jdbradford Posted August 6, 2014 Share #1 Posted August 6, 2014 !!!Correction to the scale 1:80 is what it should have been. Sorry for the confusion.!!! Well, I am finally starting my build log. After much help from Richard, Dave, Floyd and others, I have my planking started. I won't post the pictures of the materials as others have already done that, and I am past that point anyway. I did build the boom and mast to start as per the instructions. As we have seen in the other logs, they are not used at this time in the project anyway. I also have one coat of flat white paint on them. I must say again, the hinge that is nailed to the mast end of the boom was a pain for me. In the mast drawing, it appears that the measurement listed to the first ring of 188mm is wrong. It is no more than about 20 mm above where the boom hinge is attached. I just used the drawing to lay it out. I also did not get the holes as I would have liked. I need a small drill press and a jig to hold the item in the correct position. schnu 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
