H.M.S Trition cross section by Antony - 1/48 scale


Recommended Posts

Hi Pete.

 

I have no idea at the moment. Might follow someone's else's list as metal's I can do but wood is a new ball game for me.

A good friend has just offered the use of his workshop and he is a carpenter and a jolly good one. So will ask his advice also.

My local stockist for modeling timber is cornwallmodelboats?co.uk

Looking forward to learning a lot of new skills with this model.

 

Regards Antony.

 I do like Cornwall They give good service and the prices are good even with the shipping.The wood I got from was great.

 

  Goodby for now  Larry

Hello Anthony. That's a good looking rabbet on the keel piece and I like the contrast between the keel and the false keel. The best of luck to your project.

Welcome aboard Antony!

 

Good Luck! Did you ask for the timber allready. Maybe your friend has some nice wood in his workshop... and lots of machines to get familiar with. I am willing to have my own workshop with lots of wood, oils, jars, botles and that special smell of a carpenter´s room.

 

Best wishes!

 

 

Daniel.

Hi all.

I would love to start the build right now But the boss will not allow me to take over the conservatory.

Thanks for the comments..The wood colour is important to me as I will not be using any paint on wood items.

And the other reason is I need an thicknesser. Looking at the Axminster CT-356 at the moment.

And a small bench saw. Make and model unknown as yet.

 

Regards Antony.
