That transom is one wicked looking piece. The tumblehome looks quite challenging. [:-captain]

Carl, thanks, I need to make a jig for the cabin top camber also.

Thanks, Philip

Welcome aboard, Jerry, wander around as you wish no hard hat required.

Frank, yes, it was fun making it. Hope that I have developed the shape right!
I have clamped the transom in place temporary so I can mark and cut the rabbet in the edge for the planking to land in.
All the stanchions will have to be accurately cut to the tumblehome in the way of the transom. Made from 3/32"X 1/16" stock and carved to shape they will be a bit delicate for much sanding







as you can see much fine work is needed to cut in the rabbet. will also need to make the framing of the transom


moving on to more deck beams....

later..

Pete, thanks.

Frank, you are probably right on the amount of work needed for an accurate rabbet. It would be faster to just bevel the plank ends to fit. I will definitely have to cut in and sand in the top of the transom for the main rail/taffrail to sit.

I have shaped the bowsprit to shape out of the 5/16" square beam. It is 5/16" (13.5") from the heel to the stem. then it is straight on the bottom and tapered top and sides to 10" at the step. the bullnose is 8" tapered to 6". It is 22' long, 12 'heel to the stem, 8'-10" to step and 18" long bullnose.



here are the major standing rigging ( the starboard shroud not shown) and the sail on that stay


test fit of the decking which looks like it will land on the line I drew for the intersection of the deck and inner transom face.


I am now working on the knightheads and hawse boards in the bow.

onward....

Carl, sorry if I am using unknown words, if you need explanations just ask please.

Greg, yes, it is a hand full, could be bigger but I am taking some shortcuts.

so here are the rough cut knightheads and hawse boards. After I get the decking in and the windlass built I will be able to drill in the holes for the hawse pipes at the right angles.

here are some pics of the boards:
the starboard piece lost a little off of the front - will fill it back end later








the planking goes on the outside of these.
the figure is a 1:48 scale man from a WW2 model. he is a little small only 5'-0" tall as I am at 1:42.6.

making more deck beams....

Tell Capt. Bligh his command isn't quite ready to set sail. And quite barking orders to that AB Seaman and go below.

PHIL, She's really looking good or should I say sea-worthy.

It's only make-believe

Thanks, guys, but I have ran into a problem. Apparently I did not cut the ends on a square as the false deck has a curve at the ends. I have not come up with a way to measure this droop yet. I donít know even if it is the same on both sides. So, until I figure this out I am at a stand still.
