Well this is the beginning of my first build log. Hoping that posting my progress will keep pressure on my progress. I recently retired from my second career and have been using my new free time to work on projects and hobbies. I started working on this model to see if I could make passable frames or if my skills were not up to my vision. They seem to be passable so I start this log. I have cut and assembled all the frames. Working now on the framing jig and keel. Then work on each frame; sanding, framing and erecting. I expect to learn many skills and techniques along the way. I will post one photo right now as a test to see how it looks.

I am willing to accept any criticism as long as it is meant to be constructive.

From what I can see it looks good.

My suggestions to make better view. Follow guidelines to post photos in full image size to larger to view.

The exact method may have changed from what is shown, but look for full image button in photos when uploading.

You can select EDIT in your post and fix them if wanted.

Best regards.

Kurt

Merry Christmas and Season's Greetings. I've been trying to work a little each day on this ship and read other blogs on how they did parts of their build. I have made the building jig. I recommend that you do NOT use Masonite in the jig. It is very tough to file to make fine adjustments. I am placing the frames in right now. I've decided to work my way through the frames and then I will work on fairing the frame tops and cutting in the sweep ports and the gun port sills. I will have some photos once I upload my Christmas pics.
