Week 2  This week frames 5, 6 & 7.

The bits we received

And what we did with them

I'm only preparing the frames, not gluing them to the keel yet.  

Following work was done after week 4

This completes the frames on the centre keel plate.  The stringers, part 18, keep the frames all upright.  You just need to make sure that they are central.  I did this by drawing a line down the centre of each frame, and lining this up with the centre line of the keel plate.

Hot tip of the week

Take your time getting the hull as accurate as you can - if this is cock-eyed, then the rest of the ship will be cock-eyed.
