Thank you Carl. I'm still climbing the up-side of the learning curve myself. :?

A little more progress on the TRITON Cross Section. Adding the floor planks, some of the hull planks and shaping and dry fitting the lower gun deck beams. Little bit at a time.

Hi Bob

Your cross section is looking good.
I'm still making sawdust for the frames, but slowly coming together.

I know exactly what you mean. I was 'married' to my scroll saw for a while when I was cutting the frame pieces. Can't imagine what a full build would be like with all those frames!
