hand painting the box girders and looks worse than the black in the bilges

tween deck 1/2 bulkhead on 54 frame, this will then keep the upper deck frames at the correct level

Wow Kevin, she is really taking shape now. I'm hugely impressed.

By the way, I think you are going to need a bigger freezer to show her off :D

these photos of the port side make her look a bit naff, but as this side is being fully covered, the hull plates will stick faster without paint

It must have take half an eternity to paint that lot with a brush. Have you considered using your airbrush?

yes i have, but then worried that it would be a fighting battle with it, and just used an hairy stick, when the bilge plates go on, i will have a much better idea of what needs redoing, unfortunately it looks messy for my followers (sorry)

good evening everyone

thank you for comments and likes

day 56 front end on, and back off again, stbd side frames going in instead

 

But first of all i made an attempt to join the front end on, after 24 hours of daring not to sneeze i decided, its far to early as there is nothing solid yet to secure it to, other than the keel plates, however with a bit of string along the centre line, it is spot on

right lets get the port side sorted, 157 frames to varnished on both sides, the reverse to be painted grey, cut and folded

frames going in, my next project for a few days

front end is getting in the way, rather than damage anything it has been taken back off

This is like watching a miniature shipyard at work - great stuff!

I was just thinking that like watching the real thing only smaller and in paper. Nice work Kevin.

day 58 port side frames going in Midships section

bit of a disaster yesterday so quite a few hours wasted, making up the frames for the tween deck and spent ages lining them up, went to fit then on the build when i realised it did not look right at all, i had successfully put them all on the upper deck position, not the tween deck, what a numpty, some were damaged beyond repair, but i had a few spare from a previous build

also made up a set of tween deck pontoon hatch covers, to ensure my corners were square (spot on)

That's an amazing amount of work you're putting into that build.

Yes it's quite strange doing this amount of work early on, very different to rigging which is the end of most projects
