  1. What an amazing achievement, Ed. You should be very proud of all you have accomplished on this project. You are a true inspiration.
  2. This might seem blasphemous, I have had good results with MDF for bulkheads. With care, it can be faired as easily as plywood. It is often much straighter and less prone to warping than traditional ply.
  3. Immensely impressive. I've learned so much from this thread. I can't wait to see what's next for you.
  4. That looks just incredible, Chuck! Re: your planking tutorial, I think you gave me PTSD. The thinnest planks on my terror model were 1/16, and some at the wales were over 8 scale inches (close to 11/32)! Never again.
  5. Barry, thank you so much. I'm happy to know someone with your interests will be building the kit. More to come here soon; my model is on display, but I have some backlog of work to post, and some new fittings I'll be working on over the coming year.
  6. Thanks for the wonderful review. While I wasn’t involved with the design of the kit, it is based on my original research and plans from my ongoing Terror build: Those interested in the ship may want to check it out. Also, Ages of Sail has a pretty fantastic starter package on sale now with the kit, which includes a complete set of tools, including a plank bender, for less than $300, if I recall. Thanks for again for the review!
  7. Thanks for the explanation Chuck. It's a great idea for a kit; planking is so daunting and mysterious for newcomers. Can't wait to watch this develop.
  8. Wow excellent! I’m looking forward to seeing how you create the pre-spiled planks! I’ve seen them in some Chinese and Russian kits and I can’t wait to see the method used to create them. You are a kit/part building machine, Chuck. And with all your other work and leadership for the hobby too numerous to list...you are an inspiration, indeed!
