HMS Triton by Edwardkenway - 1:64 scale

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm doing this as having bought the plans for the cross section I thought I might as well use the full ship plans too.

When I get time I will cut the bulkheads and centreboard. Til then please bear with me as I f I'm not here I will be next door on the cross section. 

Cheers

Hi LS., thanks for looking in.

This one is a bit slow moving at the moment. I have started the cross section.  It's in the group projects for Triton,  then cross sections.

To be honest that is not going any faster but it is a great learning experience. 

Cheers

Hi all, so started to cut bulkheads out but found that I can't get  my trusty coping saw in as there is to much board,  I think I will borrow my dad's jigsaw to rough cut them and then do the precision cut with old trusty. 

Til then cheers.

Hi all, 

The borrowed jigsaw did the job and then had 2 or 3 hours with old trusty cutting the b/h . I've dry fitted them to the keel former and there is quite a bit of tweaking to do.

I must say although it's still using a saw it made a change from cutting the components for the x section frames.

If I'm going to do more of this type of build I got to get a band saw or a scroll saw,  it was a lot of cutting.

Hi Edward, 

Am l correct when l assume you started by just purchasing the plans, all other items you will make/purchase when you get to that relevant stage. 🤔

Best wishes as always, 

The Lazy Saint.

Hello LS, yes I bought these plans from NRG for $5 = £4.34. I hope to make everything but the cannon, rigging yarn, blocks and deadeyes but we will see if I can manage this.

It's going to be quite a challenge but I have no time constrictions on this build, it will be as and when.

Thanks for looking in. 

Cheers 😀
