Hi again

Cant believe how 2 years can fly by

I have been busy on various model projects  - but mostly the last year has been taken up by my little boy arriving on the scene. He is now 13 months and a lovely cheerful (most of the time) fellow.

 

I have no intentions of getting to the Triton for the next 2 years or so - but by no means do i want to abandon it. I do feel it was a pity that i couldnt keep the progress going but thats life, marriage and children ...

I have to get my Stern Trawler done first and that will take a bit of time.

 

My intentions with the Triton - display it in my model building room - or even in the lounge - in a strong and safe cabinet - which would be pretty huge. Yes i want to do all the rigging and not skimp an any aspects - except for 1 - which was why i was doing POB below deckline and POF above. I wanted to save on a large amount of time by simply being able to get the lower half of the Hull done without having to do frames - and i was not going to do cutaway - so you would never see. The attachment of Frames above deckline to the bulkheads below deckline was going to be an interesting part of the build - but not too difficult. It would just involve adding a few bits of strengthening crossmembers at various points as needed - one the hull was planked, by which time it would be incredibly strong already.

 

I need to look through the builds and see who has completed a Triton in the last 6 years or so
