Over the last few months, I have worked through a very challenging task of creating a set of files that cover the rigging of the Royal William. They include text, diagrams and photos arranged in a sequential order of rigging. They are freely available for anybody who wishes to make use of them and it is my fervent desire that they will add to the joy of creating this mighty ship. Having said that, there is still some work to be done on these files to fully complete them. Hopefully, the MSW members will 'jump in' and make this a real community effort through a range of ideas, suggestions and cr
I'm about to start planking the hull of the Amati/Victory Models Lady Nelson, and I was hoping to get some feedback on the lines of my proposed planking bands. I basically just divided up the plank widths on my tick strips for each bulkhead by 3 (4 top planks, 5 middle planks, and 4 bottom planks), then tweaked the lines at the bow to be a little more aesthetically pleasing. I'm still considering lowering both lines at the bow to give me a little more space for the upper planks and tighten up the area around the garboard strake. Any and all comments are appreciated! Tha
I've been playing with the free version of DelftShip (www.delftship.net) for creating hull designs. I've done quite a few designs by hand but I've never been able to see how I could create a faired hull with 2D CAD: it would be too cumbersome. As an test, I created a model of a 30 m "frigate". Although I didn't use all the tools for fairing the lines, it only took my about three hours to create this design. I found the tools for pushing and pulling the hull into shape reasonable intuitive. I've attached some of the output files: Lines drawing Table of waterline offsets (program
So you may have noticed I mentioned in my Harriet Lane thread that I messed up. Well, upon trying to make my fix I didn't put enough tension on the lines again when I re-glued my bowsprit. oops. I remember in 1.0 that there was a thread talking about if you could shrink them. I can't remember what the resulting conversation said. I believe the lines are polyester since they melt when burnt. I was thinking (thanks to my husband's suggestion) that I should wet the lines that need to be shrunk and put my hairdryer on hot on them. Would that be viable?
