Work-in-Progress: HMVS Nepean



I've cut the hull ftom two laminations of 5mm balsa which then got stuck together with PVA/White glue and allowed to dry, carefully weighted.

The "step" between the two laminations was then filled with a commercial wood-filler and smoothed off with a wet finger (useful tool, that!) before leaving to dry. It still needs another 24 hours drying time to really harden up, then I'll sand it smooth with fine sand-paper and fiz up any irregulatities that I find.

Feel free to drop me a line.

Perhaps we could share some info.

Perhaps you'd like to consider joining the austcolwar Yahoo Group and get in touch with some felow enthusiasts, as well?
