LMDAVE Posted June 13, 2014 Share #1 Posted June 13, 2014 I'm starting my second wooden build. I've have been eying this build for a while, but always looked at the 1:35 kit. After seeing how big the 1:35 is (4 ft long 5 ft high), I saw Amati offered a 1:80 that was plank on frame also. So, that is the route I went. I see there is another build of this scale active (Henry James) which hopefully we can help each other. The drawings and instructions are not near as detail as the MS Bluenose, and are not in English, but hopefully I can follow along well with the experience I had from my first build. I'm looking forward to the painting of the hull. The combination of natural wood, white water line and blue should look fantastic if done right. I all boils down to the second layer of planking at the bottom since that will be seen. For some reason they show the first step of assembling the main mast. I'm skipping that and going straight to the keel assembly. Anyway, here are some kit pictures. pete48, MarisStella.hr, jdbradford and 2 others 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
