Download the materials list for each chapter of the Winnie project

Recommended Posts

Listed below are the materials you will need to complete each chapter.  You will notice that they are each broken down into three categories.

 

- Laser cut parts and materials available for this chapter from Syren Ship Model Company.   Not all of the parts will be available laser cut for each chapter as this is basically a scratch/semi scratch project.  This list details what you get should you buy the laser cut parts.  For example,  there are no bulkheads and false keel or ply parts for sale laser cut.  You will need to buy the required sheets of 1/4" plywood sheets and cut your own parts using a scroll saw.  Depending on how this goes...a separate plywood laser cut package will be made available in the future but we want to encourage some scratch building with this project.

 

- Wood and materials you will still need if you do buy the laser package for each installment.  Since this isnt a kit, in most cases there will still be additional wood strips and sheets needed.  For example, upward of 300 wood strips of various sizes will need to be milled or bought to plank the exterior of the hull in installment two.

 

 

 

I nice checklist has been developed for each chapter of the project.  Download that here

 

All laser cut parts and other fittings can be bought here at Syren Ship Model Company.

The laser cut package for the first chapter is now in stock.   I should have the second chapter also in stock by Sunday, but maybe even tomorrow.   Keep in mind that in some laser cut packages you will also get some milled Cedar stripwood.  If there arent that many needed I will just include them in the laser kit for that chapter.   So buying this 1st installment you will get everything you need to finish the skeletal framing of the hull other than the Ply bulkheads.   This should get everyone up and running quickly.

 

The 2nd installment will not have any stripwood......its all basically hull planking for the exterior of the hull. You will need to mill those yourself.

 

I will let you know if any stripwood is included when I release each installment and it will also be mentioned on your chapter checklist for materials.

I have been corresponding with a lot of you folks who signed up.   Many of you will be using the laser cut cedar parts which is awesome.  In fact I have sold 20 first installments already.  But it wasnt clear how many cedar sheets you would need to buy so you can mill your strips for Chapter two.   I listed the number of strips needed but not how many sheets would be needed to mill them.  Remember that it all depends on your saw and how thick your blade is.  But if you are like me and have a .030 kerf blade to rip your strips, I have reworked the materials list for chapter two.  It still lists the sizes and numbers of strips you will need.  But now I have listed the number of sheets you will need to mill them.

 

Please have a look and let me know if it is understandable.

 

Another interesting point.  Many of you have asked to ship the two laser cut installments in one box to save on shipping.  This is what I have been doing if you buy them at the same time obviously.   But after selling 20 of these, not one of you have bought any cedar sheets which would have also fit in the same box and saved you so much more on shipping.  So if you are building it in cedar, dont forget to buy the planking sheets you need for chapter two.......those are the two inch sheets I am selling.  You have to mill a lot of planking strips.  Also you will need one regular width 1/16" cedar sheet for the caprail at the bow.

 

You may also be interested in the fact that those cedar sheets will cost you about $48 so you can mill your strips.

 

Had I milled them for you....all 350 strips for chapter two, it would have cost you about $260 for the labor.   So this is the way to go.  I sure am glad I dont have to mill the 7,000 cedar strips that would have been needed for those first 20 packages I sold.  That would be insane.   Thats how many I would have actually needed to mill.  Crazy.

“For example,  there are no bulkheads and false keel or ply parts for sale laser cut.  You will need to buy the required sheets of 1/4" plywood sheets and cut your own parts using a scroll saw.”

 

I am confused, so what are the $200 bulkhead set available on Syren?

you can buy those seperately but they are not included in the chapter one installment.  I seperated them out so folks who wish to cut their own can do so and then buy the cedar or cherry parts only for that chapter.

The Cherry version of Installment 1 is now available and in stock.  In addition, laser cut basswood brackets to hold your false keel straight and keep it from twisting are also in stock.  You get 3 pairs of basswood brackets, but the screws and washers are not included.  You will have to get those on your own.

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.
