US Brig Syren by Shaunzy - Model Shipways - 1:64 Scale

Recommended Posts

I'm just starting the Model Shipways brig Syren.  I spent 3 weeks reading thru the Chuck Passaro practicum and feel ready to go.  I pre-fitted bulkheads onto the former and immediately spotted a problem. 

 

When I line up the laser guidelines on the BF with those on the bulkheads, the "tee" intersection for the deck is not always on point. Sometimes, the bulkhead is higher, lower or dead-even with the deck line on the bulkhead former. So ... what is the proper way to compensate for these "misalignments"? Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Shaunzy,

 

I don't have a good answer for you but at least something to check on:

 I have (for historical reasons) 2 bulkhead formers and 2 sets of bulkheads.  In both cases I find the scribe lines are right on - no adjustments required.  The only way I can get a discrepancy is by putting a bulkhead in the incorrect slot.  Perhaps if you include a couple of pictures showing the problem we can figure out a fix.

I think I would go with getting the deck lines flush.That will get a smooth deck. However why don't you put the decks flush and use a batten to check the fairness of lines on the hull.

Like Heronguy says, check to make sure your bulkheads are in the right slot. My laser marks were spot on. Also don't forget to harden the station part of the bulkhead with CA as the laser marks are cut way too deep,making them very fragile.

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.
