I haven’t Posted much because I am currently stalled while I wait for the UPS to arrive from Model Expo from whom I ordered a bunch of Tanganyika Wood.
I ran out of the .5 x 3mm Tanganyika Wood. Had to order some more… I swear, after I ordered it, it sat at “Processing” for nearly 3 Days until I got totally frustrated and wrote ol’ J Garcia at Model Expo an Email asking him “WTF?!?!!!!…” FINALLY, they shipped it and I’ve been checking UPS Tracking like 3 times per day, but it’s STILL “On the Way…”
I suppose I can soak and bend the 1.5 x 3mm Walnut for the Wale.
I used a Sharpie to add the “Oakum” to the sides of the Planks. Mainly because I felt guilty about forgetting to add the Oakum to the Lower Hill below the Wale. .. At least this way the Upper Hull Oakum catches the eye…
I was having some pressure problems so I added some Cheaters. ..
One thing you have to do with deck planks to simulate the caulking that’s in between each plank using like a number 6 b pencil and what you do is you get a few and then you scribe a bunch of them at once. I’d say maybe you like 5 80 mm long planks and just put them on a clip and just use a pencil across them all. I made the mistake of doing it one at a time and it’s better to get a bunch at once.
