This build looks amazing. I have the kit on my shelf waiting for me to finish up a couple projects. I can't wait to get started and this log will be a big help. You did a fantastic job on the deck in particular.

Thank you Bobby, for the nice comment.

She is a nice build, sometimes I have stayed true to the instructions other times other sources have been to help. 

Right now I am in stand still due other commitments. Looking forward to get going again,  and also seeing your build log.

I have finally been able to work on my dear Bluenose.

Starting up where I left off wasn't to hard. A light clean up of the work-area and I was ready again.

Creating the Gammon iron for the bowsprit was easier than I thought, using the plywood from bulkheads and false keel, I had the right thickness and with a bowsprit ready shaped I clamped it down and used a plier to get the angles.

The aft hatch was created with a center block and strips on the side. The sides are taller to sit the umber top piece.
Again this will be natural colored just like the other hatch.

I had a lot of thoughts around the main cabin, and finally decided to make it out from solid basswood.

I am so glad having Byrnes thickness sander, to get the material down to right thickness before applying any roofmaterial.

In order to get the cabin shaped correctly I started hollowing it out, to get some walls.

More chiseling is to be done.

This will also allow to create the port and starboard skylights.

Placing a coarse sandpaper over the area where the cabin is to be located I was able to create uniformed "walls".

I figured out how to do this, hopefully the video clip will work at your end too. Did a test prior uploading, and it worked on my side.

Nice to see them all marching into place, Per.  Now what spell did you use to get them to do that?  :)

 

The finish looks very good too!

I just told them, get to your positions and get in 😂.

It's a simple photo trick everyone can do. I used ACDSee video software to create the sequence. Each move is one frame, then it's just a matter of time of display for the frame. It's a fun feature.

I can create a tutorial if someone wants to know how I did it. I won't say mine is the best, but it was my first try.

I’m still not sure why you had to thin the bulkheads. Could you provide some further explanation? I have not seen that done on other model builds of this ship. Getting ready to start this build myself so just want to understand the why.

 

thanks,

 

John

John,

I am sorry but, I would appreciate if you could list the post number so I can find it easier.  Because I can't recall anything about thinning the bulkheads.

 

Thanks for asking.

Per, if I may.  I suspect John is referring to the tops of the bulkheads that become some of the deck stanchions.  My recollection is that the kit-provided bulkheads were thicker than the stanchion dimension, and that is the reason for thinning the top of the bulkhead above where the decking is laid, to make those tops the same thickness as the stanchions.

 

For my build (many years back) I simply cut off all the bulkhead extensions and installed new stanchions above the deck from end to end.

 

If I'm wrong, John will post a reference to the post he is talking about, and we'll move on from there :)
