Juergen, pic "spanten05" is beautyful!

 

Great Work, with the ship and the pics... oh How I am willing to go back with "my" Triton.

 

All the best and happy modelling!

Hello Guys

 

Here's a little update of my build. I install the aft Cant-Frames at the moment. You can see my practice of the following photos. I hate it to do the same for several hours. That's why I decided to produce a Frame, install it and than produce the next Frame and so on. At this way I had a bit of change.

To saw out the parts I use a band-saw with a special saw band for slightly curves.

I hope that the next update is showing the finish of the frame build.

Congratulations Jürgen!

 

Did you re-draw all the frames or just the main frames?

 

Daniel.

Thanks so much for nice comments Christian, Nils and Daniel. And also much thanks for the likes.

It's always a great motivation.

 

I have re-drawn all the frames from original-drawings Daniel. That was the reason of the long break because I must to force myself to do it :D

Hello

 

I have a question about the Beams of the Triton. How likely was that the Beams of the Triton are made in a single unit or was made up in two portions?

My Pandora book shows one piece deck beams from the bow back to about one fourth the length of the ship. The deck beams at the stern are also one piece about one fourth of the way forward. The center half is all two piece notched together.

Hi Guys

CONGRATULATIONS Jürgen!!

 

She actually looks like the first proper built HMS Triton on this forum. The rest of us have to comform with the double frame method that is less pleasent to look at... (smile)

 

Beatiful framing again!
