Great build, I will follow with great interest.
What an astonishing build and a great inspiration to recycle my old childroom's writimgtable into a hull model! Thanks a lot for the interesting impressions from your model yard.
Good decision to do the wales first as baroque ships frames were hold by wales and afterwards planked so the run of the planks is parallel to the wles and only in distance starting to get their own run.
Looking foreward to your building's progresses. I didn't got separated plans with THE SHIPMASTERS SECRETS - where are your plans from?
I think this is a fabulous way to build a model. It cuts down on the weight with the hollow hull.
Well done Oleg.And a little update:
When working with the temporary wales, the main idea was to shape the top row of bottom planks and the middle wale board. Both have the same thickness and removing the temporary wale, it will be possible to process planks with sandpaper before installing thicker parts.

Of course, I made the first mistake, forgetting to coat the temporary wale with oil, so that drips of glue would not stick it to the main parts
The next difficult place was the crossing of wale board with the last cannon port. I wanted to paint the joint in advance: the red color seems to me too saturated in comparison with the red ocher used in the 17th century, but this can be corrected later. (And an unexpected discovery - masking tape does not work on a not sanded wood surface )

in addition, due to the fact that the part was inserted under pressure, it was difficult to find the correct direction of the cut. It turned out on the fourth attempt.

The clamp is another reminder of the weak longitudinal strength of the case - it was necessary to re-glue the seam between the frames, which appeared due to the efforts required to install the locking buttons.

Thank you Bilal !Well done Oleg.
I like your work very much. Congrats.
I want to ask something about rhino.
I use rhino for obtaining the frames for POB models. I use often "section" and contour" commands
But I've never tried to form the hull from frame curves.
Which command or commands are used to make a surface from frame curves.
Thanks in advance.
It's not obligatory. In the case of simple contours, such as on a yacht model, the keel and deck lines may well be sufficient. Rhino sometimes has his own ideas about approximation and you can add waterlines only if the initial result does not suit you.Then I see that besides the frames I also have to draw waterlines also to obtain a closed surface.
