darr Posted March 16, 2016 Share #1 Posted March 16, 2016 (edited) Hi all , So as I have a few days away from the office I decided to make a start on my Bluenose from model shipways . I'm not going to put up more pics of the actual kit as I found lots on here already . This is my first kit and I thought about buying the practicum from llc and still might if I get in to too much trouble . So to say it's a little daunting is an understatement ... I have built model aircraft a few years ago but my day job is on computer code and I'm not exactly a renowned handy man ... My wife is still waiting on some shelves to be put up a few years later .. Anyway I have unpacked and checked everything and all seems correct , I have studied some of ship modelling simplified and want to make a start on the keel so that it would be set for the weekend but already have a few questions .. So 1st off my work bench is actually my wife's craft table so if you spot a lot of weird stuff on it , that's her's So I cut out the 3 keel sections And as you can see from photo 2 the stern keel is about 1 mm out of line from the center at the bottom it's fine at the top the bow end is fine Workspace Stern & center lower join Close up I also had a question around if I should mark the reference line before gluing and any advice on doing this correctly ? Should I sand the laser burn marks off ? Sorry for what I am sure are basic questions !!!!
