Thanks guys. This photo completes the work shown in instructional photo #2 and involves the framing in the stern.

Bob,

Your photo gives a sense of the complex beauty of a shipís hull.

You gotta' love computers, and laser cutting thingies.

I never could understand why the shipbuilders of that era thought the bow had to be so blunt. The stern of the ships had such graceful lines.

Bob, from bow too stern, she's shaping up nicely!

Bob, maybe I missed it, what is the thickness of that material?

I was wondering the same thing. Does it have to do with the underwater profile? Purpose, size and speed requirements?

Blunt bows usually meant more room inside, like for cargo, or whale oil, military stores, etc. If
speed was a requirement, look at the clippers. They had very sharp bows.

Thanks for your comments guys. I have found a few moments here and there to work on the ship
model. None of these additions will show on the finished model, they are all sub layers to give
form to the ship and include the under deck and the panels to give smooth flow to the hull
planking. I see a suggestion in the instructions that says you can putty over the hull and sand it
smooth but I don't think I will do that.



I must say that there is just a small section on general instructions in English, all else
is in Polish. There are captions on so many photos that I wish I could read.

Bob

Bob, try Google Translate for those cryptic, but interesting captions.
1. If you use Chrome for your browser simply type google translate in the Search Google space next to the full color Google logo and hit enter.

(If you don't use Chrome you can first go to Google, then type google translate to get to the same place.)

2. Either way you should see something like this:

In this screen capture you can see where I typed "google translate" in the space next to the color google logo.

3. Below that is a box that says Detect language in blue and next to that a small blue arrowhead. Click on the arrowhead and you'll see a long list of languages to choose from.

4. Click on Polish.

5. To the right of that you will see the name of some language, also in blue. In this example it happens to say Irish. Click on the blue arrowhead next to that and choose English from the list that appears. You will see this:


5. Below, where it says Enter text you can type in the Polish caption.
OK, that will require a little fiddling because the Polish alphabet has some diacritical marks (accents, dots and stuff) over some letters that will change the meaning of a word if you leave those marks off, but here is a link that explains how to add those marks to the text you are entering:

https://yourbusiness.azcentral.com/enter-accent-marks-google-translator-6845.html

To get started give it a try with a short, simple caption and see how it works. It may sound complicated at first, but remember when you first tried to post a photo on the forum?.. :)

Powodzenia! (Polish for "Good Luck!" using Google Translate

Bob,

I was wondering how you were going to get nice, smooth planking. Your model is literally taking shape.

The sublayer looks smooth as-is.

Mike
