pointed the the area of interest it looks like you started the angle before the
edge of the support gallery in fact the plank look like it comes to a point LOL

hey Tom

I think I almost have the angle cut that is, but I am still having issues with the plank trying to split at the turns and the twist should I go and buy a steamer
for the twist portion but how to resolve the splinting at the turns, if I can only figure a way to gradual bend the plank or planks in the L shape form like
you did for yours what are your thoughts thank you

As I mentioned upscreen, the easiest way to steam wood is with a common household clothes iron.

Hi Ronald as I said before I use the steam from a kettle to make the twist .I just use an ordinary electric kettle i find if boil the kettle to make the missus a cup of tea, theres usually enough steam comes out to make the twist and everyone's happy BigGrin . You could also try Marks method,I think you have to experiment and find a method that suits you.

Hi Alan
do you think Mark will allow me to ask you one question, The question is the
bend in Part 4 of stage 33 of the instructions it is not a full L shape, is
that the bend shape it is suppose to be at before cutting the angle and
chamfering it before twisting it to fit the stern, if so I thought it had to
be more of a L shape to snug the corner, because I can get the check mark
shape no problem, once I get that all I need to do is getting the twist right
let alone the angle cut. thank you
Ronald

Hello Ronald just got in from work and saw your post. Sorry go hear your still having trouble with this part of the build, I have never used a crimper so I can't offer anything on that one. As for the angle cut I made the bend
And twist first then just kept trimming bits off the end and trying it against the frame until I got a nice fit. As for soaking the wood in my humble opinion once it's soaked for a couple of hours it ain't gonna get any wetter. Here's a few more pics hope they help.



Ron, this is a pretty “on point” reply that addresses what you need to do. Failing this, reach out to your local hobby shop, and they will probably be able to refer you to someone who can help in person. You’ve pretty much received the best this board format has to offer.

Are there any members that are YouTube enabled, AND are ship modelers? I think Ronald is much like I am; I can read something a thousand times, and still not get it, and if I see something being done ONCE, I’m telling myself “well, Duhh? HOW could I have not seen that!?!??

(And, if you do, can, and are willing, PM me. I’ve got an idea!)

Ron I think that's a bit rude when people are trying to help and Mark is going the extra mile to get your problem solved.

Ronald, there have been 104 (ONE HUNDRED FOUR!!!!!) posts made on this issue, trying to help YOU! Yet, you are still unable to conceptualize the solution. It is clearly obvious that this format IS NOT helping you.

This thread is now locked. I will not allow any further posts on this subject.
