doghomer Posted September 20, 2013 Share #1 Posted September 20, 2013 I have recently purchased a Artesania Latina model kit of the RMS Titanic’s Lifeboat. This kit was labeled “Beginner”. Although I have built several solid hull models this was to be my first plank on frame model and of course never tried to build a lap strake or clinker built model. In the instruction book furnished with the kit I was surprised to find only one short paragraph devoted to the planking of this model and essentially it said overlap the 1.5 x 7 mm planks by 2 mm. There was nothing not even a hint about tapering the planks at the bow and stern nor fitting them into the stem and stern or any bending or fitting problems one might encounter. My question is can anyone of you suggest a book which might enlighten me on the subject of clinker built models and/or have any ideas how to proceed. Thank you.
