HMS Pegasus 1776 by Trussben - 1:48 - Swan class sloop based on TFFM


Recommended Posts

Work continues on the internal framing and mast steps. Im using a flexible Holly battern for marking out the height of the lower deck beam clamp in the picture.

 

Im not going to follow the exact planking expansion for all the internal stuff that will disappear when the lower deck framing is installed - captains choice for a simpler and cleaner look to show more framing.

Lovely work, Ben. You'll be happy to know that your meticulous work will be only partially visible once the lower deck is in place and invisible after the upper deck is framed in (even if unplanked. But if you're of the mindset that every joint should be perfect (you obviously are) even if the detail will be hidden later on your model will be stunning.

Here are the lower deck beams cut and shaped to length and temporarily installed so as to check positioning. I may remake a couple of them to get a better fit against the hull.

You may also be able to spot the transom sleepers at the far end of the picture which still need their bolts to be complete.

 

Happy Holidays to MSW.
