[quote=arpurchase]Blink The pen you have used has bled into the wood so no amount of sanding will straighten out the caulking lines. Best to have used a pencil to do this its a mistake I made also many moons ago apart from that the planks are tidy and well laidCool [/quote

beggar! Cursing first day-first mistake. What do you think? Order some more and re-do?

BigGrin It all depends on whether it's a top deck or a lower one if its a lower one no problem as not a lot will be seen but I would give it a sand and see how it comes out Cool

Hope this helps rgd Martyn

Same as Martin I think its the lower forward deck that has another deck over it so most of it wont be seen. You could sand it back to see how it looks and then decide but im sure only the rear 2 inches or less will be visible and there are also the ships boats that cover the area too.

Could always turn it over and re-plank (assuming both sides are symmetrical lol) BigGrin

BigGrin Yep you could certainly plank the other side as they are symmetrical but you need to take the planking of as it will lift the deck up . Great thing with Deag is they give you a lot of planks

Confused Thanks Martyn. What's the best way to do that? Steam? Water?

Talked to Steve_O about his use of Tanganyka. Think that looks sweet Cool
Might order some from CMB and use that instead, this time without marking the sides!!!

Once i get these off that is Blushing

Good start to your build.

It looks like you have opted to use the newer smaller build board? Its a nice addition to the larger one they make and will serve you well over the years with some of the smaller models you might go fir.

Hope you have some great enjoyment from building this one.


Hi Tony thanks for your comments BigGrin

Yes i bought the smaller jig for another project, so it will come in handy until i can transfer her to the bigger one Cool

With regard to removing the planks, you could just make cut outs on the plank side in the places it rests on the bulkheads / ribs to keep the deck height the same. No real need to take them all offBigGrin

Don't try and sand the marker ink off, it will produce a black dust that taints all the plank. Best route is to ascertain how much of of the already laid planking will be visible and if very apparent, strip the planks and re-lay with new.

Just to add to the already excellent advice given. You can use hot water on a brush to help loosen the glue and then pry the planks off. Put a weight on it while let it dry so it doesn't warp.

You get plenty of planks so will have no issue using what you have to replant that part

Hi MrT
If it is the lower bow deck, could i not just plank over it? I took the plunge and ordered some tanganyka (1mm), so thought it might cover.

Hi Gray

I guess to things to consider.

1. What sits on the completed deck? If it carries canon that need to poke through port holes you could be causing an issue bu increasing the height of the already planked deck. In other words if anything is designed to sit on the deck it may end up sitting too high.

2. If you are gluing over previous planking that had the ink dissolved by the glue you could find you get bleed through onto your new planking.

I think someone suggested turning over the devk section and using the back but did mention removing sections of the plank were it may sit over a frame.

That would be my choice if i was doing this and it would be just a case of drawing a line between the deck rib cutouts so you know what to remove.

Kind regards

Tony

Hi Tony, thanks for your input.ThumpUp
In the end i have decided that, rather than spoil the ship for a ha'penny's worth of tar (see what i did there BigGrin), i would just bite the bullet (mixed metaphor?) and ring CS and ask them to send me a new stage1. Much to their credit, they have agreed to send me one out asap.

Result! Cool I know those guys (and gals) have taken a lot of stick over the years, but i have to say i've found them first class.

Sounds like the best option rather than trying to put a fix in place with the parts you already have.

Ok so here is my update. Received new pack 1 from CS ( bless em), redid the bow deck in tanganyka but didn't like my effort so stripped it all back and put to one side.
Continued with the main build. Had a little problem with part of the false keel warping, but after a bit of advice managed to sort it out (hopefully). Quite chuffed with how the build is coming on and am enjoying it immensely Love
Here are some photos of my build so far
The keel warpage is nearly gone now, ribs are in upto rib 6, lower deck glued pinned and fitting, and just need to re-do bow deck planking.
Seem to be running short of deck support beams though Confused

There you go Alan BigGrin Sorry, but tried to upload from Ipad and didn't know how to re-size Blushing She'll soon be big enough to transfer to the BIG Sister jig lol! The jig and lower decks seem to be pulling the small warp back in line.

Thanks for viewing and your comments. The encouragement is much appreciated Cool
