Thank you for the happy B day. It was a good day but not so good the next.

 

I'll take a look at Ed T's Naiad

 

Thank you for the help.

Hello:

 

Yes I know it's been a long time.  Almost got all the repairs done from my poor docking procedures and I'll post some pic later, but I have a few questions on the Garboard Strake Please.

 

TFFM say's to measure from the book at 1:96 scale and converting it to 1:48 scale I come up with a width of 7.5mm. Or 355.4mm (14inch)

English Man of War 1650- 1850 say's 2/3's the molded depth of the keel.  I measured the plans and from the false keel to 2/3 of it, it comes out about the same 7.5 mm.

This seems narrow to me as the rest of the planking  5mm. 

 

May be I have every thing way out of whack.

I have to fix the Gripe  before posting some pic made it a little large to come even with the false keel. Not bad to fix just one more beginner mistake.

 

Thank you

If I can remember how to put the pic in order .

I have made repairs from bad docking procedures. But I keep for getting there are two sides to look at and this is the bad side of the bow.

Dumb me I figured out the garboard dimensions. Hopefully when all the clamps com off there will be a straight line.

I have finished the garboard and it looks pretty much straight I hope time will tell.  It looks like it doesn't fit right it does just made it too thick clamped too tight made dings.  I love sanding.

 

Cut planking to day don't think there's enough but it a start.

 

Thank you Tim

Happy planking. The best advise I ever got was by a member who told me to treat each plank as if it's its own model since no two are alike.

Looking Good TJ!

 

Did you milled the planks at your shop? How long are they?

 

Hope to post something this weekend...

 

Happy modelling!

Rich   I'll remember that, sounds like good advice.

 

Harvey  No and yes.  I don't have a shop, like a commercial one, but I do it at home, well in the kitchen dinning area. This is done with the Byrnes tools.

First is to resaw the timber to manageable widths and lengths something like ( planking) 7mm X 70-90mm X L? Not very good at this yet, think I need a beater band saw or learn how to use this one.  Then mill the timber down to 5mm then cut to length 152mm (scale). It's something like in real measurements 12" X 24' U S .  I don't know how long 24' or 1' is in meters. Then cut (using a thin slitting blade) the thickness to 2.5mm which is a little thick left for sanding and lumps and bumps.  The width is milled first so that the sides are always parallel and there is always a side to work from for beveling or what ever needs to be don't to fit. Little sanding or none is needed to the glue side and of course the out side will be sanded when finished. This way works for me. Of course if someone has a beater way please let me know.

 

I did put the straight edge up to the garboard and at a couple of joints a little sanding was needed and then it was straight. It was a happy surprise.

Lining Out

    Well spent most of the day off and on making  battens of various sizes and kinds, glue and tape, nothing worked for me couldn't get them to lay flat spaced right moving them around to get the space to look right and stuck again was to say the lest a mess.  :angry: So taking some advice I went to line and double sided tape and in about half hour I was done well I think I'm done. I'll put some watered down white glue on to hold them in place better.

 

What do you think will this work. Do they look OK.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

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. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
