Hello everyone, this is my first wooden ship model I have ever built and I'm determined to make a beautiful ship! I've ran into quite an embarrassing road-block my first day and I would like a little help. The first photo is my ship, the second photo is another person's ship. The top frame pieces on my ship are not flush to the keel like they should be on the second photo. The instructions with this kit are not clear at all, am I supposed to cut a larger opening to fit the pieces better? Please excuse my ignorance and thank you for your help! above is my ship
I have found in several instructions especially from AL that you should plank the hull before adding the keel to the false keel. Wonder if it isn't better to add it before planking, this in order to get the correct rabbet line? Anyone who knows better? Thank you
