Re: Caldercraft Victory By Bob

Starting to look like Victory Bob,presumably you checked the levels across the opposing ports at Upper deck/Quarterdeck levels, always gives a little buzz of satisfaction when that little bubble sits dead centre. Do you intend to use filler blocks between the first few frames fore and aft below the...

Re: Caldercraft Victory By Bob

If you're using pva glue Bob you could try Isoproponal, by degrees it will loosen joints.

Re: Caldercraft Victory By Bob

Neat job on the four butt shift Bob. Like Pete I favour running an indelible marker down one edge of a plank only. I use a Pilot super colour marker with a broad chisel point. This dries instantly and does not bleed into the surrounding wood. I have reservations about marking the caulking insitu be...

Re: HMS Agamemnon

Excellent update Hartmut, interesting and very effective method of doing the yard octagonals from round stock, and an excellent result.

I'm away from my books at the moment, so I can't help re serving the first topmast shrouds, but it didn't come instantly to mind, as the lower shrouds would, so perhaps this wasn't the case.
