Long time ago I built the section model of the HMS Triton, a 28 gun sixth rate frigate from 1771.
I was asked to show this built here in a log. Due to the fact, that it is already 10 years ago, when I made this crossection I will mainly show the old photos with a reduced text.

First of all I want to show the final result, so you can imagine what you could expect

BTW:
The section model is shown also in my Avatar

The ceiling of the Main Hold is mostly finished, and the recesses / pockets for the Hold Pillars are prepared (made with a small chissel)
Remark: The nailing looks because of the flash very dominant, in reality it looked way better....

The rectangular Hold Pillars

Installed in place (dry fit and waiting for the Lower Deck Beams)

Once more many thanks for your comments and the likes I received for this log.

With the following photos you can see the deck planking of the gun deck as wall the inner wall planking

40 DSCF0010.JPG

38 DSCF0008.JPG

Only half of the deck was planked, so it is possible to see the structure with the beams etc.

Here a view of the other side without deckplanking
