  1. Funnily enough I was thinking about the hull painting on my Endeavour and think will go for the natural wood look.
  2. I found the tool rest too short in width, but also the tightening knob would also get in the way of the cutting tool. I've since replaced the plastic knob supplied with a wingnut arrangement which is much better.
  3. Love your work. The attention to detail is amazing. I'm hoping to use a lot of your great photos and information about this build with my own attempt at the Dreadnought. I have the Pontos PE, but am also sourcing other companies to complement the build. Thanks for the great contribution you have made to this great ship.
  4. Can someone let me know the recommended internal dimensions of a display case for the Caldecraft Endeavour 1/64 scale ship? I'm making a wooden glass display case but haven't yet completed the model.
  5. Thankyou Hsae The figures are in fact Gunthwaite figures.
  6. Just a quick note to say how much I admire your build log. Excellent detail followed by excellent photos. Very inspiring, and sets a very high standard.
  7. Thanks for the help guys! appreciate the feedback. I have looked at a lot of views of planked hulls on the internet and have seen the majority appear to have the planks below the wales butting the sides of the planks above. Including the Endeavour replica ship! However It does appear more aesthetic if not realistic to have the planks all meeting the stem.
  8. Thanks normanh. I agree with the bulkheads. managed to finish the planking in this area finally. Need to sand and varnish later.
  9. Hi I'm at the 2nd planking stage of my Caldecraft Endeavour ship. If you look at the attached photos you can see where I have got so far. I have still to complete the planking and do the final sanding. I need some advice as to the best way to lay the final planks. And how to bring the planks forward to the bow and back to the stern. I presume drop planks/steaslers are required, but I'm not sure how to do this? Any advice would be very appreciated.
  10. Very definitely. Have you read 'The Cruel Sea'? a contemporary count of a corvette such as this.
