Mike Y Posted May 19, 2014 Share #1 Posted May 19, 2014 (edited) It is second build, first one was a similar model - English Pinnace This time I will make it slower, no rush. And will try to avoid all mistakes done on Pinnace I will use kit details for frames and keel, and boxwood for everything else. No paint, no stain, only natural wood colour. No friesers, and no paintings on a transom also. Instead, it would be planked and treenailed. Sorry for skipping the decorations, I just prefer the simple design. For a start - traditional photos of every longboat builder - parts sanded from laser char, keel and falsekeel, simple building jig to hold it straight. First pinnace mistake avoided - bevel on a false keel is smaller, different angle, to gently handle a plank on an angle specified by frames. Sounds obvious, but on a pinnace I made a bevel with a wrong angle, and there was a small gap between garboard plank and keel. First impression - it is sooooooo small! Very nice scale, it is big enough to make it with a good precision (I hope), but fits into a palm. Should be very cute when done Edited May 19, 2014 by Mike Y maddog33, gjdale, fatih79 and 5 others 8 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
