Recommended Posts

The good thing about my build log is it had just started so won't take long to get back everything, just have to rember where I put the pictures. Will post later tonight!  It's just good to be back.

Here we go.  The cherry wood was given to me by a friend where I work. More than enough for this build and then some. Resized the wood to the thickness I needed and then using 3M spray adhesive, applied the frames to the wood. Cut out all the frames and stored in separate marked bags so I wouldn't get confused :huh: post-63-0-47403100-1360971344_thumb.jpgpost-63-0-55771200-1360971376_thumb.jpgpost-63-0-06807300-1360971395_thumb.jpgpost-63-0-39189000-1360971411_thumb.jpg

Next started the keel, keelson and false keel. Sawed and sanded to size using my Byrnes table saw and thickness sander. When cutting the rabbit I used a razor blade shaped to the size. Before I started scrapping with the blade, since I am doing this in 1:32 scale was able to take a lot of the wast out of the rabbit with the table saw. Then I used the blade to final shape the rabbit.

Mark, Thanks for looking in.

 

Russ Wanted to make sure everything would be square!

 

Bob   Real good friend, says he has about 200 board ft in the attic of a barn for the last 15 or so years. Doesn't know what to do with, so I can get more if needed. He is into blacksmithing (has his own forge, so I throw some old files and stuff his way :)  when I find them.

Pete:

You might consider puting the papered sides facing away from each other in the finished frame. That will make it easier to see the layout lines on both sides of the frame. It will also make it easier to clean off the paper after the frames are glued up.

 Hello Pete i am really pleased to see you have been able to almost completely salvage and restart your  build log, How fortunate you are to have acess to a good supply of cherry. Old files for new cherry seems like a really good deal. I am looking forward to seeing everything "jigged up".

 the forum is quickly coming back to life thank goodness.

Thanks for sharing And also for dropping in on me,

 Kip

Sawdust thank for dropping in. I still have to keep a check on the Sultana guys. I have not gave up on it. It sits on the shelf next to me and I will do a little on it now and then, Will have to restart my build thread on it.

Russ, Bob and Rummy thanks for looking in and the comments. 

I do have a question. I had saved the information from the old msw on treenail size's but I can not seem to find it. Does anyone have a list of treenail sizes (actual Size) that is used in the cross section build.

Right now I am interested in the size to treenail the frames. I have the Book "HMS EURYALUS" by Allan Yedlinsky, and it says on the square frames a treenail size of 1" to 1 1/2" in diameter. Will this hold true for

the cross section???

While looking through some flash drives that I had at work, I found 1 page saved from an original forum on the old MSW about treenail. This reply is credited to Russ. I hope it is okay to post it here in my log, if not let me know and I'll remove it or the moderators can. THIS IS FOR GENERAL USE ONLY AND NOT A HARD AND FAST RULE.

 

"Okay, here is a rough set of dimensions to use for various parts of the model in the three scales.

 

1/48 scale Frames, no 61 bit (.039", 1mm), hull planking, no 76 bit (.020" .5mm), deck beams, knees, bitts, etc, no 68 bit (.031" .8mm), and for securing the frames and the keelson, a no 52 bit (.0625" 1.5mm) will do fine.

 

1/64 scale Frames, no 69 bit (.029" .75mm), hull planking, no 79 bit (.015" .4mm), deck beams, knees, bitts, etc, no 73 bit (.024" .6mm), and for securing the frames and keelson use the same 1/16" diameter bit as used in 1/48 scale. It will work fine.

 

1/96 scale Frames, no 76 bit (.020" .5mm), hull planking, no 80 bit (.0135" .4mm) deck beams, knees, bitts etc, no 76 bit (.020" .5mm) and for securing the frames and keelson, no 61 bit (.039" 1mm)

 

Please, please, please keep in mind these are very rough and very general dimensions. This is a guide, not a set of hard and fast rules. So long as you are close, there should be no big problems. If you do not want to treenail your planking in 1/96 scale, that's fine, but if you do, you might want to use something a bit larger than no 80. Its the builder's choice."

I may be thinking alittle ahead here (alot) but the friend that gave me the cherry wood for 3 used files, just gave me enough maple for decking boards and ceiling :dancetl6:

 

All this cost me was 2 boxs of "Girls Scout Cookies" ($7.00)  not to bad.

 

So far the cost of my build is faily cheap. Hope it stays this way.

That maple looks pretty good. I see some figure it one end of it. That might have to avoided, but I would just suggest careful selection in any event. Make sure the saw blade is sharp. I have found that maple will get burn marks if the blade is anything but sharp.
