Dolphyn - Corel

Postby cog » Mon Dec 10, 2012 7:30 am

I got the model some odd 15 years ago from someone whom started the basics and never got around finishing it. So I had a box full of wood and a crooked frame. Certainly nothing fancy like today's laser cut parts!

I took it all apart and restarted. Unfortunately I forgot to make some pictures at the very beginning (1st mistake!) But fortunately not to late to start the build log.

Another problem I encountered during the build - thanks to an old kit, partly on the go - you might miss parts, or parts are broken ...

So let's get started:
After ripping the base apart, i.e. remove decks, and trusses, I could rebuild. Needed to cut one new truss, as I ripped one a bit to enthousiastically ... After that I realigned the keel and rebuild the base.

Hopefully all the important pieces are there. Even with a good scrool saw, building the old kits can be tricky. Lots of file work after cutting out the pieces. Wish you luck and look forward to pictures.
Happy modeling,
Gary Maple

Thanks barba and gary,

I need to find a way to show the pictures. I'm not prepared to put my images on a public server. I know it will make posting difficult.

Carl,

you don't have to have an image hosting website to upload photos on SoS. If you scroll down just a little while "writing" your post, you will see

""If you wish to attach one or more files enter the details below."" Then a Browse Dialog Box button to click on that and select your picture from your own PC. Then click on "Add the file".

Then when you "preview" your post, you should see your image you just uploaded. Then click on submit. You do not have to select "place image inline". Just load your file then go. The SoS Server will take care of it.

Hey Carl - no worries ! I put this forum together and even I forget its there. No bragging here though - it took a while for me to figure this out. (and I still have a long way to go). I try to leave well enough alone on this forum. In other words - I am very careful with modifications.

Finally, I'll be posting. First images of the kit after the ripping apart and remounting the bulkheads and deck, and subsequently first layer of planks.

During planking, whilst waiting for them to dry, I had a go at the gratings. Corel's strips included for them makes it a fairly easy. It is a pitty there are only 4!

Second layer, gave some colour to the hull. It looks less a carcas ;-)
