Re: Landon's 1/10th Scale FS19 Model

Interesting note: Not sure if it's forum software or because I'm using a phone, but I can only upload 3 photos per post.....

Re: Landon's 1/10th Scale FS19 Model

Decided to use masking tape to "stitch" the panels together before laying over the jig. 20161229_232028.jpg That didn't work so well as it held the panels too tight to lay nicely over the jig. So I removed most of the tape and laid it all over the jig and started "stitching" with tape on the outside...

Re: Landon's 1/10th Scale FS19 Model

Finished the proper stringers and notched them. (Messed up and made the notches 2ply thick instead of one like the molds but not too critical for this I don't think.... on the 1:1 Had I done that I could easily have shimmed the notches) 20161229_194959.jpg Cut out the vow mold and motorwell side pan...

Re: Landon's 1/10th Scale FS19 Model

Your model looks really good. The FS 19 is my next project once I finish with the canoe I'm building now. Following your thread with great interest. Yours is the first FS 19 Build thread so far I believe. Have you seen the list of compiled build threads here? http://forums.bateau2.com/app.php/page/...

Re: Landon's 1/10th Scale FS19 Model

Lunchbreak..... Glued two sheets of balsa together and cut out stringers instead of gluing after cutout produced straighter peices. I did one more with the back angle cut wrong again and figured out why. I was drawing the stringers out inverted so the straight edge would be nearest me but was not in...

Re: Landon's 1/10th Scale FS19 Model

Thanks topwater. This morning the offending stringer was almost straight. Pinned it down again way past straight and have hopes it will be close enough tonight. 20161229_080056.jpg Don't think I'll have any problem with this on the 1:1 I've been finding my fingers are fatter than I thought with smal...

Re: Landon's 1/10th Scale FS19 Model

Glued the transom and clamping boards together. Glued the stringers together. (My balsa is long enough I can make them without splices) Marked and cut notches in the stringers before gluing them. Marked the stringers notches in the bulkhead molds and cut them out. Partially assembled jig but had a p...

Re: Landon's 1/10th Scale FS19 Model

So another round of questions about the transom/clamping boards (almost all my questions will be regarding preparation for the 1:1 build) I don't see instructions on gluing them together, but in build logs see that the boards are primed with epoxy then a layer of epoxy thickened with wood flower is ...

Re: Landon's 1/10th Scale FS19 Model

After further research, I believe the stringers are notched 1" http://bateau2.com/howto/jig.php Shows cutting notches and fitting them together The plans page A314/21 titled 'How to notches" shows the stringers (without notches) and station marks, but off to the side not attached to anything is a di...
