Internal bulwark planking on Snake

Recommended Posts


Im building the Caldecraft snake and am baffled by the instructions for bulwark inner planking.

Looked at builds on here but can't see how it is supposed to work.

I gather that I should use the walnut planking as I will be using on the second external planking. The bulwarks don't fill all the gaps at each side of the gun ports. Do I find some wood and build a frame round them before planking?I understand I will need to paint around each gun port with red ochre. Any help /advice much appreciated. Thanks

There are no special considerations given for inner bulwark planking in these early CC kits. No gun port framing, either. This is all because the kit is targeted at beginner/intermediate modelers. Simply make sure the inner bulwark is covered with walnut, square off the ports, and paint. Any detailing beyond that is on your own!
