cobra1951 Posted December 5, 2015 Share #1 Posted December 5, 2015 (edited) Hi This will be my build log for the Artesania Latina HMAV Bounty. It will be my first plank on frame model so wish me luck The first thing i decided to do was build myself a homemade slipway to stand the model in as it gets built. I got a plank and cut it to the size i wanted and then i cut two lengths of smaller plank to the same length. I then glued the smaller planks to the base plank with the Keel in between them (taking care not to get any seepage of glue into the centre slot. This will not only act as a stand but it will help to make sure the keel remains straight as i build. The next thing was to cut out some slots crossways along the length of the slipway to allow the frames to fit in their respective slots To make sure that the frames sat all the way down in their slots i took a spare 1.5mm x 5mm plank and layed it in the central slot of the slipway then when the keel was put back in it raised it in the slot just enough to stop the frames touching the base plank when they are fitted. That's as far as i have got for now i will post again as soon as i start to build the keel and frame parts Edited December 7, 2015 by Cobr@ popeye the sailor, AntonyUK, zoly99sask and 1 other 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
