Cross section plans


Recommended Posts

After a built my Battle Station in 1/24 scale I became interested in something a bit bigger and more complicated.  I'm currently working on the POF Armed Virginia Sloop, but am nearing the end of that build.  I'd like to consider doing the Triton in 1/24 scale.  I'll need to enlarge the plans, though.  How many pages constitute the plans in 1/48 scale, and are there any copyright considerations if I were to have the plans commercially enlarged? Enlarging 100 pages of plans at Fed Ex Office could cost a fortune!

Indeed there are many sheets.  About 40 give or take.  Enlarging the plans isnt an issue if they are for your own personal use only.  But because they are PDF you may be able to do it at home if you have that capability.

Best to ask that question in the triton forum.  I have never built it...but someone must n

know.  There may even be a topic about it already....just look around.  I cant imagine that question not being asked before.

I am currently building the Triton in 1:24 scale. (Project is currently suspended as with my other builds due to space constraints)

 

I just asked the print shop to print at 200%, as far as copyright goes where I live people don't care so that wasn't an issue. I also do all my builds using the metric system, so I convert everything to millimeters, just my personal preference and I grew up with the metric system. I use an app and a set of conversion tables to do the conversions, just more practical than a pen and paper or a calculator. Just my 2 (zimbabwe)cents :)

Thanks all.

 

Where is the cross section located on the full model? Obviously the boarding steps define the location.  Does anyone have a sheer plan photo to help me locate it?  The reason I ask is that there were several scarf joints in the keel and I want to see if including one is appropriate in the cross section. if I know where the section is on the sheer plan view, I can locate the scarf joints on the keel .pdf for the full Triton model.  Thanks.

 

My preliminary wood selections are boxwood for the keel, swiss pear for the keelson, rosewood for the false keel and cherry for the hull framing.

Dave, as far as I am aware the cross section plans are a simplified version of the full build with some minor differences (I did check for curiosity sake and it is so, and there are scarph joints in that section). It might be a good idea to use the full builds keel drawing to obtain the detail that you are looking for.

Dave,

FSwart is right.  These are simplifed (and slightly modified plans).  This was designed as a beginner's project and thus there are some things not there.   Some of us kept it simple and others embellished it.
