fletch944t Posted December 4, 2014 Share #1 Posted December 4, 2014 I wasn't really sure where to ask this question because there doesn't seem to be forum for asking questions regarding general modeling techniques. But, I figured this was probably the most appropriate place to ask this question. As the topic title implies, I'm currently working on modeling the small boats for my build. I'm experimenting with several different types of small boat construction, including POF and breadboard. Anyway, I built a small boat using the breadboard construction technique (which I've come to like a lot better now that I've actually tried it). I decided to use styrene strips to add the frame members to the boat (since it's going to be painted anyway). I started gluing the strips in using CA glue. When I was almost finished gluing all the strips, I hated the way it was looking. There were places where I had obviously gotten a little to much glue on the strips. Consequently, it just didn't look real. And, I didn't think that paint would cover up my errors. So, I've started over. I've removed all of the strips, redid the interior of the boat, and I'm ready to start adding the strips again. So, my question is this - is there a better way to do this? Should I be using something other than CA glue? Would it be easier to control the amount of glue using a gel CA glue? Is there a trick to getting the styrene strips installed in the boat? Or is it simply that I need more practice doing this? Thanks,Fletch Debra 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
