Chaperon by Terry O'Neill - Model Shipways - Plank on bulkhead

Recommended Posts

The hull on this model was very easy to put together. I would recomend it for someone wanting to start out on plank on frame modeling. Just be sure that all bulkheads are square when gluing and file everything for a flush fit. Then fair the framework before applying the planks. A little filler and some sandpaper and it looks like it should. I left it a little rough when sanding so that the planks would show thru after painting. I am thinking about going over the scored planks on the bulkheads because the scored lines on them don't show up as much as I want them to.

Time to update this build a little. One of the problems I have with useing a dark stain on the deck is that the lines for placement of the bulkheads have dissappeared. :huh: tried to place them even and checked the other parts in order to locate them in the proper place.post-5579-0-21297500-1377442924_thumb.jpgpost-5579-0-23969400-1377442949_thumb.jpg

Hope it works out ok later. may have to adjust.

seems to be a problem with the way the small bulkheads are depicted on the drawings. It seems to me that they should be placed outboard to cover the gap instead of toward the inside. If nobody has any reason I think I will install them to cover the gaps.
