Mickgee Posted July 29, 2017 Share #1 Posted July 29, 2017 Hello fellow modelers, I'm Michael Gray, born in Florida, retired now and living in Germany. After several years of scratch building model cars in brass, I think it's time to return to historical sailing vessels in wood. My fleet could use a new commissioning. The Occre Dos Amigos is in the works, nice ship my opinion. The wood doesn't make it though, but that's been taken care of already. So I'm slowly getting my hands and fingers up to the task, the hull has it's 1st planking, the deck is finished. But I'm stumped at how to apply the 2nd planks to the bow. I miscalculated how to do it, and am not sure if butted in is the way to go or not. It's not too late, just this step caused me to put the model aside, 5 years ago! But more of this later on, with pics of course. There are lots of very fine models here, breathtaking. You guys are great, Respect! I'll be working on my learning curve, and have a lot of looking around to do. What a wonderful pastime. Many thanks, Michael EJ_L, Ryland Craze, geoff and 3 others 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
