and so much smaller than I thought it was Ian, thanks for the thumb scale :D


Hi Mark, measured it today as it stands on the stand

140mm long but this includes the exstra ends I added, so the original lenght would have been 120mm
155mm wide
165mm high

Enjoying this very much Ian. As an aside, have you built the DeAg Victory cross section. If not, I'm sure you'd enjoy it. It's one of the best cross section kits (if not the best) that I've seen.
Cheers

Hi Mark, thanks for looking in as to the DeAg version no I don't have that one, I have the Corel Verison of the cross section. I opened it and looked at the instructions some 20+ years ago and thought I needed more practise before I started it but I'll start in one day :think:

So I've repaired my blunder.

Then added the final layer.

Dry fitted the outer porthole casing.

While adding the outer bands to the hull.

Image

The centre clamp must have moved while the glue was setting as I ended up with a nice bow in the wooden strip. So I had to strip the plank off.
Image

And then remove some of the strips.
Image

Then glue new strips in.
