Le Camaret by greatgalleons - Constructo - 1:66 - aka A. Jorden

Recommended Posts

I'm currently building the Yacht America and waiting for better weather to put some final touches which require outdoors use.  


I started the model Le Camaret by constructo to keep my hands busy since most of the build will be using unpainted wood . 


the kit is a bit dated, the wood is very dry and brittle but should work just fine.

I soak the pine wood hull planking in water for about 30 minutes or more, I use a 2" pvc pipe with end cap filled with water. I use a heated plank bender also.

I will attempt to glue the Pine wood planks without tack holes so I use a technique using thumb tacks with wood spacer. 





I used this technique while hull planking the Model Shipways Confederacy, it work pretty well on that build.
