I didn't unglue them I reduced the last bulkhead and increased it 2nd to last which had the same effect of swapping them round.

Ken,

Glad to hear you resolve the problem with the supports. How did you manage to get them unglued? Would be nice to know in case I get a case of the crazies and start building one of these.

Hi Ken,

another special project of yours.
This certainly looks like a tough start - I've never done anything in wood, so I can't give any advice, but I'll be following your work!

Cheers
Jan

Hi all corrected the bulkheads next problem, now the side panels are correctly installed you can see the stern is too shallow so I will probably build this up with wood filler.

If I were to do this I would get a set of hull lines and check all of those frames and make new ones as needed.
If there is only a little missing from a frame I would glue strips of wood to the edge and then file/sand down to the correct shape.
Cutting away the whole frame as suggested by Grant above is probably easier than messing around with fixing big errors.

You could always cut them away, make new ones and glue them in the proper position. Wood is very forgiving for stuff like this and all that internal structure will be hidden by planking. A site that might be of interest is modelshipworld.com

You could talk to a professional restorer for suggestions.

Hi all well I've removed the deck planking squared up the frame and are attached the front decking. I thought I would get away with doing nothing to the rear deck but on closer inspection I think he put the last 2 bulkhead the wrong way round since the second to last is narrower than the last (the phrase one step forward 2 back comes to mind) anyway I managed to get the rear deck off now I'm not sure what to do the frames seem to be impossible to unglue, any suggestions (I've tried steaming over a kettle but they won't budge) would it hurt the plywood if I soaked the stern in a bucket over night.

Interesting project. I've done a couple of rebuilds of started ships from estate sales. It can be a bit frustrating in the beginning, but once you get it straitened out and start the build again, things usually go quite well.

I'll be following with interest.

Hi all i bought this off my brother (he decided it was too frustrating for him) there are a few problems to sort out on it (I need to strip the decking off and square the frame up , it's a bit warped) he took the planking off which has saved me a job (he bought some really thin wood for the planking as he struggled with the supplied wood but it's so thin I can see it disappearing when sanded do I'm going to use the supplied wood) here are some pics, I've managed to get the deck off fairly easily getting the wood off the deck and squaring the frame may be quite a bit harder.
This will be a very slow build.










I think the pins hes used in the transom are way out of scale.
