Hey Druxey,

 

At the moment I am just laying in store and I havent totally decided yet, as you know I have been working in CAD on my own plans of Indefatigable but they are still a long way from completion, Maybe a different Frigate before tackling the Indy.

 

Sorry Remco :P

Thanks Guys,

 

Druxey - I'm going to spend some time completing fairing the inside of the hull, then align all the toptimbers and get them all to correct height, then remove all of the temp basswood spacers and install new pear ones, that's a good few weeks work for me as I spend a lot of time traveling for work these days, that's the plan anyway.

 

Ben

Hi Ben,

 

I've just caught up with what you've been up to. Well done and congratulations on getting that last frame in.

 

Following Remco's advise/motto is never a bad thing either!

Another addition to the wood stock pile, a couple of billets of nice white Holly stacked on top of my boxwood,

Holly is getting really difficult to obtain here in US, So I get whatever I can when the chances arise.

 

I may have some updates to show on Pegasus next week - Ive been working away a lot lately and the sanding

and fairing of the inside hull is taking quite a bit of time to get really good.

Hey all,

 

Well the internal fairing is pretty much completed so I released the hull from the build board, so I can start external fairing and will also help to complete the internal as I can hold the hull in my lap and be able to access parts that the buildboard made difficult.

I see a lot of sanding in my future!

Looking good, Ben. I see you have included the fillings up to the floor heads. Nice.

Yes, much fun fairing and knuckle bleeding, Ben. Keep applying pencil marks across the hull to pick up the high and low spots while fairing. When all pencil traces are done, so are you.

Thanks Everyone for the likes.

 

Druxey - Yep the fillers were added at the same time as the square frames, I do see some small gaps here and there which will need to be filled.

 

Greg - the pencil method is what I used for internal fairing and it worked well so I will use it for doing the external.

 

Ben

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.
