Atlantis (HSK 2) by WayneR - JSC


Recommended Posts

JSC has multiple ways of building the hull. This one I didn't know.

Warning: tolerances are quite low, especially when starting the hull. Make sure you work as precise as possible.

Question: do you have a scanner/printer? If so, it may be worthwhile to scan the kit, and use the scan to provide spare parts, or test-parts for the difficult parts.

Question: are you scribing the folding lines with a blunt needle or something? 

Doing that helps getting a crisp fold, and at the place you want it to be.

the real pro's are even fussing about on which side you need to do your scribing, but actually, I never see the difference in my results.

(perhaps my fault, or eyesight)

Hi Chris,

 

doing the guns of my De Ruyter, I actually deviated from the rule you gave: the paint had a very high tendency to break at the scoring.

Someone suggested to di the scoring on the other side. It made a difference wrt the cracking (although: small). The quality of the print is the weak point of JSC: not completely waterproof, and rather easily cracking at bends.... (based on two models: axeldijk and De Ruyter)
