  • There is a problem with the one sheet of planks that is in this kit. I don't know if

    you can see it here but where the laser skipped to leave a little section to hold the planks

    in place on the sheet it did not line up perfectly. That meant that I had a choice, I

    could either trim each plank to make it smooth or I could leave it go and fix it

    later with a little filler. I figured I would do more damage trimming the planks and I know

    I will be using filler in other spots anyway. If you are building the model the choice will be yours.

      • Bob,

        Looks like it affects plank numbers 5 and 4.

        I'm located in northwestern Connecticut, CNE territory.

        • Jim and Scott, thanks for your coments.

          Don't pass judgment yet, there is LOTS of filling and sanding to do yet but the actual planking is completed.

            • Thanks Mike.

              Here it is with a first sanding. Lots of work to do yet, filling and sanding, but it is starting to lookk like a boat.

              • Bob, your progress has been sure & steady on this little ship, while I've been away in the last week.

                She's looking mighty fine!

                      • Greg, Dave, Mike, and Rich, thanks for your comments, all much appreciated.

                        Many small parts added, toe rails, rub rails, fairleads, Sampson post, oarlock pads, beakhead and the

                        comings around the cockpit and the cabin. Those comings were tough, especially the ones around

                        the cabin. Lots of fitting, and groaning, and hoping and clamping using a wide variety of

                        clamps and rubber bands.

                        Bob

                        • Looks like it is coming together quite nicely. You were smart to keep that centerboard out of your way, with all the other operations you had to perform. Cool project Bob.

                          • Very nice Bob!! You sure have the talent for making the difficult look easy!

                            It's also fun to learn the name of all the various parts since ship projects are all new to me.

                            • Jim and Dave, thanks for you input.

                              I added the wet well covers, the cabin bulkhead, the cabin roof, the sliding hatch

                              cover and runners, and I am working on the rudder.

                              The stand comes with the kit and it works well and holds the model securely at the

                              proper angle. However, I have been thinking about putting this model into a model sea

                              even before I bought the kit. We shall see.






                              About the rudder, see next post about moving parts.

                              • Yesterday I badgered Model Expo over the phone to see what has happened to the plan set they

                                were supposed to have sent me. I did receive a promise that one would be forthcoming, We shall

                                see. From what I gather the plan set is supposed to detail the sails, spars, and rigging.

                                While I am spouting off, if you have followed my past posts you will know that I am against

                                moving parts on a STATIC model. My rudder and centerboard will both be immovable.

                                I have done quite a few models with many complicated moving parts but not on a static model where

                                they are either unnoticeable or invite movement and breakage.
