dooder85 posted a topic in Build Logs for SHIP MODEL KITSFirst build here, i read somewhere that the first kits have detailed instructions that build your knowledge base to know how to fill in the blanks when it comes to the less detailed instructions on the larger / more complex kits.. if that's the case I sure am glad i started with this little guy because i'm really struggling with the instructions! The miniature furniture kits / scratch-build tutorials i've worked off of have been drowning in detail. The build was going reasonably smoothly until I got the planking, where the instructions call for installing the sheeting, after rummaging through the kit a few times looking for a sheet of planks I decided it must be another name for strip wood. I didn't question this until i was securing the deck and the spacing between planks grew out of scale that I started second guessing and, digging through the kit one more time, found a pile of veneer strips - at this point i'm not sure if i've used my hull materials as planking or not! The images all appear to be strip wood, so i'm going to carry on and assume everything is fine. It's incredibly difficult to tell from any of the images online which wood was used, i seem to be the only one having this existential crisis. Yesterday was spent sanding / sealing the decks and today I will tackle filing down the ribs so I can start working on the hull.
AntonyUK posted a topic in Build Logs for SCRATCH SHIP MODEL PROJECTSHello. I have been asked to construct a Model to show the inside of a Ship. I have chosen to build the HMS Victory at a large scale of 1/36.90 Having got permission to use the plans from :- http://www.mountainhaven.com/VictoryXCP/PDFbin/Frame_Sta_( .pdf http://www.mountainhaven.com/VictoryXCP/PDFbin/Frame_Sta_0.pdf http://www.mountainhaven.com/VictoryXCP/PDFbin/Frame_Sta_3.pdf A previous topic regarding plans. http://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/2885-large-scale-cross-section-drawings/#entry79890 I have redrawn the plans and added bits and made the drawings slightley more accurate. I am using adobe illustrator. The nice thing about using Illustrator is that it is vector drawn so it can be scaled up to any size. I am printing mine on A1 this gives me the scale of 1:36.90 The construction of this model will consist of five frames on each side. The Keel is make from mahogany. This will have holes for pining the frame guides. And the Garboard plank cutout. And false copper pins/rivets. The two frame guides are fixed to the keel. The frames are inserted into the frame guides and jig'ed to hold them at the correct shape and distance. I have also included the curvature of the hull into the model. The clamping blocks have a curve in to allow for the hull curvature. The clamping blocks will remain in place until I need to remove them for planking. The dummy frames will be added to the ends of the hull. I will use 4mm basswood for the dummy frames. Next I will plank the exterior. Then its building up the deck by deck. Orlop deck beams drawing.
