  1. Ron, I agree she is really shaping up, keep up the good work, and thanks for the tips Ed
  2. she sure is coming along , a shame about the substandard material, but you are doing a good job working around the isssue Ed
  3. you might want to check out RLB Oneida build log on this site under Kit Build Logs, although he too planked one side and left the other unplanked Ed
  4. Glad to see you back in the shop, I find this small model quite interesting, can't wait to see the finished product, just a quick question on the Vallejo paint, do you know how long you can keep it before it goes bad?
  5. I believe that is a misprint, most of the build logs on this ship use a 1/32" thick strip for the batten, the kit includes 1/32" x 3/32" strips for the upper planks and ceiling, perhaps this is where the mistake happened using the width instead of the thickness, they are what I used to check for fairing. The Rattlesnake makes a great build and when completed you are ready for just about any model. Good Luck with it Ed
  6. Rich, it's really looking good, I think it will be a fine addition to what is turning out to be a great ship!
  7. Great news, now on to more important things, onward and upward
  8. Probably no one will , but the important thing is YOU WILL!
  9. Hard to imagine the amount of prep work that goes into one of these builds, I have followed a couple of Lumberyard builds but they were from the kit, keep at it!
  10. Rich, amazing work , as always, do you use some type of magnification? I can hardly see them on my screen with zooming in. Ed

    James, Thank you for the very informative review and look forward to your build log, based on your review I will be purchasing the kit within the the next week from Ages of Sale. Ed
  12. I believe that Ages of Sale, one of the sponsors of this forum has the model, but they may be out of stock, it's been a couple of weeks since I checked on it. Let us know you opinion on the kit when you get it, very interested in your findings, Ed
  13. Rich, I think you doing excellent work and prove JesseLee's point on increasing building skills, how much fun would it be if every kit had quality wood precision cut and snapped together , we'll probably never know! Ed
