Victory_Aus Posted March 23, 2014 Share #1 Posted March 23, 2014 Hi All, I actually already posted this question but it seems to have disappeared from the forum via a technical glitch. I'm building a 1:150 mamola HMS Victory. There are a series of small "L" shaped pieces that need to be made out of 1mm x 10mm mahogany veneer strip. I'm finding this to be very difficult, not because of the scale, i.e 5-10mm but due to the timber always splitting and falling apart. When by some miracle I get the shape close they crumble to pieces when a whole is drilled into it. I use a small bastard file to shape The piece and understand the concept of using the wood grain to advantage. Can any of the pro's advise how best to do this? It's a bit disheartening when I'm stuck on the first page of the instructions LOL I'm using the scraps of the1mm mahogany threeply as a work around and that seems to do the trick but not as good. Thanks Jarrod Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
