Don,

 

The only log I've seen so far using one is the original poster's... http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/13427-riva-aquarama-by-aydingocer-amati-radio-a-new-challenge-for-a-so-far-static-ship-builder/

 

It looks interesting and I can see where it'll be a big help.  I'm not ordering one myself at this point as I don't know if the next ship will be a Hahn type or a right-side up type build.  Cross that bridge when I get to it.

Hi Don,

 

Yes you can move the white piece back and forward to align each of your frames. The screws which hold it are not permanently tight. They stay loose. You move it, and when it is in place, you tighten it.

Haven't put mind together yet, also I won't be using the board itself because it's not long enough but the rest of the stuff I will put to use for the build board I have for the upcoming build will make sure I keep the base that came with it though for later. Will post when I have it setup for the build.

Do the aligning piece need to be unscrewed and move to the next position to continue framing for the entire hull?

Thanks,

Richard

 

You'll certainly need to move the white aligning tool along the keel in order to adjust each frame, however I at least did not necessarily have to screw it all the time. For me it was just enough to align the piece using the rules on both sides and hold it just there while gluing the frame to place. Screwing tightly to place would be probably needed if you want to use the aligning piece also as a support to the frame.

I have a few of the modules. The tool holders are nice, keeping those items in one place and close at hand. :)

 

Looking at getting some of the paint holders, too; I use PollyScale/Floquil, Tamiya and ModelMaster. And some Vallejo colors, too. The racks are sized for the different size bottles. May try one of each of the 2 sizes of racks.

Finally took picture of the paperwork that came with it for you.

I was able to take what you posted and build my slip. Just on the final pieces waiting for the glue to dry. Then I can try it on my build of the Nao Victoria.

Hi Don,

 

I have used my build slip mainly for gluing the bulkheads and then mostly as a stand after that for planking. During planking I used a pillow which was making it easier for me (as I often intend to take the hull to my lap for close work).

 

Buy anyway here are a few photos.

 

On the first picture below you will see the screw holes at every 10cm intervals, on both sides of the base board. You also see the "panel" which is standing vertically. There are 2 "rails" on either side behind this panel. These rails are fixed to the panel (in other words, the white vertical panel and the two rails slide together on the base board). The rails have screws, which can be tightened/loosened using washers. While the screws are in the same hole the rails will allow the panel to move around 10cm back and forth. So,

- as you will work with the next frame, you move the panel accordingly.

- when the rails do not allow moving any further with the screws in the same hole, then you remove the screws, move the panel to the next location and put the screws to the next pair of holes.

Second photo below shows how you use the measurements on the panels for reference:

You can catch a few more photos in the early pages of my Riva Aquarama build log where the build slip is in action:
