HMS Blandford Project Main Support Page

Welcome to the Blandford Project. We will be building a cross-section of an early 18th century British 20 gun ship at the main mast. The purpose of this exercise is to introduce you to the process involved in building a model from scratch.

Just a quick coment, I use wax paper rather then a piece of glass glue will not stick easy to use and seerthru easy to match frames, I also use pins and tape to hold down frames while glue sets see my Halifax build. Don Farr

Mike just informed me AND sent me 6 new drawings of frames 7,8,9 patterns. I will be uploading them tonight.

It is VERY important that when you ever REVISIT the link to REFRESH your web browser so that you will not have old cached pages that would point to the old link. The link is the SAME and has not changed and will not change unless for some odd reason that I do not foresee. The download page will be done in about an hour or more from the time stamp that you see on this post which is 10:40 Central Standard Time -6:00 UCT

Thank you / per Mike

Don

The stupid question is the one that is not asked.

You are running Windows 10 as you have told me.

If window update is switched on you probably have the latest version of internet explorer on your PC.

I run Norton Antivirus on my PC. It alerted me that my PC was under attach twice yesterday and told me my PC was safe.

I also run a program called malwarebytes which is an excellent program to also have.

Overnight it ran 331 quarantined file on my PC today. That is normally zero.

There has been a lot of website gone down in the past week like Facebook, SOS etc

SOS is a minor site compare to Facebook.

Don You have my email contact and so do other members. If you gave issues just email me.

If a member has issues send me a PM if they do not have my personal email address.

In Speaking to Donnie yesterday he is setting up basically and email address so I can help respond to members request and keep my private email addressee private. We will work through that in the next few days so I can understand it as well.

Cheers
Geoff

If you use internet explorer or Firefox while you are on a page on the internet just tap F5 on the keyboard. That will refresh your web browser.

I plan on building the 1:48 scale and was wondering if will matter very much if I were to use 1/4" plywood for the top of the building jig rather than 3/16"? The only reason I ask is that I have lots of 1/4" but no 3/16", and I believe I the smallest piece I can buy is a half sheet(4' x 4').
Thanks

Don: I think you'll be okay. The top of the jig has to be modified with a bevel to accommodate the top of the frames anyway. The bevel will be a little longer with 1/4" ply vs. 3/16". Should be no big deal.
