HMS Triton Cross Section by Derek C


Recommended Posts

Hello Fellow MSW Members 

 

I am going to attempt the Cross Section for my next build , this will be my third wooden boat model .So with that being said , don’t expect a master piece as I am a true novice. It took me a week at least to try and figure out what wood and how much  to purchase :default_wallbash:. I am sure I probably purchased more than needed but I figure what I don’t use on this build ,  I will someday on another I’m sure and to be honest some of what I ordered I didn’t plan on ordering but once I got on the site and started ordering, I couldn’t help it. 

 

 

Here is what I ordered:F954BB37-CD12-4D57-B878-3D45D893437E.thumb.jpeg.18bbfcb83ccc5923f1a078821a3c3f1f.jpeg

 

while I  wait for my wood to arrive I have some teak and figured I’d play around and try my hand at building a cannon as I have never done one before . 

 

First I used a flashlight to trace the parts for the cannon, because I only printed on set and ran out of ink (well at least that’s what it’s telling me ,but seems like I just replaced the darn thing ) and didn’t feel like running to the store and I couldn’t talk the admiral into going.

i placed the print  down on the lens of the flashlight and put a piece of  card stock over it and used a colored pencil to trace the plan, I use a color pencil to be able to see that I didn’t miss anything. With black ink or pencil the image and pencil lines make it hard to see.

i then used exacto knife to cut out template.

using a a small amount of glue I glued the templates to a piece of teak I had already previously prepared to the proper thickness.

Using the scroll saw I cut out the templates in a general shape.B205F66B-B985-4BAD-AC89-369A55C4A64F.thumb.jpeg.5825430eec73e94c1ae37ff0ba7f0539.jpeg

 

I then used files, sanding blocks,and sticks to finish

Then I cut out some bits to make the front and rear axle spindals

 that’s where I’m at for the day .I will continue to work on the cannons while I patiently wait for my wood order .

I hope y’all will follow along on this adventure and help me out along the way :pirate41:

 

Thanks 

Derek

Only a few more days until my wood order arrives and I can start building frames, but for now I started making the  second cannon carriage today using the same technique except I printed a copy of the plan to cut out and use as a template this time . F391BBBF-BA1E-479E-B7B4-1C0B9E04CE33.thumb.jpeg.26433d5ab2415b685864bc4ce4a74114.jpeg

 

Clamping the two pieces together to ensure the pieces wouldl be identical as I filed and sanded to match the template.

 

I also added wheels to the first cannon they are not complete yet but just trying to decide on the overall look .

Sorry Derek.... no idea on the gauge off the top of my head.   Thought there was a set of plans for the guns and carriages.  It might be on the plan?  

 

Here's a thought... go to the very end of this section and find the logs for UWEK  and Scottacus.  As I recall, they were pretty compete and detailed and for a long time UWEK's was the reference.

Shipyard was not very productive this week,work got in the way . But I did make a little progress I cut and shaped the keel. 3816805C-9B56-4575-AEA4-C1892C641ABE.thumb.jpeg.635d7bc203ca5063c23fb8f1f68d4d3f.jpeg999697B0-E970-4416-91B5-76616305EAB7.thumb.jpeg.f90b34d59e65abc4916abcc0893bb060.jpeg

 

and i cut out the templates for  the framing and started gluing them on a piece of 3/16 “x4”x24”  red oak .

i will finish gluing them them up today and start cutting them out on the scroll saw . I will wait to start gluing them until I go to the hardware store and pick up a few sheets of glass to ensure the frames are straight .

 

thanks for looking in

Today I did the keelson and false keel . The keel is made of red oak the false keel is blood wood,and the keelson is cherry.32E0145A-2EA6-49A6-B2B1-7D65DC8D58D3.thumb.jpeg.7ef9d11d7ed08b4cb71844d1a1c97995.jpeg

 

i also rough cut the frames , all at once . I will go back and trim them up and sand them down one section at a time starting with 5 and working my way to c . Not for any special reason just the heading  I have chosen .5CB43416-AE33-4888-A11F-425BFF933283.thumb.jpeg.7089170da71452a0e3824c6d092d562a.jpeg
