HMS Snake by Vane - Caldercraft - Scale 1:64

Recommended Posts

I got several kits going on at the same time. When it come to planking its kind of effective to do two alternatively. You put a board up on one… and then do the other kit while waiting for the first one to dry.

Thanks, i really enjoy this part of the work and snake is kind of straight on model with not too much planning and thinking. I done a few misstakes that take some extra time but soon the hull will be finished and next stage of the building process will began.

Hi Vane,

I have enjoyed looking through your build log, l will have to find your others too. It certainly sounds a good idea to alternate between builds while waiting for the glue to dry. Your second planking is very good indeed, are you using wood glue or a super glue?

Keep up the good work.

Best wishes  as always, 

The Lazy Saint.

Thanks. You can find quick links to my other builds at the end of the first post. I am also doing the Granado, Diana and Corels Victory. 

 

I mostly do wood glue. But I am slowly moving towards CA. It takes some time to learn and I am not there yet.  Lots of planks get more stuck to my fingers than the hull 😛

Ha ha, l know what you mean, l had a practice with CA, but only on the deck which is much less challenging. With practice we will get there.

Here are some of the better buildlogs I have found on HMS Snake. There are quite many in the MSW overview but many abandoned so my advice is to check out these first:

1) Almost finished build by Beef Wellington - Unfortunately put on hold as he is building the HMS Jason

2) Almost finished build by Jim Smiths - Great build
3) Almost finished build by drtrap - Great build
4) Recently started build by duncbe - Early in the process, but really good planking!

Hey Vane. If you want to add a signature go to your account settings at the top. Go to signature and within there is a button to link you're builds.

Hi Vane,

Good job, she is coming along great. You are right about the gunports being so visible when the build is finished and it is no easy task to get them perfect either. 

Good luck. 

Best wishes as always, 

The Lazy Saint.

Hi Vane,

l hope I am not over simplifying things but is the waterline not marked on your plans/drawings. I have taken these measurements and adjusted my waterline marker so that is correct for both bow and stern. I then drew the line.

I hope my explanation helps, if l have miss understood you please excuse me.

Best wishes as always, 

The Lazy Saint.

So this is quite late, but look in your account settings. I took a screen shot on Mobile that will hopefully help.

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal.
