This is an excellent article.  I had the pleasure of attending one of his and Greg's workshops years ago where this was one of the topics covered.  David is a super nice individual that is most willing to help another ship modeler improve their skills.  If you ever get the chance to attend one of the Admiraliy Models Workshops, please do not pass up the opportunity.

I  bookmarked this article for later. I just got the MS Fair American. The BH and Centerkeel plan sheet shows templates of how much and where the 16 BHs should be beveled. I do not know how to translate those templates into cuts with my X-acto. Is there a place to go that can help me? Incidentally, I just completed Phantom using your Pradticum. It took 7 months, but I'm proud of the results.  Thanks much!

Ed at Wycliffe: It is almost impossible to bevel accurately from the drawings you have. Once your framework is all properly set up, you should bevel the bulkheads using sanding sticks until the edges of each bulkhead are just nicely angled. Sanding sticks are easily made from lengths of flexible wood. Attach the sandpaper with either rubber cement (which is better, as you can strip off used paper and replace it) or white glue. Check that everything is fair with thin flexible battens to ensure that there are no low spots or 'wavyness' anywhere along the hull.

Chuck, in the MSW list of PDFs (each with the PDF symbol to the left), there is nor a PDF symbol to the left of the listing to David's planking tutorial. Since others have downloaded the article, I need a hint. Thanks much.

Ok I see! because the PDF symbol/link was not straight across I assumed it was the one for the planking fan. It is the same article that was in Warships to Workboats

Chuck,

I was going to try lining out planks using your tape method and can find it no where.  Do you recall where you got it?
