helm108 Posted December 1, 2013 Share #1 Posted December 1, 2013 It begins. This is my second ship build. My first was the Adventure pirate sloop by Amati. That one took me 3 years to finish. I move slow. That was maybe 3 years ago that I finished it. Thought I'd go with the Syren as my second because of its great full color instructions. Here's how she looks at the end of Chapter 1. I've been reading through a lot of logs on the Syren trying to figure out how to best handle my next steps, but I have a few n00b questions: What's the best way to bevel the bulk heads? With a hobby knife or sanding? When should I be beveling the bulk heads? Before or after I glue them onto the former? What should I be using as filler blocks? 1"x 2" balsa wood? Thanks for any help. I'm just trying to be careful on this one. My Adventure ended up looking bulgey at each bulkhead, and I want to make sure I avoid that with the Syren.
