shihawk Posted February 22, 2014 Share #1 Posted February 22, 2014 Hi all .I just bought a billings Victory 1:75 and hope to start building in the next few weeks The timber provided is satisfactory for a painted model but as i intend to try the natural wood finish i need to replace all but the first planking. As infomation provided is a bit vague to say the least im wondering what width of wood to order.They sent 4 mm for the decking which i assume would be about right width but its ANNEGRE and in my opinion to dark . The second hull planking is 1.8 x 7mm OBECHI and i think too wide and not a suitable for second planking. Would 4mm be more the size for this scale??? I want to use wood whicw is readily available ( from CMB ) and have been considering MANZONI or BOKAPI for the hull and LIME or MUKALY for the decks .I havent used any of these before but the samples i ordered look very good .If anyone has experience of these as regards varnishing etc i would be very interested.thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
