Guessing that the puppy is well and truly in the "Dog House", but that`s puppies for you. If it fits in their mouth it gets chewed.Blink Blink

Anyway, from your info I think you need issues 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7 plus maybe issue 1.

There is some good news though. BigGrin

I have all the wooden parts for issues 1, 2 and 3 that you can have for the cost of postage.

You may get 4, 5 and 7 on ebay.

Send me a PM with your address and I`ll get them off to you.

Well im down to the ribs now and removed the damaged planks after another 2hrs...

With the parts from delboy it looks possible to glue and clamp new pieces of ribs next to the old ones some pieces i will have to make and shape and then use some form of 2pac filler.......

Anybody any ideas of a decent 2pac filler that is solid once dried and easy to sand and take a pin to hold a plank whilst the glue dries......

Hi Ant, BigGrin

Good to see you are on the route to recovery of your Vic.Cool

I don`t know if the information in the link below may help, but take a look as you may be able to adapt the method I used to repair a rouge part.

https://forum.model-spac...aspx?g=posts&t=6764

If I can be of further assistance on the repair I used, let me know and we`ll see what we can do. The repair I used allowed the rib to take planking pins without a problem.

Cheers for the link i will have a look later when the missus hits catch up tv for an hr.....

Im 7 layers of planking up from the lower gun ports,so what i have done is to snip the damaged planking down the sides of the ribs leaving a small piece still attached to the rib.
I then use my scalpel blade to run down the join edge of the two planks and slowly pick away the glue...
So basically starboard and the port side have staggered edges.
The curved bow im using the pieces you sent Del and carefully under cut a mm so i can sand...
That is working for me so far.
The bow pieces i have realsed is i make a card template i can work from them..
Its become easier than expected tbh..
The bow is the hardest but im in no rush....
I also have two bent planks ive made for the bow to help aswell....

I have most of sunday to myself so im hoping to have the bow front damaged pieces marked and cut if not just marked ready....

Well quite a productive day today without any hinderence from the missus or the puppy (Logan).
I have managed 2hrs here and 2hrs there today..
I bought some of the ronseal 2pac wood filler and i intend to use it to fill chewed edges..

Anyway ive cut a few of the spare pieces from Del and glued and clamped them next to the existing keel..
Also ive cut n shaped a few pieces for the damaged bow sections and another few hours and they will be glued and clamped......

So far so good.......

Hi Ant

I`m assuming from what you say that the bow former can`t be glued and clamped till set, so firstly what adhesive have you used on the bow former originally?

Ive been using gorilla wood glue.....

Ive an idea though...

The front bow former you sent if i cut it level across the top of the bow formers and then glue and clamp that to the existing front bow former that should make it solid.
Then the bow formers if i remove the thickness of the front bow former from them then that would not in any way change the bow length.....

I then Just require bow formers 10, 11, 11a.......

Hope that makes sense.........

If my memory serves me well gorilla wood glue does not release easily, so a repair would be the quickest method.

That said the method you have noted above could bring some issues later on in the build. Could you post a pic of the damage you are trying to repair to see if there are any alternative solutions.

In the mean time I would get some of the aliphatic wood glue shown in the link below. Its a very good adhesive, but if required can be released with very hot water applied just to the joint.

I`d hold off for know until you can post a pic or two as you don`t want to get maybe months down the line to find out there`s another problem to solve.
