18th Century Armed Longboat by alichty044 - Model Shipways - Scale 1:24 - Small - First Wooden Ship Build


Recommended Posts

Hello Everybody!

 

I was encouraged to start a build log.  I stated that once I received the replacement part from Model Expo that I would do just that.  I received my package on Friday and so I am now going to begin my log. Let me apologize in advance for all of the "basic" questions that I will have along the way.  As I have previously stated, I am very eager to learn from all of the incredibly talented people on this forum.

 

The first picture is of my workspace (it's a good thing that I am single lol)1065762875_MyWorkspace-Resized.JPG.b2ae1dad44aa8fa218f14695b3a4904b.JPG

The keel and false keel are not yet glued in the following picture but soon will be:D

 

Please, if anybody sees something that i have done (or am doing) incorrectly, tell me - I promise that I won't be offended

Well.... My entry into this hobby has not been kind to me lol.  First, I break the bow portion of the false keel off.  Then I accidentally stabbed myself in the finger with my XACTO blade. Now this...

 

When I came home from work, I was excited to begin working; however, this excitement was short lived.  When I picked up the freshly glued keel/false keel assembly, I noticed that it was seriously twisted.  As I was working on each portion individually, I never noticed anything that would give me any indication that this was even a remote concern.

 

So it's time for my first question - I am using Titebond III.  What do I use to debond the glue?  I believe I have read that you use acetone.  Can I use nail polish remover or do I need a more concentrated solution? If I need a more concentrated solution, where can I purchase it?

 

Allow me to post some pictures so that you can see what I am talking about.

 

This first picture just is looking along the keel
