I'm about to start my first build (Caldercraft's 1/64 Ballahoo), and I'm already unsure how to proceed. Here's the problem:
The walnut keel is 4mm thick, and the inner and outer planking layers are each 1mm. If I were to sand the false (ply) keel back to let the outer planking sit flush with the keel at the stern, there would be no ply left. I'm thinking of sanding the plywood down to about 1.5mm, and then sanding each layer of planking.
What do you folks think. Am I headed in the right direction or am I setting myself up for bigger problems later?
