Made a bit more progress now.


Frame 107 finished now.


And this is frame 92.


So these are the 5 frames I've completed so far.

There are 17 main frames for the entire ship. The tail section is quite interesting. I only kind of see how it goes together. Guess I'll see the rest when I'm putting it together.

I also plan to build the inner decks from card stock. But I'm not sure how I'm going to manage the windows yet. The engine cars will also be an interesting side project. (See what I did there? (-: )

But for right now, I'll just keep making frames.

Cheers,

John Gay

And now I add Frame 77 to the mix.



6 Frames done, at least 11 to go.

So far I am only doing the mail frames. These are the frames that were between the Hydrogen cells of the airship. There were also two Intermediate ring around each cell as well.
For most of the airship these are near enough to a straight line between the main frames that they are not necessary at this scale. But forward of frame 218 and the tail portion have a significant curve, so I might need to add a few of these intermediate frames to get the shape correct.

But that is still at least 11 main frames away right now.
