LouF Posted December 7, 2022 Share #1 Posted December 7, 2022 Hi all. Seeking some advice on planking. I just purchased the Billings Calypso (1:45). It comes with a plastic hull. For "authenticity" purposes I am thinking of actually wood planking the hull by covering the plastic with wood. I have three questions: I am not familiar with 1:45 so what would the correct widths and lengths of most of the planking be for this scale. Near the bow and the bottom of the ship it will make sense to keep the plastic. What material would you use the make for a smooth and seamless transition from the wood to plastic? Any additional tips? Thank you so much for your insights. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
