The peculiarity of the proposed model-class submarine EL-500 (Fig. 1) the fact thather body is goingfrom flat wood blanks. Thus it was possible to get rid of difficult for beginners operations for excavation of the buildingsof theentire wooden bars. Now the model takes five plates of length not less than 450 mm and a cross section of 10X45 mm (one of them is used for the case cover).
Two platesare cutalong the contour soas shown in figure 2. In the plane of the future intersection on the axis of the knife cut a groove of a stern tube. The remaining billets are processed only in the external contour corresponding General arrangement drawing of the model “side view”.
After the gluing of the wooden plates in a single billet it on the cardboard template with a carpenter’s tool handle, and then pull the housing cover (manhole). During the joint cover profile is fixed to two nails, instead of them subsequently set screws M3 included in glued and the hull nut. The cabin is made separately and mounted after the machining of the housing.
