Estimating the amount of scale lumber needed for a scratch build...

Recommended Posts

There hasn't been a question I've asked yet that hasn't yielded the most excellent answers and advice. So here goes again...




I'm planning a scratch build of a 102' ship in 1/48 scale. I need to purchase scale lumber for planking the deck and hull (each will be double planked as in the original ship). I recall a couple of posts on the old boards about estimating the amount of lumber, but I can't seem to find any here.




Does anyone have any tricks or tips for estimating the amount of lumber required for a scratch build?
