Hi Mike, (or anyone), just joined, the scale at the bottom of the page (1/32 scale) is it supposed to be 1" to 5'. At the moment I have 1.25" to 5'.
Thanks
Eric
Where did you print the plans Eric?

Hi Eric ,I would suggest you to go a professional printing service and print one page of the plans and check the measurements and if they are right than go ahead and print the rest, I can’t print them at home either no matter what setting I am using the measurement are off.Tell them to print them as it is do not change the scale.

Thanks guys, I will take them to an office depot. I Australia the 'depot' is called OfficeWorks, they sell everything from pencil leads to tea, coffee and biscuits, oh, as well as paperclips.

Ok, guys, I took the files to OfficeWorks and had them printed on A3 size paper and they are the correct size. After paying for the prints ($10+) I then purchased a new printer that can print A3 size, DUH! tested it and measurements are the same.
I sometimes wonder why we were given common sense, we are highly intelligent beings but when it comes to common sense we are sorely lacking. Click here if you agree.

Hi Eric,
Welcome to the build. Common sense was not a strong trait in my family either, but we can usually work around it. I am looking forward to your build log.

Hi Don, I saw your post and had a look at my drawings (I haven't got that far with the frames yet). frame section 1 and frame section 7 must be the same shape only 7 is a mirror of 1 , so just cut out two pieces of section 1 and you will be right (or left or right and left).
The other queries in your post Don, I can't help you there as I have not studied that area of the plans as yet.
Regards
Eric

Ok I got a dumb question and it may have come up and I just overlooked it.

On the keel plans its all flat and stepped, however on the profile view all the frames are sweeping up in a curve and seems to go higher than the actual keel is.

Hi Joe,
There is a piece of deadwood attached to the keel from Frame 5 to Frame 9, it is so thin I made it part of the keel for simplicity.

Ciao a tutti voi e perdonate l'intrusione ma vorrei chiedere se qualcuno potrebbe gentilmente chiarire i miei precetti. A partire dalle due possibili scale di 1/48 e 1/32 potresti dirmi lo spessore delle quinte? In questo modo sarei in grado di tornare al formato corretto delle stampe. Grazie in anticipo a tutti voi.

Hello to all of you and forgive the intrusion but I would like to ask if anyone could kindly clarify my precepts. From the two possible scales of 1/48 and 1/32 could you tell me the thickness of the scenes? This way I would be able to return to the correct format of the prints. Thanks in advance to all of you.

If you are speaking of the thickness of frame wood the 1/32 uses 1/4" wood the 1/48 uses 3/16" wood, You will want to print on 11X17 paper for the correct size using 1to1 ratio
