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

Alan - glass is a good surface to use when building a ship. Yes, it is heavy so it does not move around much. And the advantage is it provides a dead flat surface and as Kurt says, makes it easy to cut the ship off later.

I use plate glass and have a few pieces - all of which I got free from the places that sell glass! I just went in and asked them them to cut me a piece of plate glass to the rough dimensions I wanted and then finished the edges, and every case they go off, find an offcut of the rough size, finish it and present it me free! I have always tried to pay but they are not interested!

Kevin, Kurt,

That's interesting thanks. I'm not far off atempting a much larger project, so I'll keep it in mind - had heard that method elsewhere too, must be a good reason.

Interesting to hear you say what you're reinforcing Kurt. A desription especially methods and little hiccups is very helpful learning tool for me!

Regards,
Alan
