Wilfried thanks. John Linwood wrote a book about the SD14 and lists all the ships that were made and their variants called SD14 the full story.
Papersurprise I will probably make it a free download as I didn't put that much work into it mainly because I could find f@$%&* information or pictures of the engine so it is really just a basic representation of one.

Papersurprise the engines advanced as is going to get as it isn't going to be seen and I haven't been able to find any pictures of the full engine.
Here's the next instalment.

first off the engine installed in the engine room

all the main deck longitudinal beams are in place

starting at the stern all the transverse main deck beams are being put in place.

with the transverse deck beams in place I had a guide to help get the frames in the right place the next two stern views show these frames in place.


transverse deck beams in place up to number one hold.

same progress but taken from the stern.

sorry about the orange colour must take this one with the lights on all the deck beams in place and the forecastle bulkhead in place.

It's fascinating to see the inner structure of this ship.

I've been a bit lax in posting some more SD14. NYC irishman thanks how is you sd14 build going.
Thanks Jim and Don the structure is incredible. Not so much text this time the first picture is a follow on from the last the last post but looking at the show from the bow's .

forward main deck in place

forecastle deck in place and deck plates being made along the outside of the midsection.

close-up view of the forecastle.

looking towards the stern.

Main deck plates complete this picture shows the stern.

we now move on to applying the hull plates as I started laying the deck from the bow's to the stern I started plateing the hull from stern to bow. The bilge plates were applied first as they overlap the bottom plates. The side plates then all lie flush with each other.the picture shows the start of the plating around the propeller. I have lost some of my pictures of this part of the build I hadn't realised that the camera numbers had gone back to 0.


the hull plating on the midsection above the bilge plates was made up of two single pieces shown in the next two pictures, I did the midsection after the bit of stern plating shown in the two previous pictures. As I decided it was easier to fit the smaller plates used at the bow and stern to the larger midsection plates.you can see the smaller plates of the bow section in the first picture below.


this next picture is a bit blurry but shows the plates been applied to the port side of the bow. Glueing the hull plates on used a lot of 2 inch wide masking tape.also see in this picture on the naval tubes that take the anchor chain through to the side of the ship I have left them overlong so I can fit the plates around them and trim them flush before fitting the doubling plate around the hole.

The final picture is looking straight on at the bow.

Seems you've developed a bit of a starboard list there, matey!

Really spectacular work, it is an amazing bit of paper model construction going on here. It's great to see the actual hull construction as used in the real world! What a massive project, but clearly worth all the effort!

Thank you so very much for sharing photos of your work with all of us! I really enjoy seeing this one develop.

Cheers!
Jim
