Hello, thanks very much Mick, Allan and Nils

 

That's good to know Mick and Allan. Now I can sleep soundly again. :)

 

@Nils

I would like to show a bit of everything at the outside. The Main-Wale and below of it 4 rows with shifting planks. Then the 1st futtock- and the floorhead -ribbands and the garboard strake. Above the black-strake I will also plank only a part of the frames but in any case the complete sheer strake. Both sides will be similar. So the theory.

Hello,

 

Here's a little update and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas.

I started to fit the ribbands and coloured the Main-Wale black.

The ribband-nails are done in the same manner as described in the book from David Antscherl of the Swan-Class. Only the insertion tool was made of a screw and two screw-nuts.

For securing the nails I used white clue and think that it works.

The Main-Wale is coloured with black stain. Mark gave me this advice in my build of the Leopard and it works very well.

Hello,

 

Thank you so much for your nice comments and also for the likes. I'm very pleased about this great interest.

 

Here's a little update. Some strakes below the wale and the garboard strake are fitted. The progress is very slowly because It's partial a bit tricky.

Also I needed time to find a way to add the planks without leaving any trace at the frames. Therefor the build from Ed of the Extreme Clipper is a great help.

In the TFFM-book this strakes are reffered to as thickstuff under the wales. There is a little step from the second to the third strake to see on the following photo. That's why the thickness of the strakes decreases. I will sanding down them when the fourth strake is installed.

That's the current progress.

Jürgen,

 

why do you install ribbands and plank the side?

Hi Christian,

 

I will show a bit of everything. A bit of planking and so much as possible of the frame-build because I have worked so hard to make it. I will apply only 4 strakes below the main-Wales. Furthermore I think to show the ribbands is also very interest.

Jürgen,

 

wouldn't it be easier to plank one side of the model and let the other perhaps until the whales unplanked?

I cannot judge this Christian. I like it much more when both sides are similar.

Hi Juergen,

 

very neat planking! Your Triton is coming good along! I like the color contrast between planks and frames. Very good!
