I am about to start this build in an attempt to de emphasise the amount of work, and in particular repetitive work, that lies ahead for me in building my HMS Surprise.
In the very early stages I am told to apply candle wax to former edges to prevent adhesion whilst laying the planking. This is necessary as the formers must be removed and modified afterwards and the new sections replaced and glued in. Two questions: Is candle wax the best medium for this work and do i need to edge glue the planks? The model is triple planked in, firstly, 1mm x 7mm Walnut then 1mm x 6mm Lime wood and, lastly, 1mm x 6mm Walnut.
Once I have some work to show off I will post photographs and comments.
If anyone has a build log for this model I would love to see it.
In advance....my thanks for any comments or suggestions.
