Re: 9 PDF

Thank you Bill. Sometimes it's easy, sometimes it's not. Trying to stick mostly with the easy stuff so I won't lose pace nickel and diming all over the Stage 9 plan.

TY.

Made a decision to spend the weekend tidying up my loft to make it easier to work up there. Drill bolt mounted 2x3 ft plywood sheets to the tops of my bookcases for storing the sets up there. Moved the 2 bookcases away from the landing of the spiral staircase so to clear any obstructions interfering with moving the larger sets up and down over the spiral staircase. Did a mental review of how I intend to begin filling in the sickbay sets building out from the doors. Same thing for the quarters set. Got the last correct size wood dowel Saturday for doing the lower plumbing for the bains in engineering. Thinking that is next on my list of to do's. Noticed some tweaking of the aft of the bains due to the aft struts are not vertical enough needing to have both sides of the base pushed in. As well planning on making finalized struts with spacer notches in the to lock it in and keep it all level. Mapper out the roof panels for engineering with the intent on starting on them this last weekend. Put that on momentary hold to straighten up the loft workspace. Been dithering on building the finalized consoles in main engineering, but trying to stave off that urge due to feeling it would be better to start building the other remaining sets first before finalizing any of Engineering.

Re: 9 PDF

Am going to recut and build fresh beams for the engineering ceiling. I neglected to make the notches for the cross supports for the ceiling panels. Realized that when I started building the panel supports last night. That will be about a 2 night redo.

Re: 9 PDF

Rebuilt the overhead beams with notches for the cross beams. Cut and mounted temp panels and onion skin for the light panels / windows. Have 4 different sizes of wood strips to buy before finalizing the roof.

Re: 9 PDF

Thank you guys.

Just a FYI early on I got in the habit of saving the templates For blueprinting later. Had a oops moment at the start of the project where I didn't save the template for the briefing room arches and had to sacrifice one of the beams to make a template for the final used arches and beams. ( it's ok I planned on building every set twice so it was ok to lose one beam that I planned on trashing when I was done. )

Re: 9 PDF

Just got back from a family vacation. Got the wood strips today to finish the ceiling cross beams. Will hold off on swapping out the temp panels for the ceiling so I can begin to focus on the remaining unbuilt sets.
