I was thinking about purely the deck planking - I am sure, there is not enough strip material within the kit, so I would look around and order from a supplier additional strips, enough for the deck-planking. Or using the kit-plate with the pattern and you lay on top thin veneer-planking strips.Hi Uwek thanks for your help!
For the butt shift system it's meant the plunk or the deck of the ship? Because the first plank I did it with lime strips the white ones and for the second plank I have walnut strips so I can do it; but for the deck I don't have enough material
Hallo @Sparrow ,Hello everyone,
I have build three sailing ships in the past 8 years (HMS bounty - La Couronne - The Harvey) and I am now thinking to buy something more challanging. The Wasa has been always my favourite but prices around Melbourne for this model are about 1000 dollars and more for Corel kit, quite expensive. I have found instead the Wasa 1:75 Billing Boats cheaper online but this kit has 1 plank only and I am wondering if this is enough, and also the material looks like pine or something similar. I know that walnut is one of the best but, What do you think it is worth?
