Hi Joe

I guess that in the old days which are well before computers and CAD, seen the plans where drawn that a plan would have inaccuracies in it.

With my Triton Cross Section there are no plans as scale 1:1 to the model.

That will make it a bit more of a challenge, but we will get there.

Cheers
Geoff

I was looking through the parts for the Triton Cross Section and decided to pull out a cannon barrel to have a look.

Yes I did have issues with shadows, but the cannon barrel I am more than happy with as the rest of the parts in the kit.

Cheers

Thanks Donnie

I bought the kit because I wanted to learn POF.

I am learning, slowly

That became about helping one of our very good members watching his posts and helping him out

Cheers
Geoff

I managed to make start sanding again today. I was using my pensander running around the inside.

It was short lived as I was not happy with one of the joins so I got my Isocol out and wrapped some cotton wool around the piece that need separating and drenched it with Isocol. This will losen the PVA glue. It will probably take over half an hour due to the thickness of the timber.

Cheers

Good to get back to doing bits and pieces

I managed to separate the the part. All it needs is a slight clean up and putting it back together.

I started sanding and about the best I could come up with to use was my Dremel mounted on the drill stand. I never thought I would ever used the drill stand ever again but as I am only using slight pressure and the Drill stand is sitting at one height it actual works well.

I have only completed the left hand sis of the frame at this stage P1010103D.jpg

Sanding and even more sanding.

I used the Dremel for the curves but for the flat edges used 180 grit. I have 2 more to get to this stage

Then I will move on then with a finer grit paper.

Today I sanded down the last 2 frames and set them in the jig. The still need to be sanded with a finer sandpaper grit or as I was told today use Wet and Dry it is better.

I will pick up some wet and dry tomorrow.

The frames now fit snugly into the jig. I gave to align the keel notch yet and make sure the frames are at 90 degree to the keel.

Cheers

Hi Bill and John

Thanks for visiting my build log.

The plank on fame is a new learning curb for me.

It did pay to take it apart so it could be joined more neatly

Cheers
Geoff
