Ok, Getting started on Triton cross section.  My first scratch build.  Just cut out the keel, false keel, and keelson.

Second is for testing purposes.  Next step is to sand and affix the keel and false keel then wait for more plans!

I'm going to be able to get some wood next week at Woodcraft.  What is the best for frames?  and should it be plywood?  Any idears?

Are the frames going to be exposed?  If so, don't use plywood, you'll see the layers.   Look for a tight-grain wood.  Popular woods seem to be cherry, boxwood, pear, apple, (ok.. any fruit wood), maple.  It's really your choice.  I wish we had a Woodcraft where I live... or any woodworking store for that matter.  <sigh>

Chery has seemed to work well for mine and Maple for the planking as such. I is really your choice. As Mark said a tight grained wood work well for model at this scale (fruit woods). Pick something you like and go with it, it is your model and you are the one to please.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
