Well Augie, you DID it and it came out great - well done mate! It's a fun little project on its own isn't it??

Now just get that deck planking down and you will of passed my Confed and then I can look to you and your log for advice when I finally get back to mine! ( just having too much fun with framing on Pegasus for that to happen any time soon but you never know, your work may spur me into action!)

Thanks to all for the comments and 'likes'.

 

BEN-  turnabout is fair play.  Of course if I work at my usual (slow) pace and in summertime mode, you may just stay out in front for quite a spell.

Just repeating what everyone else has already said - WOW! Excellent work - Chuck's method of making the great cabin floor certainly produces wonderful results

Hi Augie, beautiful work! I love the parquet flooring and thank you for adding the pics on how you did it. I've been seeing it finished in other logs but I never could figure out how it was done.

great looking flooring Augie.........you mean to tell me that all this time I was taking the long way around! I never thought to do it that way! that would sure beat playing with individual tiles.....but for what I did, I guess that was the road I had to take ;) I'll have to try this out :) :) thanks to Chuck as well ;)

 

nice overall look at your progress.....I've been out of the loop {so to speak}. you've really made some terrific progress. look forward in seeing the deck work!

Hi Augie,

 

That is a very good job on the great cabin floor  and doing it with hand tools to boot.  I'm glad you did it!

The hour counting is interesting too. People ask me how long it took to build and all I can say is years.

Now once you are done I'll have a clue. Thanks! :)

Sorry to say that summer activities have taken a toll on shop time.  I did manage to complete one small piece of deck furniture -- the rudder trunk in the Great Cabin.

 

The kit supplies laser cut parts, some in duplicate:

Assembly of the basswood parts is fairly straightforward and the usual pre-stain, diluted Golden Oak stain, WOP and dullcoat was used .  The brass hinges were blackened with Blacken-it.

The trunk sits in the rear of the cabin tight against the stern lights:

Will be carrying out some deck finishing tests prior to laying the deck itself.

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.
