Hello. I originally started this build as part of another thread.

http://railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=53025

I've now decided to separate the builds, to stop confusion. The basic hulls are the same, so above link will tell you how I did those.
But this one has a round stern, so done a bit different. So here's a recap, before I progress.
Regards Rob

Deck with rounded stern


As I've made the back on this one round, I cant use the wider planks to go around as they're not long enough to curve around. (see previous hulls). And wouldn't want a join in the middle of a curve anyhow.

So will use 3 rows of the narrower planks, and join then to the wider one later. This will take a bit more time, so I don't break them.

Soaked them in hot water, and slowly bent them around some tubing. They seem to hold the curve then.
Have broken a couple.
Then gluing small sections at a time.





With one side piece on




Other side piece on.


Added some rib pieces to match the other for appearence.

Am now doing the planking down to the waterline, and filling in with the balsa blocks.







I've noticed that round stern boats, tend to have the section directly under the stern, sitting out of the water. Won't pretend to understand why ?

Basically what you have here is a displacement or a semi-displacement hull. By having a flared hull you get more deck area for the same amount of hull at the water line. A more common type is a planning hull.

Thanks Mike, Carl, Frank & Bruce.

Carl, just poured some boiling water in a mug, then soaked each plank for 30-40 seconds. Nothing scientific, just a guess. If not enough I just re-dip it.

Frank, thanks for the explanation. Makes sense.

I've been making up the cabin this week, so will have an update soon. Took me two goes, as I messed up the measurements on the first one. Was too wide.
Actually I've been making a few mistakes. Sometimes you just have one of those weeks.

Given the hull a basic coat of white. It'll have blue trim eventually.


I've also painted the deck with various brown washes.

After

I'm fascinated by all of this, but I'm not a scratcher or basher at all.

Thank you both.

Mike, still a long way to go, before she's hitting the water.

Horton, If not scratch-building then I definitely like to kitbash. Very rarely build anything straight out of the box. I like to end up with something unique.
You should try it sometime.

The cabin/wheelhouse is all cut out and painted. Used styrene this time to represent metal. It will have an open upper deck, accessed by a ladder.
A narrow back panel will be cut later to fit properly.
