    Have not thought that I create still today this.
    After as me has cut out all frames, catch I all cut edges with sandpaper (K 400) trail

    With trail I hold the part possibly thus with the sandpaper surface 90 degrees corner comes into being. As well as on the photo below.
    The sandpaper must lie on a just surface

    This posture is of course a wrong because the contact surface of frames reduces

    With this wise one the round edge should be also also dragged.
    Very importantly the fact that with one may drag not the part too fast against the paper press (simply quite lightly push and always in of a direction)

    Hello friends,

    After him when all parts for frame scaffolding I have prepared with this wise one, I do the first adaptation. Especially importantly is control on account of all "intersections" at the identical height are, on account of frame width corresponds to the trunk width. Now all possible inaccuracies must be removed.
    If everything votes, I take the front and back ones share of the frame scaffolding and build together without adhesives.
    Part A - bow side
    Part B - rear side

    All frames have just edges what optimally for middle part of the trunk is. Nevertheless, in front and behind the trunk has other form
    What signifies that him carve run changes and across frame must have his contact surface no more legal to corner but as well as the edge course points.

    Below in the picture, I have signed which edges of frames we must change

    Hi Christoph

    Hi, Christoph! :D

    I love watching a master at work!

    What a great series of photos and diagrams showing how to fair the frame formers to provide a seamless hull plating, something at which you excel. This will help me a lot when I start a model that has all that red stuff on the bottom, only I doubt it will come out as well as your models always do.

    Looking forward to more when you can, friend. :D

    Hello friends,
    After few days force-pause reports me with together already stuck Frame scaffolding for underwater-crooked, that I put after the assembly on a straight surface and incriminate evenly with a few heavy books, again. That lasted 2 days
    Now, the whole construction is quite drily and solidly.

    Important with the, to keep about the symmetry, sticks is–the method-axis must be absolutely exactly. , Drawn with red arrow,

    @ Jim,
    You also can do this certainly!!

    Then, I still control, whether is same the height of cross-ribs and long-ribs
    All possible would distinguish now must remove becomes
  12. Scorpio

    Scorpio Member

    Also the wide must be control.
  13. Scorpio

    In the end, I still have them/her/it puts drawn for the ribs of the second high slice of the Frame scaffolding with pencil, that relieves sticks,


    Now, I am employed with the second part of the Frame scaffolding. Soon new photos

    Hi Scorpio,

    Thanks for taking the time for teaching us a few tricks, I'm watching this thread closely as this model is also waiting for the shipyard at home ;)

    Thank you, Scorpio,

    Now I realize how your outstanding model comes from.
    After reading your posts, I find that not only my skill improving
    and also the attitude in building a model has changed. Thank you again
    for opening my eyes and sharing the priceless experience with us.

    Best Regards,

    Hello friends just like promised further pictures here.

    Already just like I have reported I was employed in the last days with the upper part of Frame scaffolding. Now that is already on glued on underwater-part and dry.

    Now, I had controlled finished expanse marked with red line again.
  19. Scorpio

    This control is quite important. The Frame scaffolding must be precisely straight.
    One can test that only optically

    This strengthening exists in the construction
