The Hayling Hoy 1760 by Stuntflyer (Mike) - 1:48 scale

Recommended Posts

I thought it might be a good time to do some catching up. Hard to believe it's been 4 months since my last post.

 

In preparation for adding the lower platform clamps, I installed a beam recessed to fit around the inner post. I will use this to align one edge of the aft platform clamp

Only one side of the hull will be planked. The other side (open side) will only need two short clamps that represent the length of each platform both fore and aft. Measuring from the draught onto a balsa template made it easy to locate the lower platform position.

Here is the aft platform clamp installed after using the same method. Clamping was tricky.

I have actually made more progress than what is shown here. However, the lower platform clamp stills needs to be added on the planked side of the hull. I'm waiting for some deep reach clamps to arrive before I install it. This and more to come soon!

I just finished the port side platform clamp. The clamp was held in place with Wolfcraft clamps which can go deep into the hull. After gluing the aft end of the clamp, another balsa template was used to set the position of the forward end of the clamp.

You'll notice that I have been fairing the exterior hull. For the most part it is done. Just need to do a bit more work at the stern. Also, I left a 1/2" or so of extra thickness at the top timbers. After the Forecastle deck clamp and stringer in the waist are attached I will final sand the top timbers to an even thickness along the hull.

Does anyone know where to buy the Wolfcraft MT70 clamps in the US? 

Thanks,

Bessey makes a near-identical clamp available on Amazon. I haven't tried them but uses other Bessey clamps for larger woodworking and love them.

Mike,


Are you using the graphite paper transfer method for all the necessary parts that need to be copied from the plans?  Or did you use a copy machine to make copies?


Interested in hearing how you transfer your templates to wood to be cut.

Thanks

Shawn,

 

I started out using graphite paper as a transfer method. By the time I started work on the frames, I switched over to Elmer's School Glue and plan drawings which were made from a printed copy. There are times when graphite paper comes in handy, like when I transfer a scarph joint shape. So, both work, just depends on the application.

The shop has been a busy place lately. In preparation for the quarter deck clamp/stringer in the waist and Forecastle deck clamp install, it was necessary to remove the small temporary filler pieces between each frame. My method is to wrap the fillers (3-4 at a time) with a moist paper towel and apply a hot clothes iron to the surface of the paper towel. The steam penetrates and loosens the joint. Needle nose pliers can then be used to remove each piece. Final sanding of the exterior hull will be completed later.

Using this height gauge, vertical measurements were taken from the shear plan at various locations and transferred to the interior hull. The thin boxwood strip was glued to the gauge with CA and pushed through between the frames, so tic marks could be added.

The quarter deck clamp which becomes the stringer in the waist is installed above the upper deck clamp.

The two forecastle deck clamps were added today. They sit below the stringer at the aft end which allows the forecastle deck beams to sit flush with the top edge of the stringer. At this stage the hull is quite strong.

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.
