Great to see all that sawdust Mark - a sign of real progress! :)

 

You did measure twice, right?.................. ;)

 

Measure twice???  post-76-0-21564500-1397604843.gif  I thought it was cut twice.  Oops... :blush:

 

Ah, the smell of sawdust in your shop must of been intoxicating!

 

Ben

 

Indeed it was.  And beer when I finished, even more so.

Let's see if I got this right... first we make lots of little pieces of wood from big pieces, then we make big pieces of wood from the little pieces so we can cut and shape and make little pieces of wood from those big pieces.   er.. right?  :D  :D  :D    Ok..  I think I got it.  ;)  I finished making all the bigger pieces of wood from the small pieces.   All 60 frame blanks are ready to go.  

 

Now to start cutting the frames from them. post-76-0-04789100-1398831588.gif

We do generate a lot of sawdust, don't we?   I dump mine in the biowaste recycle can when the shop vac gets full.  I'd be afraid to figure out how much I spent just on the sawdust.  :D  :D

Great sawdusting, Mark!  Now that you've made big pieces of wood out of the little pieces that you made from big pieces, you can proceed to make littler pieces! :D

You are now entering the eerie zone.  You will now saw and sand and waver.  Did you sand to much did you cut correct.  You are now starting down the path of no return.

I think that you've got the process just right Mark, except that you left out the last step -- those last small pieces that you make will be combined into a really big piece.

Mark, Dan, thats not sawdust, those are little tiny granules of Retirement Induced Contentment and Happiness! Your R.I.C.H!

And now a question. Are each of your frames made of two layers with the joins off set or one layer with half lapped joints? I enlarged the photo and for the life of me I cant tell.

Yes, that's the process as I remember it.  I actually learned it from Julia Child.  You take a whole turkey, cut it into 22 pieces, cook it then patch it back together with toothpicks so it looks nice before you slice it.  Same with aeromodeling......screw/glue 850 odd pieces into one big one then put it in a flat spin for the 're-kitting' operation. 

 

Press on, mate......it's getting interesting :)

Thanks for the likes and comments.

 

Sam,

Two layers with the joins offset.  Hahn provides a plan for the blank layout which I think can be seen under the blanks.  I hang onto those also just in case...

 

David,

I was on the path of no return a long time ago...  :D

 

Augie,

I think I found out why my aeromodeling and flying didn't work.  I never perfected the flat spin.  Mine spiraled in...

 

 

It will probably be a while before the next update (or not).  I'm going to cut out all 60 frames first before trying to mount them in the jig permanently.  I've found that doing "production run" methods on things is keeping me focused and allows for re-making parts easier.

So, from full time work, to retirement, to working on a production line eh Mark?................

 

Can't wait to see what rolls off the end of the line! :)

Nice progress, Mark, but I am confused - are you at the step now where you make little pieces into bigger pieces or big pieces back into little pieces?

Wayne,

I'm at the step where take the re-made big pieces into small pieces with curves.  

 

Michiel,

You are correct. There should be something we can make from all the sawdust...  maybe mix it with glue and do sculptures?

 

Grant,

Luckily, I didn't do production line work when I worked... :)   But there is a lot of satisfaction in turning out a piece, checking it, and putting it on the "good" pile.  I had my share of "oh crap" pieces that are in the scrap box, but not as many as I thought I would.

Just a light update... been working on frames.  Have several cut and test fitted and all reference points marked.

 

The pics below show how I'm solving the issues that plagued me on Version 1.0.   

 

Since all measurements are referenced to the build board, I've added a tab to each frame to securely locate that point (green arrow). After I cut in that part of the frame, I fit it and re-measure, re-refrence the other points. 

 

One set of points is where the deck clamps need to be so the red arrows show those.  1/8" deck beam, a 1/8" clamp and 1/16" inch plank will put the deck height were it needs to be.  This particular frame is #1 and thus, there's three decks.. lower, gun, and forecastle.

 

The blue arrows reference the outside dimensions of the gun port cutout for the sill to sit properly.  I'm using a 1/8" sill and when they're fitted I'll finesse them to be exact.

 

The black arrows point to the line for the wales.  These are small cuts into the frame and filled with colored glue to hightlight  They only demarcate the transition line from wale to planking and vice versa.

 

The black arrow with the white fill is the cutline for when this beast is finally cut from the build board.  A top rail will sit on top of this line.

 

I'm going slow and careful to avoid dong wrong what I did the last time.

You really do have a plan this time Mark!! I'm sure everything you learned in V1.0 will give you a great headstart with V2.0.

I'm just stumbling along from piece to piece with my Pegasus.

Looks like you've got it this time.  Arrows look like the strategy for the Battle of the Bulge!

Ben,

I think that's what I did with the first version.   I'm more organized this time.

 

Pat,

That's what the pictures are for... printed out and close at hand. :)

 

Augie,

Battle of the Bulge?  Let's think naval.... Jutland?  Trafalgar?

 

Thanks Sherry and also to everyone for the likes.

Now it's a true engineering approach!

The future deck clamps (red arrows on a first photo) woud be removed later, or they would carry some weight?

About the NRG

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. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
