Week 9 Another Section of keel and another frame.

The bits we received

And what we did with them

Just one section of keel to add to the model this week.

Hot tip of the week

Colin has pointed out that some of the slots for the frames are a little wide and the fit is a bit sloppy.  This is fairly simple to overcome.  Just use some strips of wood the brace the joint.  2 strips, 1 either side of the keel is probably sufficient.  Any square strip of wood will do - an offcut from the scrap wood will save you buying anything.

Here's a sketch to show what I mean.

What we've been promised next week.

Next week we get the final section of keel and some more frames
