  1. I recently started a build of the Danmark by Billings which I started nearly 30 years ago and then let sit idle during several moves over the years. It received some damage during this time which I've repaired. Upon starting it up again I've noted that some3 of the wood pars aren't laser cut but just printed on the wood and need to be manually cut out (which is a lot more work and prone to errors). Enclosed are photos of its current state. I will start on the planking next. The instruction manual is mostly useless with the exception of the drawings.
  2. After a long pause (almost 30 years) the first picture of the Danmark building process. I have finished the planking of the main deck. There is a difference in colour, because the new wood has been in the box and the wood that had been glued to the deck has been exposed to light. I hope that after sanding the deck with fine sandpaper (400) this wil disappear. Furthermore the deck has to be varnished in wood colour. That leads me to some questions. - what colour should I use for the deck ( I.e. oak or Mahoney etc.), and shoul I use varnish from the DIY store, or is there special modelling varnish? - on the boards I have glued some planks that are thicker than the deck planks. I am planning to sans them an varnish them, however on pictures of the ship I saw that this is metal. I am not sure if this is done later (as the ship was launched in 1932). Or would this be a builders decision? Any advice on this is welcome! As final remark, this. Is my first wooden Billing Boats kit. Time will tell whether I should have started with a simpler kit 😀. Best regards, Ben
  3. Here are some pics of my attempt at bashing a Billings Danmark. The model was started by another person who unfortunately will never see the finished model. (how often does that happen) It was just a painted hull when I started. I stripped and refinished, then laid the decks. It's pretty much scratch from there. Some components from the kit are being used, turnbuckles, belaying pins for example. Allan
  4. Hello I use Google translate so excuse if the translation gets weird. Here I was going to write about the construction of Billing boats Denmark. I have tried to build several boats before but either I get stuck in some problem or I lose interest. This time around, I have the goal of just building on whatever happens. I do not have the ambition that it will be something fantastic but just ok. One thing I have trouble with is bending the 2 mm thick plywood that sits at the top of the sides of the boat. I have already managed to break such a part when I tried to bend it over steaming water. Should it be soaked and if so how long? So far I have come. Only the deck in the middle is glued, the rear deck is only fixed with a few screws. Here is a small problem, the deck goes 3 mm outside the frame. The plywood to be glued is only 2 mm.
