Hi. New from UK

Hello, just started modelling. Bought a Mantua model and dry fitted a lot of parts. The pieces all look good to my inexperienced eye but the instructions are hopeless. The model is a 1:40 Viking Ship. It seems to me that the biggest challenge for me at this point is going to be the planking ( so glad I started with a relatively simple model) Is there any helpful links on this site for 'planking for beginners'? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, Frosty.

 

Have a look here. The link takes you to one of the pages at our parent organization, the Nautical Research Guild. Lots of other resources available there as well. Enjoy looking around!

 

Cheers,

Chris
