HMS Blandford Cross-Section 1/48 scale from drawings
Posted by Sigep Ziggy on Saturday, December 7, 2019 7:51 AM

I though I would post my build of the HMS Blandford. I dicided to use popular for the frames and keel and mahogany for the false keel.

This will be nice. I looked up the beam- 28"-4".

That equals a model beam of 7".

GM, I think that is right, we shall see.

I started making the frame jig.

Cutting wood for the frames, setting up the patterns and making the frame halves.  This design calls for double frames.

GM thanks for the comments. You were correct, the widest point on the frames measures 7 inches AND Elmer's yellow woodglue interior.

BTW Great job so far, on the Crusader.

Taking a break from ARIZONA, makes sense. I'm doing the same thing, scratch-building a 1:12 scale 50' PCF (Swift Boat). Well, it looks great so far.

I have been working on the bollards for the Arizona, trying to get the deck going on my Nina and working on the frames for the Blandford.

Not to mention the two group builds I'm starting, a 1/72 A1 Skyraider and a 1/72 M24 Chaffee!

I also started a Christmas weekend project.
