Weight. This is perfectly transparent, yet has sufficient body not to be effected by the adhesive. Alternatively, you can make a rubbing of your drawing before you pin it down, and mark your frame from a template instead of cutting to the line on the paper. To make thi~ rubbing, lay your drawing face down on a piece of white card, then with a sharp pencil go over the lines seen through the paper, which when removed will have left 88 PLANK-ON-FRAME MODELS a copy on the card. The "rough" can then be built on the original drawing and the card cut out to form a template from which the finished shape of the frame is marked.

8, forward of which the frames are fitted on the cant. In full size practice filling-chocks were frequently fitted between the stem and the last one or two cant frames, but in Leon I merely fitted solid chocks between the stem and the lower parts of the frames, as will be described later. Sketch No. 34. In the Construction Plan for this model I have included full size drawings of the cant-frames, but if the reader is building some other model he will have to lift them off the drawing. However there is no difficulty in this, for when once the frames have been ruled on the Lines Plan, their shape is taken off just as with the square-frames, by measuring out to each waterline in turn, but of course along the angle of the cant.

2). These are two strips of 8/16 in; X 1/8 in. hardwood dowelled on either side of the stern-post as shown in the constructional plan referred to, with their outer ends morticed into the fashion-piece as indicated. The fashion-piece should be carved from the solid, using the full size detail included on the drawing. When the carving is complete fit a small bracket inside between the mortices for the horn-timbers, and extending just far enough forward to leave sufficient clearance for the rudder stock to pass between it and the stern-post, in fact this bracket forms the after side of the rudder-trunk.
