busy shipyard as well -- for many years to come!

 

Cheers,

Robert

Welcome home mate.

 

Excellent planking mate, and that is a good fix with the gun ports.

 

Good to have you back

 

Be Good

Thank you very much Augie, Anja, Nils, Sjors, Mark, Grant, Robert, Mike, Christian, and Mobbsie for the kind words and well wishes, I really appreciate it, and many thanks also to all who pressed the like button :)

 

To answer some querries:

 

Nils, my Pegasus is unfortunately on hold as my health condition limits my building time so I prioritized Triton.

 

Mark, the bump has indeed been sorted out and the modification produced a relatively fair hull, it appears that the NMM draught has negligible distortion and can be directly traced to create replacements for the offending aft-most bulkheads :)

 

 

Sjors, I'm afraid that I don't have anymore copies of those previous pics :( however, to summarize, those posts just show one method on how you can detect the degree of horizontal distortion on draughts by comparing 10 feet sections at various areas such as the foremost, middle, and aftmost portions of the "ruler-like" diagram as seen in the picture below:

 
Attached File  Triton Distortion.JPG   94.35KB   0 downloads
 
 
The closer these measurements are to each other, the less the horizontal distortion and vice versa. That is however only a minute aspect so for further reading, I highly recommend David Antscherl's two articles: "Understanding Eighteenth-Century Admiralty Drafts" and "Drawing Techniques for the Modeleller". These two excellent works give a lot of useful info on interpreting and drafting ship plans :) 
 
Thanks again you guys, have a Happy and Prosperous New Year to all! B)

Aldo!

 

HMS Pegasus   mothballed? And giving priority to the HMS Triton?!  Way to go! :dancetl6:

 

Sometimes when I see my Triton covered with a blanket (mothballed?) to avoid all the dust and everything from the environment... I realized the amount of work done so far and I ask myself when something is done, finished, concluded... or it´s not.  I feel really happy just looking the Triton on its stage right now.

It´s just a thought.

 

Here´s an interesting pic to explore, let´s see how many mothballed guns are on the ships and subs.... I have counted 56... :rolleyes:

Best wishes Aldo and keep going!

Aldo,

 

I've a question to the position of your bulkheads. Why don't you use the station lines of the original drawing? You get the hull form from the body plan and can direct start with your build?

Thanks for dropping by and the good word guys :)

 

Daniel, I think I'll also cover my ships the with blanket next time I mothball them, it's amazing how much dust can accumulate in these models when left alone for months :D Thanks for the picture, wow! that's a lot of mothballed ships B)

 

Christian, thanks for the tip :) If I understand correctly, do you mean I should cut new bulkhead extensions based on the NMM plan and position them to their corresponding station lines on the NMM profile plan? If yes, then I think that was what I did:
