So I got all the stations laid out and part files made and all the planes dimensioned in.
There is a perfect layout of frames each frame is 10" so 20" total at each station with 2" airspace between each station. so the layout came unexpectedly easy
so the ship is 1204.88585574" full scale as in the loft and at 1/24th scale which is what I want to build one at its at 50.25" so nice sized ship for R/C too
37.652" at 1/32 scale and 25.101" at 1/48th so there ya go mike you can make your choice of scale. i think 1/48th is way too small considering being a light vessel it would be well suited for LED's Etc
well after a few hrs break to take care of neglected honey does got the midship frame all thickened out now only 85 more frames to go remembering each frames a double and there are 43 total stations)))
will be nothing fancy for these frames as they were simple so these will be built Hahn style where you slap a few boards together with the breaks precut then just cut the frames out
ok major FUBAR when I lofted up the hull I made the keel total width the actual width of half the keel lol so need to redo the loft and correct the keel.
the good thing is I can loft the hull with the thickness of the frames and then just add inside waterlines to check for flow then when I make the stations will go tons faster. so it is a FUBAR but it will save time in the long run
so today I worked on the deck beams and decks. I just lofted the deck for now until I get the cants and everything else finished as it is just a cosmetic look anyways when finished. now tomorrow back to my 14 hr days and little drawing
