Miroslav Posted June 6, 2014 Share #1 Posted June 6, 2014 As I say in introducing myself, I am trying tu build Chinese junk as my first model. I choos it because it seems simple to me (what a mistake), there is no bow, and different sails that looks not too complicate. Earlier, it passed few years I thinking about modelling, but always something happened, a job, some familiar things, and only spent a lot of time reading about it and collecting some free plans from net. We have not here possibility shops where can buy plans, specific wood for modelling and tools, and I know that have to improvize while building. Fortunatly, my grandfather was engraver, and left a lot of small hand tools for metal, specific knifes made before WWII for brass, copper, gold or silver, and I have to use it. I have great garage and workshop, but I decided to work in house, near my PC, also, there is wormer, and the winter is coming.. So, I have not kit complete, but I got lot of materials and Amati plans from one experienced expert here, and first choose very small corner in my room while my wife was very angry. I took the patrt from my office table and put it near the window with fantastic view to my flowers and trees. and.. I started in 21. may. First, I put the scellet without glue, just to watch how it looks like, is the laser cutting precisely. Even and me, nonexperiance amateur noticed that cutting was not good. Ribs 9, 10 and 11 were too deep, and going under the keel. But in plans there is just that dimensions, I compared? There is problem: So I started with improvisations. I Inserted small part a 5 mm long in slot 11, thinking what consequences will be at the end. But, I always have a little help from my assistent I do not know how many photos is limit to one post, and will be continue.. mtaylor, AntonyUK, NenadM and 3 others 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
