Where did you buy the kit? I am foaming at the mouth to do this one!
You are a fast worker ..... I could not do modeling and talking with video - I guess I would say too often "sh...."And away we go again with Ribs ( Frames 5-16). This is the last of the Bow frames and the last of the forward portion single frames. This is very easy and a bit like Lego!. BTW I have solved the banding. Next video will be banding free YEAH!
Great to know that Paul that you were able to fix! Personally, I know how frustrated it could be...I use Elmer's Max glue for framing assembly and happy. I was able to test the stronghold: One of the floor timbers (frame 55) was wrong for that frame, and when I dry-fitted it broke...but chocks were in place. When I try to remove chocks from broken pieces - no avail, I took from spare... Trident Studion supplied spare chocks. (very nice).It does make them at lot sturdier where there are single entry frames. I suspect when it comes to the full ribs it may be less of an issue. I agree about the cutting process it would help. Apart from my fk up with the stern (now fixed) I can see nowhere that the top would need removing prior to the rib cuts.
I did try no 11 insertion and the Selleys/ Bunnings band PVA wood glue / MDF como cuts away cleanly from the frame no issue.( good old Sucktrally sound MDF) Not sure about stronger glue.
Just an idea: If there is room enough I think a piece of paper between the 2 parts can ensure it is easy to take apart. A thin layer of paper will be left on the frames but can easily be sanded awayTks Uwe, but the kit instructions asks to glue them at the top. As it is thin mDF and only the top edge is glued it comes away easily. I will see how the rest of the frames go.
Hello, Poul. There should be room for a piece of paper if you sand (a bit ) the top of the frame. But...I think the top can be easily glued without it. I don't foresee the need to remove the entire assembly from the berth until you have to cut the frames, but this is just my observation.Just an idea: If there is room enough I think a piece of paper between the 2 parts can ensure it is easy to take apart.

Hello Dan,Paul, Re the stern sections.. I told ya so... I don't know what the Elmer's glue is that Jimsky uses.. If it is a PVA then Isopropyl Alcohol will soften the PVA allowing the joint to be disassembled. If it is a CA(super glue) derivative then Acetone will do the same.
