Thanks guys for looking in and the kind words of encouragement.

I won't be doing a build diary as such as I don't feel capable of doing anything better than some of the great builds in this Forum. I shall be following Mr T's official build diary, deviating only with the inclusion of balsa infills' per MWG's excellent tutorial. (except bowsprit and stern gallery).BigGrin

However, I shall be posting 'progress reports' together with pictures and would welcome any comments or constructive criticism.

Kind regards

Hi John. BigGrin

Regarding not doing better than others there is nothing wrong with your build to date. Your build is as good as any on this forum in fact better than mine regarding a better cleaner build. BigGrin We all can only put together the kits as they arrive and do our best with them. Some will shine in places and others elsewhere as build progresses. When you look at some of the more experienced builders their builds really shine and we all will be doing exceptionally well to emulate some of them. BigGrin

Keep up the great work mate. BigGrin

Regards

George

G'day George

Thanks for the words of encouragement - I just find the high degree of care for this miniscule work quite daunting at times. Gimme base load boilers any day where tolerances are often +/- 5mm!LOL

I've done a small mod to my careening dock as there was a little too much movement putting strain on the 2 dowels. It's nice and steady now with no strain on the keel. Here's a pic...Cool

Regards
JohnP

Hi John.

Yes I thought that might be the case with just the two dowels whether on a base board or like you did into bench. BigGrin

I think Andy's suggested clamp build page 10, post 188 my thread re the URL from an inventive idea from Victory builder he gave to look at for upside down stability is the most sturdy of the different types. I will make the effort to build such as we progress towards planking and of course final painting. BB1949 has made up something in the same vein re his thread and you can see much more stability. BigGrin

Re the fiddly bits I agree with you they are difficult and we need to take on board any advice we can get on making those parts easier if possible. I've already had good advice on making up the tiny pulleys with wire and as soon as brass nails arrive I will use the advice I received from Karl on how to make them up. I had found them extremely fiddly so put aside for now.BigGrin

George

You've picked a great hobby. I hope you have a lot of fun with her. Your work space looks nice and tidy. Look forward to the rest of your build.

Progress report June 2014

G'day fellow shipbuilders

Have completed hull infills as far as possible to date;
First 2 pics are of Careening dock prototype #3, which does away with the 2 dowels which were a bit floppy, and delicately utilises a brick paver.LOL This worked really well and kept the work very safe and firmly in place.
The remaining pics are the completed infills sanded, shaped, shipshape - sorted.BigGrin
Some grooves can be seen where the glue lines are but will cause no problems as they will be covered by planking.
Must say, the infills took 20-25 hours over a couple of weeks - a little longer than MWG's tutorial of 6 hours - but I put that down to my inexperienceBigGrin Cool

Regards to all
JohnP

Hi Alan

Thanks for looking in and your kind words of advice. Don't worry about me rushing the job as I'm well and truly hooked on this little caper. If I can achieve just half the quality of your build I shall be happy!BigGrin

Hi Jonny and Martin

Thanks for looking in and words of commendation. Yes it was hard work but I'm sure the infills will have a positive impact on the future of the build.
