Hello every one. I joined the sight a few months back and figure its time I post a build of Alfred which has been a slow process with life getting in the way. Since then I have expanded the shop to give me a little bit more space to work in and a clean space for my library. At the same time I have retired from working and plan on getting a CNC mill to maybe lead to others things like carving and gifts for the family and other's Do hope you enjoy the photo's. Gary

Thank you folks and your comments means a lot. Here is some photos of Alfred main magazine, that I built and was one part that I enjoyed building a lot. Took me awhile and figure out what was what helped me understand why they built it that way. I also added her plan that shows the Orlop deck and the magazine that sat right below it. Gary

Great work - I like the appearance of the magazines and the interiour work very much.
One question: In which scale are you building? I guess it is smaller than 1:48, or?
BTW: "Nice" workshop !!!! Beautiful room for the hobby

Beautiful build, Gary. Something to inspire me now that I am starting out my build again after correcting some serious errors in printing plans.

Your workshop reminds me of the one I left behind when we downsized. I now work in a 3sq meter corner of my garage and the kitchen table but I have access to a community workshop nearby which makes it bearable!

Once again, congratulations. I love the 1/48 scale but it is a huge job to build to it.

I see what you mean dave the ends where the end beams meet the center beam there is a bigger gap so I think its actual joinery and not simulated.
as I do the bomb vessel X section all the joinery I do is by hand and that takes a long time, so I skipped a lot of joinery in the deck.

you could speed things up by milling the joinery and thats a skill in itself

the next step up is CNC and programs that run mills, lasers, routers, carving machines XZY, 3D printers
