The assembly of the Emiliana’s hull is non-standard, so I have included some detailed instructions:
Why go to all of this trouble? When paper-modeling ships, getting the seams of the hull to fit tightly is always difficult. If you do a full-hull model, it is even worse. Actually, it is no wonder - you have irregular, curved surfaces meeting in three dimensions.
Because of the difficulty in getting tight fits, I am typically dissatisfied with most hull designs. So for the Emiliana, I set out to design the hull so that the parts would fit together perfectly. This requires a little complexity (and some sandpaper).
After sanding, the three sections are separated and finished separately.
When complete, the hull will look like this (except for the color):
You have two choices for the lower hull section. You can build part L or part M. The difference is how the hull transitions to the fin where the propeller is attached.
The M-Hull has a concave surface (leading to the propeller fin) that will requires a ¼ inch sanding drum (like on a Dremel-tool). In the L-Hull, the propeller fin is glued on, so all surfaces are convex.
Use sheets A1, A2, A3, B, C/Cr for the L-Hull. Use sheets A4, A5, A6, B, C/Cr for the M-Hull.
