working on the Phantom, i read Interpreting Line Drawings for Ship Modelling by Russell Barnes . I understand what he is saying, my question is in order to get the hull perfect is it best to draw the lines  on both sides of the huill. or try to use just the mesurements?

My article was more about reading a lines drawing, especially if you ant to learn how to redraw a plan and draw your own frames. It really does not help much in fairing a solid hull.

 

Have you looked at the practica written by Chuck Passaro for the Phantom and Sultana kits? He discusses fairing a solid hull using the templates provided in the kit.

Russ, yes i was following his advise but the hull is not true 1 side is looks better than the other side. the templates get u close but not exact, maybe i didn't try hard enough?. i was thinking about drawing the 2 lines B1 & B2 on both sides of the model. it is too late for this model. i was thinking about the next ship model. i would like your opinion if this would help ?

Having not seen your model I cannot say very much. I would suggest posting some pics of each side and let's see what you are dealing with.

 

I would not think it absolutely necessary to get both sides to be exactly alike. They should be close, but so long as they are both smooth and close to the lines of the templates, you should be okay. If by B1 and B2 you mean the buttock lines, I would say no. Stick with the templates that they gave you.
