And so the build starts!

 

I have printed out the keel plans and will start cutting wood for the build. The Keel I will make using  maple

 

The Board is from anouther build, plenty of room for this build!

 

 

 

 

Note: I have removed this first picture because they include a image of the plans that are copyright'd

It was the HMS Druid which started out as a Hahn build but I moved to here to finish, I got the idea for the board fron the old site someone elses build.

 

Took awhile to find as I did not take that many pictures but here is a picture of one of the mast and the ship on the shelf

The keel is started but I need the sided deminisions to start the deadwood at the stearn and the bow.

 

Before I start that I will embed the nuts in the keel to secure to the building board and eventually the final mounting if the model is completed

oops I never put the nuts in the keel and will have to do so now that I have most of the frames installed~!

I have started downloading the plans, WOW! that will take some time but for now I have only down loaded the Keel, and stearn Deadwood and I can see I already have some rework To do on the keel. 

 

How long are the plans access available to me?

Guy, (Is this your name?) yeah it takes a while to download the files. There is a pdf list on "Trition Line's Drawings" that I posted don´t Know when but it is pretty helpful. It´s from the old MSW 1.0. I recomend you to buy lots of folders and put it together in a biger one.

 

One thing. Why you cut straight piece #5 of the keel? the one that meets the stem where the keel actually ends.

 

Good scarfs! Mines are crap.

 

Daniel.

Daniel,

 

Have downloaded all the files for the complete build, yes it tool awhile. There are also some duplicate files that had me a little confused at first, but with all the files you had to upload I can certainly understand.

 

One of the drawings I did not see is the one that sits on top of the keel to separate the frames (for a better name) but I need to go back through them again and see if I missed it

 

Yes Its Guy

 

I went through all the builds and did not see what I though should sit on top of the keel ...... Have I lost my mind!? do I have CRS? chuckle

Guy:

Are you talking about the rising wood? That may be part of the keel itself on the plans. I did not participate in the drawings on the full hull, but on the cross section, we included the rising wood in the keel.

Yes I believe that is what it is called and I could not find this in the drawings and when I went back through the other builds I did not see any that used (rising wood ) I will have to go back and study the plans as I know I saw a build using the rising wood on top ot the keel. I did not see this drawing in the cross section either

That is included in the keel. The keel and rising wood are NOT separate pieces in the Triton build. We designed the keel to be done with the keel and rising wood all together for ease of building. Remember, the framing and structural details for the Triton build are simplified from what you would see on the actual ship. It is still POF, but not the actual POF like the Echo or Swan class builds.

Hello Guy!

 

When I started this Practicum back in 2011 I did make lots of research and studied the plans and everything. I drawed lots of sketches just to explain myself how the hull would work. Then I realized that we are working with plans that are just for this task. An "easy" way to start with the POF scratch. No rising wood, no filling pieces, no diminishing strakes...

 

So I made a decision: Stick to the plans. It is up to us to improve them and add more and more details according to our skills.

 

Believe me, this practicum is far way beyond from where I was especting as a beginer in 2011.

 

 

 

Best wishes.

 

 

Daniel.

The sketches are just that. As you can see there´s not rising wood at all. The sketches are some "thinking" and might be wrong . It´s up to the moderators to erase this post.

I will not worry too much about the rising wood but will definately do a little research on it.

 

Any way back to the keel, not that I have access to the full set of plans I have started my first re-work! Luckly just some additional cutting back of the fore end of the keel. first picture shows keel as first fabricated and the second picture shows the re-work still needing a little smoothing out.

Guy,

 

I use the upload functuon off MSW. It works just beautyful. Have a look at your last post. Perhaps you've uploaded the pictures twice?

Your first keel section looks good. I would redo the false keel. It seems that you have damaged it during your modification.
