V108 Torpedo Boat by Richmond - Digital Navy - 1:200 - CARD - ABANDONED


Recommended Posts

I have decided to build the V108 using the tutorial produced by Chris.

 

Well, I have downloaded the files and have mounted the required parts onto 1mm white card laminated with an extra sheet of index card to achieve the 1.5mm thickness required, which I will not bore you with.

 

I will be running this build concurrently with the RMS Mauretania build also in card.

 

I will update with photographs as the build develops in due course.

I have stuffed up already - I have laminated to 1.5mm and not 1mm as I was laminating along with my Mauretania build which was 1.5mm  - I am going to stick with the 1.5mm though and see how it goes  - this is all about practice. I will probably revert to above waterline as the parts are so small.

Since your parts will be 1.5mm thick, you will need to widen the slots accordingly, a little on each side, in order to achieve the proper fit. Should be something you can work around in some cases. However, in other instances, it's going to cause some headaches. For example, if you add an extra 0.5mm of thickness to both the base plate and the deck, then your hull sides will wind up being 1mm too short. All in all, it'll probably save you a lot of hassle to just re-start with new laminated stock of the correct thickness.

 

Cheers,

Thank you for your kind attention.

 

I had thought of about this but didn't think the 1mm could be that critical. However I think I am safe to stick with the individual bulkheads and longitudinal elements at 1.5mm +, in fact I am already making the slots wider, that just leaves me the horizontals to re laminate in 1mm.

 

Thankfully card is so cheap in terms of stuff ups.

Trust me Richmond - 0.1mm is critical when it comes to Card Modelling, let alone a whole 1mm :D.

The V108 has been on the back burner somewhat as I struggle through the RMS Mauretania skeleton and dedicate a lot of my spare time to some building work at home. Anyway I am pleased to announce some minor progress, with the skeleton assembled along with the top deck. I will undertake some minor trimming and sanding before I attempt the skin. I think I will need to weigh down the ends before I skin to rid myself of the longitudinal warp.
