redwards Posted April 27, 2014 Share #1 Posted April 27, 2014 I am sure this has been covered and if I was better at IT I would do a build log. Buidling HMS Swift all going ok till now. the planks despite being wet and pretty bendy wont curve nicely at the bow and even worse I am one plank short. Ever the improviser I have cut another one form the ply template blank that the deck blank was in, This has broken when being bent despite being very wet. I am sure I can repair as its first plank layer. but my bow planks do not cure as nicely as i would like. Anyone got any ideas??? this is a small model so the planks are small, as my Wife has got sick of dusting "Norske Love", which I built over 20 years ago. I have to say I love the build, its a challenge the plans are not as good as they could be and the English is god fun to read Am I missing a trick doing my plank bending please?. I should say I tapered all at bow and stern so almost no filling required. Isnt it fun creating a real beautiful model from a lot of flat planks and sheets so you see a curvy 3 dimensional piece of practical art Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
