Once we see something wrong, will definitely comment. Until now, it seems like you know what you are doing ;) Steady and planned execution! What type of glue are you using? It has a 'brownish' color when drying out.

Lester,
I've not seen the innovative use of the large clamps, like you did. I have plenty but NEVER realized you could simply fit one of the silver clips like you did, to clamp planks! Done with my planking but will remember for next model. Your planking is looking good!

Like Jim already mentioned - no comment of correction necessary, only positive comments are possible.
AND: Many Thanks for sharing your steam-box drawing - could you maybe also upload this as a normal pdf?

thank you. i saw this on a rc airplane modeling site this works really good and i use it to do all my planking it also allows to get into tight spots. you can use different size spring clips also . i have tried all the commercial clamps from model suppliers for clamping planks and NONE work like this does.plank clamp.jpg
