Good choice. Looking forward to seeing you get started on it!

 

I started the Phantom as my very first wooden ship model. I was building plastic ship model at the time. But, I enjoyed working in wood so much, I never went back to the plastic kit. That was close to 30 years ago (wow). 

 

Good luck with your build!

Okay here is some of the pictures of where I'm having trouble I got this kit in the pictures I'm going to post is what it was like gouges on the side and just down the back not really sure if that's how it comes but I think there's something wrong I've been trying to figure it out but with no luck if someone could please help me it would be very appreciated

Does the whole look okay or should I call them and try to get a different hole this one looks like a bit of a mess and I don't know if I can save it

I haven’t built this kit, but I did build the Model Shipways Sultana, which is a solid hull.  I recall there being templates.  I would recommend lining them up and trying to fit them before deciding on what needs done.

 

Also, remember that wood filler works wonders (I have used a lot of filler in my models) if the gouges penetrate below what needs removed during final shaping.

Building: 1:64 HMS Revenge (Victory Models plans)

1:64 Cat Esther (17th Century Dutch Merchant Ships)
 

On the building slip: 1:72 French Ironclad Magenta (original shipyard plans)

 

On hold: 1:98 Mantua HMS Victory (kit bash), 1:96 Shipyard HMS Mercury

 

Favorite finished builds:  1:60 Sampang Good Fortune (Amati plans), 1:200 Orel Ironclad Solferino, 1:72 Schooner Hannah (Hahn plans), 1:72 Privateer Prince de Neufchatel (Chapelle plans), Model Shipways Sultana, Heller La Reale, Encore USS Olympia

 

Goal: Become better than I was yesterday

I have the templates so I will go through that first but and if I have to use wood filler well that's what I'll use thank you very much for the reply Grandpa

It seems that I have found my problem I got a hold model ship ways they say that they've added wood to the Keel into the stern extra wood during the manufacture process so I have to adjust and make ensure that the hull is the same length and width with the templates that I have I'll have to take some off some areas  at the front and in about an eighth of an inch at the back will bring it down the size and the width so when I'm done everything should look fine see how it looks when iam done in Popeye the scale is 1/8

sand it down to see if it decreases the damage........then plank over the hull.  by doing so,  you can go a little beyond the excess material limits.  actually.  if you wanted ti try something out of the box,  cut off the bulwark material,  and scratch build the bulwarks after.   judging from the damage on the starboard side and the transom,  it might be another viable choice you can make.

Popeye along the Edge from the stern to the bow is to be 1/8 inch and the 1/32nd depth  I have to cut all the way around right where the damages but that may help I now have the solid Hall to its proper length that's what I've done
