  1. SS, welcome to MSW. Stow your gear in a build log and join us for the journey.
  2. Allan, I would think the longevity of masking tape would depend on several factors. Natural, exposed to heat, 20 years? The way I've used it, it's painted, CA glued at the ends, and poly encapsulated. I can't even hazard a guess how long it will last in that state. I know it's very hard to remove as I redid the bow gun tracks and it didn't want to be removed!
  3. Joe, I use one inch 3M masking tape for all my banding as I am absolutely the worst at metal working. I lay out a five inch piece on a piece of wood and then cut to the desired width.

  5. Tom, nice! Did our uncle say where and how he came by this little project he's saddled you with?
  6. Captain Stama, welcome to MSW. Enjoy yourself, just don't spill anything.
  7. In figure 13/2 inboard of the ladders it looks like a window, maybe? or pin rails?, it's hard to tell by the drawing. Obviously OcCre interpreted them as being pin rails.
