AntonyUK Posted September 16, 2013 Share #1 Posted September 16, 2013 (edited) Hello. I have been asked to construct a Model to show the inside of a Ship. I have chosen to build the HMS Victory at a large scale of 1/36.90 Having got permission to use the plans from :- http://www.mountainhaven.com/VictoryXCP/PDFbin/Frame_Sta_( .pdf http://www.mountainhaven.com/VictoryXCP/PDFbin/Frame_Sta_0.pdf http://www.mountainhaven.com/VictoryXCP/PDFbin/Frame_Sta_3.pdf A previous topic regarding plans. http://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/2885-large-scale-cross-section-drawings/#entry79890 I have redrawn the plans and added bits and made the drawings slightley more accurate. I am using adobe illustrator. The nice thing about using Illustrator is that it is vector drawn so it can be scaled up to any size. I am printing mine on A1 this gives me the scale of 1:36.90 The construction of this model will consist of five frames on each side. The Keel is make from mahogany. This will have holes for pining the frame guides. And the Garboard plank cutout. And false copper pins/rivets. The two frame guides are fixed to the keel. The frames are inserted into the frame guides and jig'ed to hold them at the correct shape and distance. I have also included the curvature of the hull into the model. The clamping blocks have a curve in to allow for the hull curvature. The clamping blocks will remain in place until I need to remove them for planking. The dummy frames will be added to the ends of the hull. I will use 4mm basswood for the dummy frames. Next I will plank the exterior. Then its building up the deck by deck. Orlop deck beams drawing.
