About the other frames You have to sand them to the other lines of the paper. Just very carefully bit by bit.

Thanks Gilles for showing what I mean. I don't have any frame in the moment , where I can show it.

Don,
you have prepared the notches in your frame. The notch in your paper pattern must match with the notch in the timber. Then it is exactly what I mean.

Don,
it's difficult to say. It's a question what do you think, how much "meet" do you need to cover your normal building tolerancies, to get a fine hull.
If the drawings are hand drawn you need also more wood. This you can check easily if you mirror some frame templates on the axis. If the lines match, everything is fine.

For a model, which will be build with CAD drawings and normal building tolerancies, I think less 1mm is enough meet. If you are not sure you can give a little bit more, max 1.5 until 2mm.

To solve a problem, if there is one and to avoid future problems......
You must have a process to follow: strict and regular building steps.
Then, if there is a problem, you must understand what it is and where it comes from.
This is achieved by checks along the way to avoid an accumulation of small problems. Understanding the relationship of a particular part within the assembly of a series of parts to make a complete frame or the framing as a whole.
Then you must apply this same process to all your frames.
I will make the same suggestion I made earlier: work on a simple frame, frame # 14 or 15 for example.
Once you can accurately make these, following your process, work your way to the stern and the stem: all the others will work out as well.
Building frame 14 or 15 must be looked at a learning step. The frames further back and forward are an evolution of these basic frames: that is why one of those frames is called a master frame.
There is more to say about this, but who really wants to spend time reading.....

This said....
The frame in the photo may look good on its own, but is it accurately put together? Will it fit within the assembly of the framing as a whole?
The photos do not tell the whole story: let us see the photo showing the final check for this particular frame.
If the assembled frame fits, lines up with the original frame pattern with some accuracy, and the modeler verifies that, then the question "how does this look" or "am I on the right track" is not really needed. The accuracy of the fit over the original pattern will dictate the amount of extra meat needed on each frame to compensate any error made.
And as far as that amount of extra meat needed, only YOU can evaluate that need: according to how confident YOU are with the accuracy of YOUR work from the time YOU begin fabricating the components making an assembled frame. There will be an evolution in your confidence: it will get better as YOU gain experience from frame to frame. You also have to keep in mind that the least amount of meat you keep, the better you will be able to judge the accuracy of your work as it is easier to use reference points the closer you are to the lines.

Back to my cage.

ok have not posted lately but still working on sanding frames so far all checks out, received my small building slip and tried to fit a frame in it works but right now i need to get used to it, if it works like the dry fit it is going to be a problem20200420_193706.jpg20200420_195552.jpg20200420_200526.jpg20200420_195648.jpg20200420_200030.jpg20200420_195309.jpg

Hi Don,

It looks like a shipyard.
If you are running out of materials what you can do is to redesign your build board.
What I would do is to add a waterline to the building board for properly positioning your frames. In your drawing set there should be a sheet showing the waterline plans, select the waterline halfway the hull height at the maximum breadth. Copy it to a proper plate of plywood.
Draw the frame positions in it and notches for the spaces between the frames. Remove the inner part and check it on the original shape on the drawings, it should be an exact fit as it defines the shape of the hull.
Fit the waterline board at the proper height with threads.
Now you have a template of the hull for fitting the frames.
See below a set up of this type of frame.
