Thanks for the tip DonRobinson, I shall try it. It will be cutting it close though as the decking is already less than a millimeter thick. I had to hold up on the build last week hope to get back to it this coming week.Rather than sanding try scraping, it looks like most of that discolouration will come out. I use a #22 exacto blade to do all of my scraping it helps cut down on excess sanding and gives a nice clean smooth result.
Thank you Daniel means a lot that. Must ait I prefer the natural look. Plus it gives the ship your own personal touchShimsham!
Absolutely beautiful. I was hoping to see the hull in a natural finish as opposed to the white hull shown on the cover. Thanks for the photo.
Hallo Daniel, alias @Daniel20I finally received my HMS Fly yesterday and after much review am excited to share this build log with everyone.
These first 4 photos represent punch out, dry fit, sanding in various locations to get a comfortable fit, and finally
glue up. Had it not been for information from this group as well as some other videos, I would still be stumped.
One thing I did do was the complete as shown dry fit then just glued all the bulkheads and bottom deck to the keel with a
slightly watered down wood glue applied with a brush.View attachment 171150View attachment 171151View attachment 171152View attachment 171153
Hello Ken,Hi Daniel, I really enjoyed my build of this kit. It was small enough not to be intimidating but still enough of a challenge and with a scale big enough to detail. It’s the only model that my wife likes and doesn’t mind being on show In the living room.
Yours is coming along nicely indeed and I have the feeling that you’ll end up with a very nice model that you too will be proud to display. Keep the photos coming as it’s always interesting to see another modellers work.
