Hello! I’m new to the forum and model ship building in general, although I’m absolutely loving it.
I bought the HMS Valiant by Mamoli and have just about finished the first layer of planking, I have a fair bit more smoothing and filling to do to get it exactly how I want it before I start the second layer. However, last night I thought I would have a look at the timbers for the second stage and try and sort them out in to order of planking so I can get my head around what to do. In doing so however I realised just how poor the instructions for the Mamoli kit are, I’m really struggling in a box full of timbers to understand if I have the right ones picked out and in the right order, and at one step the instructions mention creating the upper sheer strake from three separate pieces but in the box I appear to have 2 timbers with a pre cut groove closely resembling the sheer strake.
Do you have any tips on what to do or does anyone have any experience they can share on Mamoli kits?
Thanks in advance!
