jnarro Posted April 12, 2014 Share #1 Posted April 12, 2014 I´ve been a plastic modeler all my life and now it´s time to start a new adventure. I choose the Mayflower because it´s significant and historic value, it´s pretty and of a good size; so I hope to finish this project happily. I intend to build a decent log of the building process, all of my tools are ready I feel ready and may the force be with me... So here is the box and what it´s inside; everything seems OK, I intend to build this ship very carefully and by the book as much as possible The first thing is to glue the Rabbet Strip along the bottom of the bulkhead, but the stern has to be tapered from 3/16" to 3/32", so I decided to do this first and then glue the Rabbet Strip. For making my job easier i made a strip of yellow Masking tape 3/32" wide and glued to the bottom as much precise as I could, for an easy sanding. Then I used a Squadron Shop coarse filing stick for the sanding with a finishing touch of Micromesh 1800 (green), looks that the tapared section is ready. So far this is my beginning, next step is gluing the Rabbet Strip, I will attach in my next post this. Please any help you experts can give will be very, very much appreciated, if any of you start building plastic model airplanes I can be of help!!
