Timbering Sets
    For the Discriminating "Scratch Builder" or those contemplating taking the "leap", the Lumber Yard for Model Shipwrights is pleased to offer timbering sets for ship models in the Harold Hahn collection.

    The Main Objective is to provide the serious model builder an alternative to building plank-on-bulkhead kits or having to develop plans and materials for scratch building

Step 1
Building frame planks and cutting the frames to their final shape.

The Timbering Sets are produced on a limited run of selected hardwoods. They are designed to maintain the integrity of scratch building by offering precision laser cut deck beams, stern frames, keel assemblies, and framing jig. Milled stock is provided for framing and various hull timbering. A timbering set includes the materials to construct a complete skeleton of the hull

Step 2
Building the keel assembly, setting up frames in the building jig and adding the wales.

The Plans are drawn by Harold Hahn and based on the original admiralty draughts. All frames are fully drawn.

Step 3
Building the keel assembly, setting up frames in the building jig and adding the wales.


The models, by offering timbering sets without masting, fittings, hull and deck planking, allow the builder the option of custom finishing a model in a number of styles and materials.

Step 4
Framing in the deck with laser cut beams. Ledges and carlings are added from milled stock.
