Hello Don, I'm happy to see you start your build log.
Heinrich is giving you some good advice so I won't intervene after this :).
In your pictures I see some of your pins are correctly placed and others are not. Let's have a look at #8 the one you were first working on. If you look at the diagram starting at the top left side of the frame, follow the line down to the bottom. You will now see at the bottom there are three lines the one you are following, representing the edge of your frame piece, and two other lines. So the middle line is the line you need to line your pieces up to, the inside line is representing the laser etched bevelling line. the other line, the outside line, is the outer edge of the back piece. If you look at the "back" piece diagram, at the top of the "back piece" you will notice a slight overhang where it sits on top of the front piece, this overhang is also shown on the front view. So when you glue the front and back sections together they will not line up but there will be slight overhangs both on the outside and the inside that will need to be bevelled smooth.
If you feel you must use pins, clamps are so much better, try placing the piece on top of the diagram first then place your pins around it.
I hope I did not confuse you with all of this, I will now sit back and watch you do your magic!!:)

Hello Don, Both Heinrich and Peter, and Don gave you excellent build information. Sorry that I did not catch you using wax paper, that sure is a no-no that is for sure. I do just about all of my ship building sitting down, much easier in the legs. May I suggest that you rise your chair up a couple of inches or just sit apon a cushion, this will give you a much better line of sight over your work bench.
Regards Lawrence

Don let's continue from the last picture. The centre piece has been clamped in position and we have dry-fitted the left-hand side (as we look at the picture). When you are happy that it is all good, remove the loose piece and apply glue.

Glue applied to edge of side frame.

With the side-piece pressed against the centre piece the excess glue is wiped away (I use my finger) ...

... and the clamp is applied. Now the reason for the offset centre clamp becomes clear - it is make room for the clamp that will be used to secure the left-hand piece to the centre notch.

And now you simply repeat the process for the right-hand side piece! Leave the whole assembly to dry - I leave it for about 4 hours, but that is probably overkill.

The best of luck and show us what your completed rear Frame #31 looks like when finished.

Don I would really like you to do the back frame first and finish it so that we can see if we are on track. Let's focus on one thing and one thing only. The front frame I do slightly differently.
