Tip to tip top 9 3/4 inches that includes the tabs on one side.
I mesured that part 4 ways and it is straight must be the picture.It will probly look better with the decks on.
Were you able to see if the new part lines up? I made it 55 millimeters longer.
O.K., I am uploading a new template now, Give me two minutes.
O.K., latest file is now up. The other ones are gone, so you don't have to worry about downloading them by accident. These are very easy to adjust, so let me know!!
You did it it is perfect thank you.
I hope it works in the end. Remember, cut that up as you need to. The idea is to always end up with parallel, not perpendicular planks. If you need any adjustments, let me know.
So it's all in the eye of the beholder
Yes sir and thanks for your help as always.
There is a slight wave in the deck but I can live with it.It is made of 3 sheets of poster board lamenated together.
You can get rid of that wave my applying some glue underside, then stuffing something to push up on it. When the glue drives, it should keep the shape. By the time you get done putting everything else on it, it probably wouldn't be noticeable. You are going to have to get away from corrugated cardboard though, the stuff is not good for long time life on the models unless you dipped in in a fiberglass resin! 1 mm poster board works best.
Michael's Craft Stores will give you the stuff free, just show them a model you have built, and ask them if they have any scraps they want to sell. Even if they charge you %45.00 bucks, (they have never charged me a dime), they have given me 20 lbs. of paper, with the pieces averaging 12" x 12', even up to 36" x 18". All 1 mm acid free, lignin free high quality paper.
By the time I get all the decks on I,ll have 6 inches to worry about.Michael,s up here said can not do,I think I might do a road trip down by you in the spring.
Personally, from the pics you have, I don't see anything you need worry about. It looks great. I can't believe how fast you work! You amaze me!
You are like lightening compared to me and my workings....:mrgreen:
Not to mention neat and tidy to boot. Your galleon is looking great.
That galleon is a thing of beauty in it'spresent stage. It's going to *fabulous* when completed. Thanks for posting the build photos.
By building the upper part of the ship, you have maintained the number one rules of shipbuilding. All of this will hold the framing firmly in place when you start to plank her. Just remember to do everything symmetrical. It keeps the hull straight and fair.
