I should have used cubic inch of water in my example. That would make 1700+ cubic inches of steam.
I was not specific enough. Job hazard.
My business is using adjustable volume tools to product finish fixed weight assemblies.
I also have assemblies that use a specific volume though the weight varies.
I have a product that just happens to work out that it's weight equals it's volume in grains. I use this to set the tooling up for other products that need the same volume but not the same weight. Example: I have a assemblies that use 105 grains of one product and the same volume of another that weighs only 55 grains. They both product the same finish product results. If I were to use the same weight, the second product would produce disastrous results being almost 52% over data limits.
Point is, thanks for straightening that out so I could correct it.

Some "meditation" done about an external keel lately.
First of all:
Lots of much too complicated and only confusing stuff written there!
All you´ll need is the bulb calculator!!!!!
More datas/pics will be uploaded soon.

Not much progress here!
I´ve been quite busy with other stuff lately.
Actually not really "other stuff" - his name is BAILEYS and we love him!
And he has grown up allready - a 6 months old "Gangster" with lots of nonsense in his mind.

Redesigning my tiny appartement currently.
Due to the several rc-model projects I´m planning to continue,
I simply ran out of building and storing space.
Lately everything got jammed.
As soon I tried to make one step forward on one project,
I had to get five other things out of the way first.
Thinking back and forth for some time I was able to find a proper solution.
I decided to build a complete new workstation with shelves above
and so forth.
Pics of the new setup will follow soon.

Definitely not, Admiral Sir!
I want to do this on my own.
I think I simply have to do it this way.
This is something I wanted to do since my own apprenticeship as a boatbuilder/shipwright - more than 33 years ago by now.
But I never found the time to do it.
Nowadays it looks like nobody wants any of my design abilities or my socalled "hightech" experiences any more.
You know - all these superlight race catamarans and/or race trimarans built in epoxy/carbon and so forth.
Therefore I would like to digg into the "oldfashioned" boatbuilding techniques again.
Hardwood frames, wooden planking (nut?), maybe even copper nails -
just like Jerry Todd does it right now.
And after some time of searching I found this beautiful and very precise plan of the "Royal Catherine" in scale 1/75 on www.bay.de:
But as crazy as I am I´m thinking about building it three times bigger ->
1/25 scale - would have a length of 2.6 meters overall then -...-
hull width 50 cm -...- just imagine
And when I ever get it done,
I might be 75 years old as well - 24 years to go.
How long did it take you to build your ship?

i know....you are really the actual person who wrote the song..."my way"
1/25 scale would be a nice size!....would be just a wee bit longer than mine....i feel a ship like this has to be large.....i could only make a very very rough guess as to how long i took....maybe 5 years...i wonder if lucc has kept track?.....i should have use a timer like they do in chess games ............ actually i think i started 7 years ago, but i took off 2 years to build ww1 flying models....pfalz, fokker and sopwith triplanes...not to forget the albatross dva....but i still can't fly well....may try again this spring....
be nice if some close up details of that plan would be available...details of stern carvings etc....so you'd know what you're getting....for me, if i have a photo of a carving to copy, i can come up with something that looks reasonably acceptable...but making carvings from rough sketches would be more difficult for me since i've never carved figures before ..(which i had to do on the sides of the william)
...but....if you focused on one ship (and maybe a small side project for distraction), you should get it done faster than me, as you seem to be a fast worker, knowledgeable, and well organized..(not like me).....and likely, have the time and money to do it...
but don't forget to make provision for storing and moving it around

Just to demonstrate how consequent/rude/brutal I can be
regarding my own future (projects):
I cut my 6 ft wide doublebed in half to create more buildingspace.
The new (second) workbench will therefore be 2.35 m long - 0.6m wide.
Still not enough to do the rigging on that big ship,
but I´m far away from that anyway.
Close up details for the carvings:
Pics 1 + 2: You know that book - page 111 in my german version.
Most other pics: directly from the plans.
Last pic: current building situation - quite a mess!
If you really want to digg into that carving, I suggest you buy the plans directly from the ebay link I provided yesterday allready.
Sorry for the bad (dark) pics!
In reality the plans are bright white, all lines are really pitch black and very sharply defined - just as they are supposed to be - so no problem to expand them to 300 % with a computer copy machine to reach the intended 1/25 scale.
I believe the pics should be informative enough for now to give you the idea.

As soon as the new workbench is mounted,
there will be better, brighter lights installed as well!
Then I will provide better pics.
