OK - maybe not the correct name Laughing Laughing Amati Plank Benders is the correct name. In my view an overpriced tool - but so are all Amati's other tools.

Four planks each side glued on 



Clamps in progress to hold hull inverted for the rest of the planks the hard work begins with tighter compound curves.
I've only glued myself to the hull 3 times so far lol




And the poly pipe for soaking the planks 40mm id

Thanks Paul.
Today, 3 planks each side reduced from 8.5mm to 5mm x 3mm so much easier to work with.
And there was no flex in the keel at all.
The clamps were made with 50mm angle brackets that were epoxied to 12mmx30mm Poplar and were attached with bolts through the base board so that when planking is finished the hull and clamps lift off together and allow access to the clamp bolts to release them.

Damien,

Before I start sanding the outside of my planked hulls I resin the insides - either just resin, or resin and glass fibre tissue or model aircraft tissue. It makes the hull more rigid to help with sanding.

I'll use filler on any gaps before the resin or it'll be a disaster sanding.

5/2/16 Planking finished, filler to all the gaps and polyester resin to the inside to stiffen it up prior to sanding the resin cured quickly on top of shed in full sun 27c heat.

6/2/16  Sanded easily a few bits of filler still needed a calliper was used to ensure equal outer width of  each bulkhead from keel at deck level.

Pic's later off to add filler it will dry quickly 27c outside heading for 31c.

Inside with polyester resin coat.



Second lot of filler sanded  coming together nicely .





The bow blocks glued in place.

Thanks Paul.

While sanding the bow blocks I was regretting  gluing the the stem piece on first with super glue however a whoops happened with it caught under the bench and it broke sanding proceeded smoothly and a new stem was added to finish her off I intended to glass tissue & resin her today but I cant be bothered so will sit and watch Babylon5 episodes.

I have watched quite a few of Eureka, have you watched any Stargate, my favourite is Stargate Atlantis.

If you like strange Sci-Fy try Fringe, some of it is almost believable that it could be real in the near future, Continuum is another worth a watch if you like time travel..............

I have Fringe & Continuum but haven't watched them  Yet


A Scifi movie I really liked was Cowboys and aliens set in USA wild west.


I have every book EE Doc Smith ever wrote and a few written in his name that were finished after his death.

I like most science fiction stuff as long as it is well done.

I watched Stargate Universe but was disappointed as it only ran for 2 seasons, but still worth a watch 2thumbsup

2 layers of glass cloth went on easily  (See the post in Tricks ant tips) no dramas 5% thinner added to the polyester resin.
The stem and end of keel were all I that wouldn't behave so will need to do separately.



Nice and smooth.



She'll be ready to trim tomorrow.

Had a few 6mm bubbles and in several places the tissue lifted at deck level nothing a little body filler won't fix.







I doped the deck level plank and top of the blocks next I'll smear the  hull with body filler and wet sand when dry. Thumbup

Hi Damien, is it general practice to either cover with fibre glass tissue inside or out, I understand why you are doing it but I am curious to know..........

On another note, she is coming along quite nicely 2thumbsup

Thanks Paul.

Applying resin to the inside firms up the balsa so it doesn't warp whilst sanding, I apply resin/glass tissue to the outside to accident proof the hull against other models and rocks around the launch sites.

Hi Paul I do the same as Damien, except that I sometimes use model aircraft tissue instead of glass tissue. I also use either glass or paper tissue inside sometimes if my planking isn't very good Embarassed  instead of just resin. I also prefer to use a water based resin if possible - it has less odour and is easier to clean up. If using it inside I always use some form of tissue.

After removing the obvious faults in the GRP surface I sprayed the hull with high build primer after it dried I wet sanded with 120 git wet & dry paper unfortunately it was not as smooth as I thought. A drama proceeded as I found my spot filler had thickened since last use approx 12yrs since last used on my Hillclimb car, I thinned it with GP thinners and proceeded to apply to hull but being 29c day it dried as i applied it the hull ended up looking like a mountain rage of hills cliffs and chasms 2 to 3mm thick left it 3 days to fully dry.
Finally started wet sanding with 120 grit without much success for 2 hrs so switch to 80grit for another hour also without much success this putty had set like concrete.

I attacked it today with my sander with 90mm triangle 80 grit pads which cut the worst of it and with the paper in my hand not to bad as pics show.







Tip If stop putty gets thick and lumpy chuck it out.

Hull finished ready for final u/coat.





Rudder from 1.5mm aluminium sheet & some 2.9mm stainless steel rod.
The blade material was  bent at 90deg's in a vice and hand bent the rest of the way
finished of with a hammer.



The rudder shaft was notched diagonally in six places and was epoxied into place. 
The joint of the 2 sides was super glued and when dried body filled was packed into the top & bottom.



The brass plate pivot for rudder bottom pin although not on plan was 3mm tube hammered flat 
was added as the pivot tube is only around 15mm long .

With the hull ready for the deck I thought of getting a profile for a stand and thought of plaster bandage to get the profile after seeing the price on ebay I cut a hand towel into strips and soaked then in plaster wrapped the hull in cling wrap and placed 4 strips fore and aft,





The string was needed to hold the strips to the contour of the hull.

Stand made and painted, deck glued in place and trimmed I can't put pic's up at present my new pooter has crashed so sharing my wife's tablet pooter that doesn't have a spare usb slot for the camera a friend of my son's will check it out sometime in the next week.


The gallows assembly seen on earlier on this blog was turfed in the bin, why didn't I notice the angles were wrong before now back to scratch on this one.



   

The left side is a different angle to the right and a tad taller I retrieved it from the bin and kept the two sides and binned the rest and cut an angled spacer and tacked it in place with supa glue,  positioned it on new base then tacked the other in place I'll leave the spacer in place until I've glued the cross brace in.

While not able to process photo's at present building progresses I found the beam pivot bearing shaft some what off centre I removed the pivot tube to rectify I placed axle rod in drill press with the tube centre over said axle it was place within the beam and held at 90 deg by the drill press locked in place while the glue dried.

Funnel made and cylinder and valve assembly well under way couldn't get 3/16"channel cheaply so with Dremel and 12mm sander tube I spent an hour turning it into channel (Anyone want a heap of brass powder lol) Brass scroll work for the top of the assembly is next.

When I get my computer fixed I'll add all the pictures I've taken of the progress.

Finally have my computer fixed and able to process photos.

The stand completed.





Funnel and cylinder/valve block done.



Piston slide gantry under construction.



3/16 square brass tube turned into channel with 1/2" dia 80 grit sanding drum in the Dremel.



Gantry assembly.



The deck installed with rubber bands and 10mm dowel used to force it to conform to the hull curvature while glue dried.



Engine bay cut out.







My deck didn't quite match the the bow as this pic shows the filler required to make the deck conform to shape.

No $20 for s/h power supply & $10 labour. We have a computer shop near by that caters for the poor, unemployed and disabled if needed they will supply a S/h machine for $100 I donate our old computers when my son updates ours.

Yes moved along instead of sitting around most of the day had much more time whilst sharing my wife's computer even got the shed totally cleaned  2thumbsup

3 of the 4 engine/valve rods made some finishing still needed.
The plan called for laminating 3mm ply but I had 3 failures as glue let go while shaping so cut new ones from 9mm poplar.

 

3 of the bow planks glued in place pic's when closer to finished planking.
