  1. Thanks Rick Yes have been soaking and then bending. Letting them dry when the are all clamped on the boat. Leaving overnight or at least 4 hours before unclamping then glueing and clamping again. I think it maybe too humid in the house?? When the glue up I push them all together then reclamp and leave for at least 12 hours. They have all gapped. I agree wood putty may be the way to go unless I pull them all off and start again. Going to have a big think about it today. May start again I think. Col
  2. Gday So I started the build a week ago, rainy cold winters weekend here in Canberra AUS. First ever wooden model, so it should be interesting. I chose the kit as it seems people recommended it as a beginners kit, so why not? I had a look through numerous build logs to get an idea on what was involved, and luckily there is miles of really good information and handy tips on how it all works.

  3. No worries. Will put it in the build log.
  4. Gday All Wow I never thought there would be someone close Mike. Good to know. And yes I will take the advice. I started the build Sunday (It was raining so couldn't forge a modelling hammer I am making). Photos taken but I will hold off putting it up until I get a bit further along. Watch this space!!
  5. G'day All Looks like I'm not the only member from Australia. Just getting into the hobby. Only just bought the HMS Endeavour Longboat, and keen to get a start on the model. Have read all the build logs from other members. And will take all recommendations. May not post a build log as yet, but I will wait and see. Have been doing plastic models for years and am a keen woodworker. Also make knives on the side. Loving the hints and tips from other members. Seems like a great source of info and advice.
