Hi Kurt,

I'm just wondering why you use glass as a base, for instance as opposed to just weighing down the bow and stern whilst the frame dries?

What glue do you use to attach the keel to the glass?

How do you then seperate the frame from the glass?

Thanks,
Alan

Looking very nice. The value of etched parts for the fine details is clear.

Hello alan ,
to avoid warping, I glue punctually with wood glue, which I can easily cut off with a Stanley knife with a long blade

now letīs go on ...

The tarpaulin rail is unbuttoned ... the Vulcan, on the other hand, has to do without

Now the next companionways have been added

Best regards

Kurt

For the construction of the triple expansion machine I reinforce part 30 with 1 mm Finn cardboard ...

... stick the whole thing in the machine room ...

... place the machine house ... with the flaps open

The flaps remain closed at Merkur

Best regards

Kurt
