Stubby Posted September 25, 2015 Share #1 Posted September 25, 2015 So I've taken advantage of the Model Expo sale to purchase a model of the U.S. Brig Syren, and am anxiously awaiting its arrival. While I wait I thought I would pull this little longboat out of the closet and work up to the far more intricate model. So, I don't have the time that I would like, but kicked off this build by glueing the keel into a single piece, shaping the bearding line and glueing it to the false keel. The directions stated that the pieces were "delicate" and to handle with care - they weren't kidding! I broke the false keel three times working on the bearding line (I broke the same place twice). Luckily it glued back together nicely, and now glued to the keel it is a bit stronger. So that's it. A small beginning, but a beginning nonetheless. mtaylor, GuntherMT, Ryland Craze and 1 other 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
