Hello everyone

I have built ship models since I was 14 years and then it was kits, after my children grown up I started to scratch build The 7 Provincien I started building my model in 2000 in a workshop I had in my garage, but since 2005, work have been down because I divorced and moved abroad. but now when I come back to Sweden I start to build again

This is the first picture i've taken of my ship, I bought my digital camera in April 2001. I order my drawings from Modeller's Boatyards in July 1999 and start planning my building right on when the drawings arrivde, I read three articles in Model Shipwrigt on a way to build the hull vertically on a building board in two half's, so i take same techniques from either artikel and begin to build I build the hull in one dubbel frame and two singel frames one dubbel and two singel and so on in all ca 113 frames,I glued a piece of Abaci on 5 places between every frame to hold the hull together, when the two parts of the hull was finished I put them together on the keel who I have done in a early stage, the keel vas screwed to the building boards from underneath and one support in front and one in the back hold it in place

When the hull was on the keel and in the supports I drilled hole and insert a pinn in two places throw the floor of the frames in the keel in all of the frames,after that I was able to draw in every line I need i.e. upper and lower cills and the sides in all gun ports, the position of the wales and mark the places for every deck on the inside of the hull and so on

Again the same stage of building now I can take apart a block from the hull and remove the Abaci wood who is in between the frames and I prepared every frame, sawing for the gun ports etc after that I glue and pin the frame on its given place on the keel and put the needles back in place on the sides

Next stage was to plank the inside of the hull, here I put some planks in and the clamps for the lower gun deck, the clamps are made in Beech wood. My intentions is to build the ship so close to the real ship as possibly with all decks except for the trossdeck

The wood I used to lay the deck on lower gun deck, Lime wood, was not a god choice, it was to soft, I painted the side and the end of the strips with a marker penn and the ink penetrated the wood, but i dicided that the deck have to stay when nobody could see it after the upper gun deck is in place.
