Triton Poseidon Cross Section POF Scale 1:48

Post by Aussie048 » Tue Sep 05, 2017 3:47 pm

I purchased Triton Cross section sometime ago online that recently arrived.

I decided that I needed a break from planking on a large ship like my USS Constitution and did not want to rush it. As I had seen another build log of Halifax I decide that was a big step but with the Triton Cross Section to learn the process of building a POF.

I have started building the building box for the Triton and started looking at the manual to get a feel of the build procedure.

The cannons in the kit are the best I have seen in a kit, but you will have to wait to see them.

Cheers
Geoff

this is wonderful Geoff. I cannot make out the second photo as its a bit out of focus, but the frames look like solid Cherry to me.

Hi Brian

It is giving me a good giving an insight into POF. I have dry fattened frame 1 And B so I could check out the jig. To see if it need a bit more rubbings down. I Think it does. It's a bit hard to start of with as the instructions are Chinese

Cheers.

Don't worry about the instructions mate. Theres plenty of build logs you can look at and you just need the drawings and numbered parts anyway.
I bought some of these rib clamps from the internet which were quite were cheap for holding things in place until the glue sets.

I have been quite busy cutting out parts for frames. I have 3 frame glues up worked out there was some errors in the parts list, which slowed me up a bit but when a part has cutout in it and on of the cutouts is going straight into the other frame where a gun port was to go,even I could work out there was a problem. So in total I have identified 4 errors. I have one frames to glue up and currently cutting out frames 5 out of 9.

I make no apologies for my work bench being a disgrace. That is just the way Model Ship Building can be at times.

Cheers
Geoff

Thank Brian and Zoly

I decide I will dry fit all the parts give them a rough sand for all the frames then give then a fine sand before gluing together.

Might take a bit longer but who is in a hurry.
