Very helpful and not that expensive.
Thank you for the advice. This being my first build Ive needed all the advice and building help offered. I’ve been able to fiddle, diddle and muddle my way through. It’s been a great learning experience and I’ve noted many things I would do differently next time around.I built the Enterprise 2 years ago and I started the second planking after I had the Hull from the first planking sanded filled nice and smooth you will find also that some sunk in sections of the first planking job can make the hull look bad even though they are only shallow depressions of 1/64 - 1/32 deep they can look really bad on the finished hull, so what I do is when I'm sanding the first planking I do so over a full sheet of news paper. I then collect that sanding dust and mix it with glue to make a putty I fill any gaps and depressions with that mix to make the hull as perfect as possible before starting the second Planking.
My first ships planking job was so bad I ended up painting the Hull with thick Brown Paint lol I learned how not to do planking on that ship. My next one was better and every one after got better then the last. Don't give up Brother, first ships are rarely ever perfect. You sound like your on the right path learning from mistakes that's what all of life is about Brother.Thank you for the advice.

I think I have as much invested in 3M masking tape as I do in the small tools acquired to build this model.I don't now why, but I like that blue deck also lol. I love seeing what other folks are doing with these ships so I'm gonna follow this one.
