Beautiful, even at this early stage.

By the way, 9/32Ē to the foot is not an unusual scale in Europe. Itís simply 1:43.

finally, have time to resize and post!
have all frames in and now am sanding down to the lines and fairing overall.
pics of the framing:

frames laid out ready to cutout


a view with the transom sitting in place


the aft support is there to hold the transom at the correct angle, the transom is not glued yet as I still need to sand the correct bevels around it.
a nice side shot with rudder added





closeup


a quick sketch showing difference between model and real


so, sanding away, when faired will start placing the deck beams and the deck structures sides.

enjoy

will still need some sanding to fair in the topside tumblehome but in order to get to there I need to get the deck beams in and the bulwark stanchions made and installed. so, made a jig to cut the camber that is in the deck beams. Have cut the pieces that make up the Great beam and step in the deck. This would be a single block of wood but it was easier to make 4 pieces than to try and cut the steps in a block. Pics:

the 3/32" thick beam material slid in place ready to cut in the curve of the camber


the curve cut in


the beam cut to the correct height


the 4 pieces making up the Great beam



than over view


a wider view


the fore deck sits on the lower front step and the aft deck sits on the rear step.


so now more deck beams fore and aft.
