    Hi. New from UK

    Hello, just started modelling. Bought a Mantua model and dry fitted a lot of parts. The pieces all look good to my inexperienced eye but the instructions are hopeless. The model is a 1:40 Viking Ship. It seems to me that the biggest challenge for me at this point is going to be the planking ( so glad I started with a relatively simple model) Is there any helpful links on this site for 'planking for beginners'? Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Frosty
