Thanks for the tip, @NMBROOK . This is a good idea. Its also important to protect the wood with any coating in this area to avoid any cracks like this.
This block is stored 15 month in my shipyard, it´s the restmaterial from my La Belle. The crack opened last week !
coat the end grain (cut off area) with wax will stop the cracking. It is cause by differential drying within the board. The moisture enters and leaves at the end grain and wax seals that up so thy wood can gradually cure instead of crack.
Nice work so far! Will be looking for more progress.
Thanks Balac. I coated the ends with woodglue. The cracking has stopped with this.
A short update from the CAD:
The A-Side from the hull is freezed. Actually i create the B-Side which has a different thickness from the bottom to the top.
by Freezed, you mean the sectional timbers are all Frozen in the CAD program or what? I was under the impression that all Frames should be decreasing in thickness as they move up the hull. Of course that really makes no difference in a model as long as it looks good. I looked at your La Belle videos and they are exceptional video in the build from start to finish. That show every aspect of the construction and is extremely educational and useful for new built up model makers. You should be a movie producer as well as a excellent boat builder. Thank you
thanks. I try to make my videos or photos like i would like to see if i need help. A Plank-On-frame-Building ist not the easiest sport.
With hull i mean the mainsurface. If you build a surface on CAD you have a lot of points. They have to fluid to get a harmonic shape. Its not
easy. Like the building in wood. You have as well to finde the shape but with other tools.
The inner surface make the same work because they are not identical. But here you need to have the thickness in the focus.
