Based on the instructions that came with my kit, I went ahead and beveled the edges of the bulkheads (a rough fairing, if you will) before they were all glued into the center keel. In hindsight (and part of me knew it at the time), this was not the best course of action. Now that everything is together, I'm noticing a few bulkheads where the angle of the bevel I used is a little too extreme. If I wanted to patch these up a bit so that I could perform a better fairing, could I use wood filler on the edges of the bulkheads, waiting for it to cure before sanding it to the right angle?
Greetings. I'm about to ship out another wonderful kit from Amati; their Pegasus model. As with Lady Nelson, the the frame is constructed with MDF instead of plywood. I would like to get some opinions about how this material compares with good, old, plywood? Is there a limit to the size of model that can use this stuff? Has anyone broken such a frame during construction? In considering future laser-cutting, I am considering sourcing and using this material. What do you think?
