After following the Instructions and the diagrams, I have come to find out that the Instructions were very deficient! ..
Now I’m having to rework the Bulwarks on both the Quarterdeck and Poop Deck, Main Deck and the Forecastle.
I will Plane the excess down and sand it.
Using some 3mm x 7mm Manzonia for the Main Deck Bulwarks…
Cutting it perfectly was a trick. I go just a smidgen over and use a file to bring it down.
I also used Contact Cement and Superglue for this.
I was looking at the Forecastle bulwark and I realized that I need to add some more Planks to it, so I added the Caprails.
I had the perfect wood for it too. Some Flexible Beechwood that I have for another project. I love this wood because it bends right around against the grain without soaking, etc.
(Only problem with this wood is that it’s super expensive)
Last night I glued the Starboard side on with the Flexible Beechwood.
I glued it using alternative SuperGlue and Titebond II.
I worked pretty good. I did it like this because of sanding. That Contact Cement isn’t very sandable.
Anyway… On the Port side, I decided to use Dap Weldwood Contact Cement since there really wasn’t much sanding involved
Also to reinforce it, I added SuperGlue along the length of the seam… Let it soak a but and pressed it down.
It turned out really nice.
