Thanks Eric for clearing that up for me. If anyone would know, you would know !

Got the Bulkheads cut out just running the scroll saw by the "tabs" and all is well. My exacto and my hands don't do so well.

Final before progressing. I noticed at least one of the Bulkheads slips right (almost falls in) in without the use of any force, hammer, or otherwise. (which is great as far as I am concerned).

Hi Donnie
A box cutter with a little pressure on each tab ( flipping ply) will works well on 4-6mm CNC cut. Save you using the SS and risk damaging the parts and cutting up good ply.

Wait till you try a Jotika Kit thats all CNC.

Thanks PaulV. I will remember that.
This pic just shows that I temp installed the Bulkheads - no glue. I have to make a building board for this next.

Check out HobbyZone.biz
I have the small version I am using for Le Renard.
The large one will be ordered in the near future.
Very impressive slip for ship building.

Rick, if the one you are talking about is the HobbyZone PSM01 Professional Ship-Building Slip, which I did look up - it is unfortunate that it is out of stock at this time. I like it and wanted to order it. I already stopped at the Home Depot because they have small pieces of MDF and not have to buy a whole sheet.

I got a piece of 1/2 inch 4 x 4 and will cut it up later. If I have time, I will draw a 3D of it and post it here. It will be very simple.

I got my Building Board made. It is not elaborate. Just a simple base 24" x 10" and then two separate pieces cut with a rabbet on each one. The rabbet forms a channel so that the thickness of base will not interfere with the Bulkheads. I just need a little relief area. The creative part of my brain is not working well, so, it is what it is and will have to work.

It is time to get on with the project now !!!

It didn't take but a few minutes to install the Bulkheads and the two layers of decks. I am really amazed as how all of this fits together and is really a tight fit. The frame is really solid even with no glue. The two layer pieces really make the Bulkheads line up square.

Looks like it's a tight fitting kit! Sweet!

Well,
everything you saw was just a dry fitting. I really wanted to glue up all the Bulkheads at one time and while the glue was wet to install the decks 1 and 2 so that the decks would provide a nice platform for being square.

As I was applying glue to one of the Bulkheads, I realized that this is not going to happen as it is difficult to manage the wet glue as it flows - so, I thought that I would wind up having a mess on my hands. Just decided to do things the old fashioned way and use clamps galore and 3" machinist squares to make sure things are square.

I am showing this 'one' as a procedure and won't show the remaining as it is just the same.

Hi Donnie, don't forget that on the laser cut parts the edge is at an angle.
As an example on the Mayflower the bow keel and beak will be off at an angle of about 30 degrees, so should one use a "fill in" or sand the "proud" side level and then maybe have to reshape a whole lot of other things.
