I think you are very brave Ben. I've got enough on my hands without adding on extras. But its a great idea and I shall watch with great interest.

Thanks Rusty.

 

Fred - it’s really not that complex once you have it planned in your mind what you are trying to achieve.

 

I hope to have the reveal completed this week as I’m installing frames and treenails as we speak.

Well here is my port side frame reveal completed, in the end it turned out to be 23 frames that i could fit between the bulkheads.

I did the treenails with 20lb black line and reversed the pattern aft of the deadflat frames.

 

I'm so happy with how this came out in the end that I'm considering building one on the starboard side as well but we shall see.

Its very timely and good to see your config.  I am slowly drafting the next project which is a fully framed Winnie cross section.   Its going to be a very nice subject.  It will have 20 frames.

Wow Ben - That looks awesome.  I love the wood choice also.  It is going to add some nice contrast.   You really have me wondering if I should give it a try on one side.  I think it adds a lot to the model and draws attention.

Beautiful work.....

Hey Ben.  I see you decided to do the framing on the other side.  Everything looks really good.     

This is going to be a beautiful build.   Keep up the great work....

Thought I’d share a picture of the plank bending station that I made, very similar to Chucks with a few refinements of my own, it’s screwed onto the end of the build table of Winchelsea to keep everything close and together ready for when the time comes to add the two strakes below the Wales and when bottom planking really gets started.

I have completed installation of the Ebony wales, black strake in Boxwood and the sheer cap in AYC.

 

The Two strakes below the wales and the rest of the lower planking will be made from white american Holly as you can see, I like the contrast against the super black of the ebony.

 

I now have to begin fairing the internal bulkheads down to the proper thickness and then start lining off the lower hull - It will be a while until the next update.

Beautiful work, Ben! What is that interesting looking angle tool called that you are using check the angle of the transom. I've never seen one of those and it look very useful.
