General Triton question: carling & ledge dimensions

Recommended Posts

Just a quickie: am I right in assuming that the height of the carlings is about half the height of the beams, and that the height of the ledges is about half that of the carlings? (I'm working on the lower deck, but assume the dimensions would be the same for the gun deck).

 

It's just that I can't see any heights referred to in the plans, and I thought I'd better make sure!

 

If you want to give me the dimensions in full scale inches, that's ok as well!

 

Thanks in advance for any input.

Thanks, Mark. I also use the drawings direct from the pdfs when cutting, but I just can't see where on the drawings the carlings and ledges are shown in cross-section, i.e. height or depth. I can see length and breadth, but not height. So I assumed half the beam height for carlings (about 2mm) and half the carling height for ledges (about 1mm).

 

I can't see that it matters, but thought I'd ask just in case there is a 'correct' answer.

Look at the other build logs then would be my advise.   I hope you can get an answer.  You might also ask this in the Building, Framing area.

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.
