Hi Strk,

Looks good and obviously very strong! I was glad to learn that you were the fine designer of the Modern Naval Warfare ships on ecardmodels.com.

Best wishes,

Greg

Build continuation.

Fore superstructure first level.

Again I used groove joints:



Simple elements, simple build. No further words neccessary:

Of course, elements are not glued together.






Now, fore superstructure second level, and then - the hull (still not designed yet)

Hi Strk,

I like the look of your build. I suspect that creating a "simple" build involves a lot of complex design work. Can't wait to see the hull.

Since I work with angled, flat surfaces, design process is not so complex. Drawing (and cutting out) framework elements with groove joints is time consuming, but it gives unparalleled comfort and accuracy in build.

The hull framework will be challenging. It will be designed (hull skin) in a little bit different way (than in Nansen). Single layer with overlap at the WL.

Fore superstructure, second level:


Currently, this module is re-designed and slightly simplified - it came out, that there's no need to build 8(!)supporting elements

I needed a rest from cutting thick cardboard, so I decided to build one of two WSC-3 UHF SATCOMM antennas:



Each antenna consists of 9 parts.


Fore superstructure:

It took one week to design the hull.
I used two-views drawing (top, side), a bunch of pics, and available data (length, length WL, beam, draft) to design this:


All surfaces are easily developable, except sonar radome, which needs to be cut the way I shown on my how-to vid (with poor audio quality) at YT.

I like the tab and slots you are using. Makes for a very rigid design. She looks beautiful and anyone who knows Naval History appreciates "The Sullivans".

Whenever it is possible, I avoid tabs. Tabs made of 140g/m2 paper have enough rigidity, but their thickness must be taken into design, and can cause errors in build. Tabs made of typical office paper 80g/m2 are thin, but not enough rigid.
In this case, I had to use "special" material. It is a sort of semi-transparent, thin, very rigid paper, sometimes used as an aid in nautical charts trainings. You put it on the chart, draw lines on it and and safely erase them with a rubber, preserving your chart from wear and tear.
Ask some skipper to get detailed explanation.

The antennae came out quite well, incredible detail in such a small creation, which bodes well for the rest of this build.

A very nice rendering of the hull, and I look forward to seeing it created as you proceed with this build.

Wonderful job as usual!

Cheers!
Jim
