  1. Thanks Jason, sorry for late reply but last months I not really been logging in since I have been focused on my plastic models. Hope to pick this up soon. I am not anywhere near coppering yet but I just received a package from Cornwall model boats with the Amati plates (UK is about to leave the EU and there will probably be more expensive to get supplies after that). When I compare my Speedy with my Snake, I realise that the Caldercraft copper will not work on the Diana.
  2. My Granado is not the top priority for the moment. I never done any treenailing yet, but for every model I try to raise the bar so we will see when I get there.
  3. The gunports will take some time. Alot of measuring, carving and filing to get this right. I will deviate from the instructions and try to make the ports parallell to the deck so the 18 pounders sets nicely in the middle. I didnt use the template simply because its complete square and that dont go well with her lines.
  4. I thought the cannons where a bit weak so i decided to upgrade to 18pounders.. nobody will mess with this Speedy on the 7 seas!
  5. Actually i have ordered new diamond files that are arriving tomorrow. Perhaps they will be up for the task. Otherwise i think there will be a combination of tools from various knifes, small razorsaws to files.
  6. Its actually quite different to work on Diana when I gotten used to my Speedy build. Everything is so large and instead of finetuning various tiny PE pieces I got to do "hard" woodwork with real tools... both kits have their charm but in completely different ways. Perhaps you can restart the work on your Diana if you not feel comfortable with the MDF.
  7. If you are going to use copper or paint white, you only need to get the upper planks perfect. And those are much easier because of less bending.
