Moving along well Don. Dave advised that the kit for NBM is almost ready to ship. Getting itchy fingers and can't wait to get started. Its been a while since I was able to sit down and build a model so I'm really looking forward to it.

Joseph, I like the idea of the turnbuckles. I've used them in a similar application.

Progress pictures of FRAMES A THRU J FASTNED IN PLACE, I opted for this method of installing frames using bot Dave and Hahns method, I was worried if I turnded jig over as Dave sugested it would be to unstable to work on so I left it like a Hahn style upside down jig, BUT I USED DAVE SUGESTION OF RAISING THE FRAMES TO MEET THE KEEL NOTCHES, as it would not matter as they will be cut off latter, I first installed FIRST AND LAST WHOLE FRAME(FRAME No A AND V) then glued the keel assembly to them, also note the FRAMES WERE CLAMPED TIGHT AGAINST TH BACK OF JIG after sanding frames to center on the keel, I will have another 3 frames in place by tonight....SO I AM GOING TO NEED HELP FROM DAVE ON THE CANT FRAMES BEVELS AND THE PLACING OF THE HALF FRAMES

I was noticing what looks like gaps between the futtock joints is it just the angle or are there gaps and for a reason?

Yes there are some gaps in the joints will fill them withe a mixture of sanding dust, white glue and water, when cut from jig, should have been done before installing other frames were done. Don

you can see the pencil lines where Harold drew in where the wales will go.

the way he did this is to take measurements off the plans and transfer them to the model

for the Halifax you measure up from the jig to whatever you want to locate either the wales or under the caprail.
Take a measurement from the jig to the bottom of the keel to make sure you have the correct distance from the jig to the bottom of the keel.

Those gaps you see are from the way the laser is cutting depending on the focus of the beam the cut on the back side is greater than the front side causing the cut to be on a slight angle.

there are 2 things you can do as don said just fill the gap. What I do is ever so slightly touch the end of the piece to the center of my 4 inch disk sander and that squares the ends off and removes the char. If you don't have a disk sander I have also used a square block with sand paper on one surface and just a pass or two squares up the end
