Pretend deck planking by steve-d Commander   Posted: 2 days ago
Right ho. Change of plans. Tried some experiments with drawing on my deck planking and screwed it up after only 8 planks worth. I also tried just using pencil but the curved planks are just impossible to draw. So...what type of strip wood is best to replicate a weathered teak look? Where to buy it? How do I glue it to birch ply? What gap should I use for 5mm wide planks? How do you secure the bent planks whilst the glue dries? Do I need to steam the planks? Should be enough questions for now, Steve

Hi Town3810 I read your post again , but carefully this time and saw I need to search under model boats not aerokit plans . I found his site but he appears to have everything but a sea queen which is the one I'm after but thanks for the heads up Don

Free plans by Dampfgerd Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 days ago
The same plans are many years here http://www.svensons.com/boat/ That are all Plans from "Science and Mechanics", "Boat Builder Handbook" and other very old magazines

Sea Queen Frames by donrecardo Seaman   Posted: 4 days ago
Hi Canabus , I think you are right when you say Aerokits didnt show the frames on their plans . I suppose there was no need as the frames would already be in the kit. I just thought that as others have probably built from a copy of the plan that they may have already drawn up the frames and its pointless drawing them up again if they are already available , but if not I will have to get around to drawing them up Don

Hi Don I think all of the Aerokits plans did not show the frames. I drawn up the Sea Hornet ones. Canabus

Sea Queen Frames by donrecardo Seaman   Posted: 5 days ago
Hi I was lucky enough to be given a set of Sea Queen plans by a member on this forum but of course the plans dont show the frames and they need to be drawn up from the lines on the side and plan views . Its not that I cant do it but it seems silly re inventing the wheel if someone has already done it . So if any one has drawings of the frames for the Aerokits Sea Queen 46" I would be very grateful for a copy Cheers Don

Arctic Privateer H441 Deep Sea Freezer Stern Trawler by steve-d Commander   Posted: 7 days ago
But how do you know what shape to make the frames if you have no plans? You would have more success with a foam/plaster 'buck' where you can add and subtract until the hull shape looks like the photos. At that point you could then continue into GF or dissect the buck to get the frame shapes.

Arctic Privateer H441 Deep Sea Freezer Stern Trawler by steve-d Commander   Posted: 8 days ago
Do you have any other photos? If you have plans giving the hull sections then you could build using ribs and plank but without them you have no idea where to start with the hull shape. If you have photos of her in dry dock or during build then you could model something from the photos using foam and plaster of paris. When you are happy with the result making a mould off of that is fairly simple and well documented on youtube etc. Does the build company (Built in at the Gdynia Shipyard, Poland for Boyd Line Ltd. 212 x 38,4 ft.) have a web site with info? Does she have a sister ship or were there a series of the same hull? Steve
