  1. I have numbered the frames so that we can discuss the correct frame I think that: frame 17, 18, 19, 20 = frame 3 on the drawings frame 21 = frame 2 on the drawings frame 22 = frame 1 on the drawings frame 23 = frame 0 on the drawings frame 24,25 = frame A on the drawings what do you think ( the forum) ?
  2. Druxey : dead flat = the biggest frame, google give not a good translate. I find it a good question of Mau wich numbers next to 0. where must come frame 1 and 2, wich side of the zero. I numberd the frames, but what with frame 18 to 25. ???
  3. I don't think that druxey has a problem with this. Going to find out to forward his mesages to you
  4. Thank you, now I know why my calculations would not add up, was already starting to doubt my own brains.
  5. Firstly, I would like to thank you "Druxey" for forwarding me the missing Frame.(one problem less) thank you very much !! Second I want to thank you, with the quote "converting measurements from duodecimal to metric and then dividing by 48" Last year I took classes in Belgium to understand Ancre's monographs. The teacher gave these documents as an extra, never thought I would use them, but they are now very useful. Thank you very much again !
  6. I copied this from Mike (Stuntflyer) topic The Hayling Hoy He tapered the aft end from 12" to 10". the rabbit is 2 1/2" deep I think that " means something else.
  7. I have a little question? As a European, I am used to working with the metric system. These plans are drawn in the English / American system and use inches, feet, etc. On the plans for the width of the frames I see dimensions in inches (I suspect) I am supposed to do these values each time multiply by 2.54cm and then convert them to a scale of 1/48 Or am I wrong? Why am I asking this, my calculations don't match what I'm measuring on the plan Example:
  8. My new project, do not expect long texts because I don't like to write and my englisch is bad, but through this way I still want to let other woodbuilders enjoy my work, just as I enjoy their work on this forum. Why this ship This ship would be ideal as a beginnersboat to make a full frame without having to make 100 gunports and 3 identical decks. Everything that is present in a large ship is also reflected in this boat. (Except armament) A good exercise if we plan to build a larger ship. Furthermore, this has the advantage that this is a project of 2 years, while a large ship is quickly a m
  9. and a last question : brass casting, how do you do that?? I never seen this before. Do you have a tutorial ???
  10. Johann, another question : where did you commissioned the etched parts. (I am from Belgium) regards Luc
  11. beautiful work johann, and thank you for showing your work , i learned a lott After reading you work, i have still a question. After you used birchwood for making the brass parts black, do you use a glue (like CA) for attaching them definitly into the wood. regards Luc
  12. Very nice indeed, are you still using walnut wood for nailing, and what's the thickness?
  13. thank you Greg the progress of the last month. finishing the first planking and putting the lines on the hull so i can check of everything is still ok. On my stern there is a different of a few millmeters. In the kit the frames are 6mm thick , i used +/- 9mm. this give a mistake of 1.5mm, not much , but to much for the basic to build on.
