Great Videos - very informative - thanks for the link
But off course we would like to see them also directly here - so if you like you can also post them here with photos or also videos, or links to updates

Are you sure that the kit is mainly made of balsa?
I think it's plywood for the structure, linden for the rest and sapelli for the lining of the hull.
Hi yes I think your right, about the sapelli on the hull, But I thought the structure was Balsa. But it could be plywood

Using my new vice to work on the Octagonal section of the fore yard View attachment 131512
This is a very good device - are the clamps made out of some hard rubber?
I am using such one:

Seems, that you make your masts elements out of separate parts (like the originals) - hope to see once a cross section.
Maybe you could explain how you make the mast segements....

Thank you, I just think it makes the process smoother and quicker using the mini lathe
I just bought one for the shop. To turn some cannons, so I’ve been practicing. I think the light touch is imperative and it’s a big difference from working on a full sized machine.

I plan in getting some good use out of it. Oh yeah, I subscribed to your YT Channel. -New Fan

Sanding via the lathe is the best way to go. I use the Proxxon DB250. Luckily it has a 12mm hollow centre chuck allowing you to pass the dowel through, both ends can be tapered by flipping without having to join as you have. Well worth the investment.

Thank you I also have a video on my channel, where I modify the mini lathe, making a lot more room for the larger main yard
