bronxboy Posted March 5, 2015 Share #1 Posted March 5, 2015 After 17 years I came a across a box with virtually all the parts to the USS CONSTELLATION wooden model kit I once started and never got around to working on. Now retired, I looked at was done, and must say it was done poorly with no forethought and planning. I had gotten as far as placing the frames to false hull, the decks atop and catwalks, and about 40% of the distorted planking. I decided to remove all the planking. In doing so, some of the nails did not all come out, and were clipped off, meaning the remnants of those nails are embedded within some of the frames. I then sanded frames, and see the frames are not all even for re-planking. Have read some, so far on how to best plank, but given the condition of the frames, I don'tknow if re-planking will provide good results, or to just scap what was done and order the parts from Artesania Latino, as I have already ordered and received the new planks. I prefer the challenge of the former, and therefore ask people in the know, like yourselves, what is best to do in obtaining positive results by replanking to the existing frames? I have attached three photos of the now 'unplanked' frames I would like to replank. Look to hear from some one(s) on the matter. Thanks in advance. Best regards to all. Vince.
