  1. Nice job man, I am about 25% done with this kit, got side tracked with a dollhouse kit, and lost my picture instructions! Thanks for posting the pictures about the kit pieces not fitting, it seems everything piece I got with the kit is off. pain in the a$$
  2. I haven't had a chance to touch up the grates yet, just wanted to get them placed. Also I need to do some fins touched on the cabin door yet, a little raw
  3. It's been a busy time of year, finally spent a few hours on the boat Here I measured and placed the pin rack and the grating on the deck The wonderful kit provided posts were too small for the 1.5x3mm walnut pin rack so I went to a 1mmx3mm walnut piece, worked fine The grating was a pain in the a*s, first time making one, at least now I know how to do it correctly. lol
  4. I will figure it out, just in shock that AL thinks two pictures and a paragraph are sufficient for planking instructions. I do not really need them but that stern is a pain in the a**. Also there is no guidance on how to build the boards behind the pile of boxes. They go into detail about how to build the box but not that piece, lol. I am just venting more than anything, never built an AL kit before.
  5. Well, this has been on my shelf forever so I thought I would dust it off. I know this forum is no stranger to this kit so I am going to try to focus on the work after the first hull planking This is my first AL kit, and I can honestly say these instructions are horrible. There is no direction for some of the prominent items on the deck. Also, the stern / bulwark planking is the most frustrating planking I have yet to encounter in my few years of this hobby. Here are some early pictures of the hull now that I have the first layer on, very raw yet.
  6. Thanks for checking out my painfully slow build log, now I have motivation to get this going this weekend! lol
  7. tasanhalas - use the same wood as you used for railing, 2x5mm or 2x4mm beech wood. just cut out the notches with a blade, fairly easy
  8. I bought a Master airbrush kit off Amazon a few years ago around $75, played around with the cheap airbrush until I knew what I was doing. Buying an airbrush is like buying a guitar. You don't know if you will enjoy it, so don't go an buy a $400 toy to sit in a closet. Once I got the hang of airbrushing I moved to a more advanced "cheap" airbrush, a Master G233. As long as I keep it clean I can do decent work, here is a picture of a 1/72 Bf109 that I finished last October with the Master starter kit. Not exactly museum quality, but proof that a starter kit can get you a decent
  9. Got her done! Added a few coiled lines on the cabin and deck. Into the display case and on to the next project!
