Thanks Gary


A bit different type of building for me. But as usual, I like helping designers and repainters like yourself. I think boats are as far as I would venture into other arenas of building.

Exclamation Hull joined

At this point, I joined the forward and aft halves of the hull. Easy assembly. I used the integral glue tabs, however, for a final build, I would recommend to separate all the tabs where the surfaces mate and glue them conventionally. This way, the seams would be smooth and there will be no bump there.


Also, since there are no internal structures or framing, I cut and placed my own. I d strongly recommend them. Primary reason is to keep the shape of the boats from warping, and secondly, provide support for the floors above.

Upper forward floor

The next phase is to attach the forward floor on top.

and a rear view of the inner framing before the floor above it goes on.

Forward upper deck and bride.

Added gussets to the two frames to make sure they do not topple over during assembly.

Exclamation Rear upper deck

Attach the floor and the sub assembly to the rear upper hull.

Notice I added card stock inside where vertical walls are to be attached. This way, you can squeeze the sides together against the card to keep them from warping.



Nothing complicated here

Isaac, what weight of card stock are you using? I was wondering how structurally sound the sides of the hull were.

This one was printed on 180 gsm paper. The previous ship was printed on 210 gsm. My opinion is that the 210 gsm for slab sided boats is best.

180 gsm is still OK, but as I stated, internal framing is required.

Exclamation Rear decks

There are three decks in the rear. The two lower decks are shown

For me it was a puzzle, but additional views solved that.


Assembled.

Question Forward optional parts

There are two small rectangular shapes marked optional.


They are to be installed under the upper sides with the name Holiday.


I added a piece of wood inside to keep them straight.


Parts

they will go here:
