Recommended Posts

hello all,

 

dodgem37: lenght will be +- 1m77

thierry laurent: thanks for the info BTR-50 and T-55 Tirans wow, but I will keep it in WW2 time frame.

 

Started on the 25 men balsa life rafts.

styreen is evergreen n° 199 ; 6,3 x 6,3 mm

2019-09-16%2018.25.03.jpg

2019-09-16%2018.30.33.jpg

the build is straight forward, not difficult to do, just styreen and etch, cutting and sanding

the making of the wooden floor, I make it once, cast then 2 times. Tape 11 strips of 2mm width

2019-09-17%2011.26.49.jpg

remove second, forth, sixth  etc strip and tape it

2019-09-17%2011.34.11.jpg

glue a strip over these strips, make sure everything is square

2019-09-17%2011.40.00.jpg

repeat this 14 times

2019-09-17%2011.43.42.jpg

2019-09-17%2011.57.43.jpg

just cut out and sand

2019-09-17%2012.44.58.jpg

just to fill in some voids, and sand it

2019-09-17%2013.20.16.jpg

it will look like this, a lot of detailing to do, all the etch which is visible through the squares must be removed

enjoy,
