HMS Triton (cross section) by McSpuds - 1:32


Recommended Posts

Here we go....  I have finally got back in the saddle again. Although my experience in POB or POF is not much, I do have extensive experience with scratch building 1/144 scale WWI and WWII vessels for RC.

 

I joined Chuck's Syren build years ago and loved it, but I had to eventually drop the build after a time. 

 

When I get this one completed I hope to build cross section that includes a mast section. One of my favorite builds in the past I have seen included a cross section with a couple of marines in the crows nest, firing back down  into the melee.

 

Like other new builders, I have been looking at some of the other builds and I am definitely a little intimidated! I look forward to seeing how well I can do this.

 

Not sure, but here is a quick question, is it possible to move the cross section forward or aft to include a mast? and how would I perform that?

Just a little guidance needed on files before I print most.

 

I printed two Frame sheets.  I used no "fit to sheet" option and 100%.

Two sections are different scale. I am assuming that the 0DoubleFrame64, selected above, is WHAT?  it definitely is not the same scale as the 0DoubleFrameComponent481, of which I think is 1:48 scale at 100%

 

The KeelParts481 is the same scale as the 2nd file.  So where did this 0DoubleFrame64 come from? and what is it used for?

The 0DoubleFrame64 is for a baseline if you were to build this at 1:64.  The 3 numbers at the end of the drawings "481" are for the 1:48 build which this project was designed for.   The "64" is for reference only as such.

 

For 1:48, there's basically two drawing for every frame: a "DoubleFrameComponent481" and "DoubleFrameAssembly481" is used.

 

Edit:  Print not at 100% but "Actual Size".  After printing, use the scale bar at the "bottom" or "side" of the plans to verify.

 

I hope this helps.

Just a reminder then that the wood list I made is for 1:48, so if you go bigger you will need to remeasure and make a new list..... which would probably be a nice addition to to forum and give you something to work on until wood is available! 😉

To be sure on my scale, and on proper plan size when printed... I am not sure if the plans are metric or standard,

 

The plans for the Triton are 1:48, so....  On each sheet, The distance between any given number on the "scale in feet" diagram on each frame sheet should relate to the actual scale of model. IE...  If 1:48, the distance between #1 and #2 should be 1/4" ?

If true then scales are as follows?

 

1:48  - 1/4" between numbers

1:32 - 3/8" between numbers

1:24 - 1/2" between numbers

 

correct?

I am not sure yet on scale, but I will go a little bit larger than 1:48. My Arthritis doesnt like stuff too small.  I will definitely try to make a list for the larger scale. At least in sheets.  I have a good mini table saw to rip my stock.  If the two sources here in the US stay closed too long, I will have to buy larger stock and invest in a drum thickness sander.

Made a trip to my printer today.  I wanted to get the plans printed on their equipment because it would give me a chance to look at the scale I wanted.

 

WOW is about all I can say about 1:24....  

 

I had the 1st frame printed in three scales, 1:48, 1:32, and 1:24.  After seeing the size, I have decided on 1:32

Now that I have the scale picked out, time to figure out sizes and types of wood.  I hope somebody out there can help me with the amounts needed.....  this is going to be so fun.
