I have fitted the first frame. I removed the assembly from the framing jig after the glue had dried for the photo.

Back at the work bench this week and been busy assembling frames.

I have found this kit a most enjoyable build so far, and its been a real pleasure gluing together all the frames which can be a tedious task.

A few pictures below of the latest status of my build log, which has seen about 15 frames glued up and rough sanded. Also some of the frames have been installed on the keel using the framing jig.

I have assembled the head timbers which make up the bow and installed the stem assembly.

This is sitting in the framing jig to hold everything together. I will clean off the laser char when its all glued up.

Hi Brian,

Nice to see the progress.
The yard workers have been send home for the weekend? Look like the real thing with the full ribs construction.

Do you also add the lower decks, don't think these are provided in the kit?

Regards Maarten.

G'day Brian
Just re-read your log...... Fantastic mate. These Chinese manufacturers has left the others for dead in their details. All the other non Chinese kit manufacturers, have pull up there socks, or they will be out of business very soon.
Brilliant work my friend. I'll be watching and posting more now, that we are almost settled into our new home.
