Medway Longboat by oneslim - 1:24 scale - Bob W - FINISHED


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

 

I would to join this build group of fellow Medway Longboat builders.  I have put my 1:48 scale Longboat on hold so as to better understand the spiling process since the strakes are pre-cut.  I had some difficulty with small gaps with light showing through. 

 

Following are photos of my build.

 

The build board and keel parts laid out.  I have marked the slots in the build board because I got tired of counting them.

Had to use tape to hold the guides in,  they were loose and would fall out.

False Keel parts had 1/32" scrape added when attaching to the keel to center them for the rabbit.

Thanks Chuck.

 

Jeff,  I used a fresh bottle of Elmer's Rubber Cement,  just the smallest amount with a tooth pick.  They just about fall off.  Any residue is erased with off with a white eraser.  Sorry to hear about Your longboat.  Hope You get back on track soon.

Part 2

 

The keel has been coated with Wipe On Poly and glued to the frames.  Then it was protected with blue painters tape.

The stern was stabilized with a clamp and two guides glued to the base.  The transom dose not move while fairing.  Getting close,  still more work to do on fairing.

Almost there,  a little more on the transom.

Lining out after faring down to no char on the frames.  I'm using 1/8" artist tape,  could not find 1/16".  The reference point is the top edge.

Both garboards "nailed" in.  Also showing the spool of 10Lb. mono line used,  got it on Amazon.

Working on planking. 

 

This is Plank 6,  Port,  shaped with heat only.

Plank 10 Port.  Had some difficulty with this plank,  broke the tip aft off twice bending with heat only.  After remaking a second time I soaked in water and mounted on the boat.  Left it over night and it fit just fine then.

Part 6

 

The hull was given a through wipe down with a fresh tack cloth.  Then another wipe down with white sprits.  I'm satisfied so far with the results.

Next will be three or four coats of wipe on satin poly cut 50-50 with white sprits.

 Part 7

 

Well,  I applied three coats of satin wipe on poly that was cut 50/50 with white sprits.  She looks very good but,  I may add one more.  I decided to shape the stands while the hull is still attached to the base.  Used 400 grit sand paper held down with double sided tape.  Very carefully moved back an forth until I had a good fit.
