Thank you all for following this build.
.
First start obviously is getting the Keel cut out - and - it was a little tough getting out of the laser cuts, but all went well. The Keel does have a little warp in it, but honestly, I guess that is expected and I am not worried about it. The warp is only in one dimension and it is very evenly spread out with a gentle arch that reaches across. No problem I can see. About the time it is put onto a building board, and glue the Bulkheads, I do not see a fore problem with this.
.
The Keel measure exactly 31 inches or 787.4 mm

Hi Donnie and compliments of the season.
An impressive looking kit, are you going to stay with the laser etched planking or plank over them? Also noticed what looks like plastic lifeboats in pic 04, is this correct?
My wife said she wants a model, I asked her "Calvin Klein or Runway?" The bruise on my arm should be gone in about a week!

Best regards

You are correct Eric - good eyes I must say. Yep, the tiny hulls are Plastic and rather quite thick with simulated planking all ready built it !! Since I am on the lazy side, I might use them. I know, I know...build your own. We'll see.
.
Yea, the other day, the Admiral was looking through her Department Store sales brochures and was showing me a dress she liked.... I asked her did the woman come with it !!! :laughing-rofl: Yea, that is the same response I got :laughing-rofl:
.
Ok, that is one of my originals !!!
.
So much for jokes..
.
Ok, so I could not deal with using an exacto to cut out those Bulkheads, so I remember that I had a Ryobi Electric Scroll Saw packed away. Dragged it out, dusted it off and put her to use (the saw that is :D )
.
The only cuts I had to make was the "relief points" of the wood of where the laser skips from time to time.
.
Enjoy !

A little trivia, those "relief points" in CNC terms are called "tabs". When using a router, in particular, they are designed to keep the piece in place otherwise the piece would move/whip up and be damaged or destroyed by the router bit, usually spinning at 20,000 rpm. Lasers use them for much the same reason.

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.
