  1. Hi Allan Many thanks for a very informative booklet. Although I have completed 4 builds (and about to finish my 5th) there is always something to learn in this very enjoyable hobby! Cheers..............Fernando
  2. Hello Doris Your work is absolutely stunning.....a work of art. I have been following your work for some time and to see what you have done over the past years has been nothing but spectacular. You are in a class of your own. Many thanks for sharing your work . Cheers................Fernando
  3. I've got this model on the shelf...will be next when I finish the Perseverance which is still on the workbench! I'll follow along for the ride. Cheers.............Fernando
  4. Many thanks Rod. Work in the boatyard has stalled somewhat due to other commitments (work, new grandchild etc) but am hoping to move ahead with soon. Cheers.........Fernando
  5. Hello and a warm welcome from down south in Sydney. I've built two Modellers Central kits and am on my third one......(very slow progress on the current build due to work and other commitments )and can recommend their kits. They have detailed instructions on all their models (full colour and easy to follow) and they also have DVD's so you can watch an experienced model maker explain the build you choose step by step. As a newbie I found the DVD's extremely helpful Cheers and enjoy your new hobby.............Fernando
  6. I soak mine in boiling water and slowly bend them. I bought a pair of planking crimps early on, used it a couple of times then have been kept it in the bottom drawer ever since. Boiling water is the go! Cheers.........Fernando
  7. Dan Great news and like so many other have already said, I look forward to many more of your very instructive and beautiful modelling updates. Cheers............Fernando
  8. I agree Troy. I was given a packet of these some years ago. I have only ever used them once and they were a waste of time. Cheers...........Fernando
  9. Welcome aboard Stephen Cheers...... Fernando
  10. A brief update on where I'm at. It has been slow progress to date as work and family commitments have been keeping me away from the shipyard. I've started on the ratlines and will send photos as soon as I have made progress on them. In the meantime the standing rigging is almost complete. Cheers..........Fernando
  11. Hi Troy, definitely square. I had the same issue but on going forward a few pages I noticed Photo 35 on sheet 13 that the first layer of planking shows it as square. See the photo of what I did below Cheers........Fernando
  12. Hi Troy I had the same issue on my model and worked around it after much cutting and pasting and sanding.....the end result was fine (I think!) Good luck with your model Cheers............Fernando
