    Re: Graupner Hertha Jeep
    "I had to break the bottom edge of the windscreen to get it loose from the hull." Hi Cash, next time something like that happens (and we've all done it!) try a Razor Saw! Nevertheless, good startπŸ‘ I like the Tamiya
    spray cans
    too, better than the Revell ones. Great for the large stuff like hulls and saves firing up (and subsequently cleaning😝) the airbrush. I reserve that for the fiddly bits where I need a finer spray. Cheers, Doug 😎

    New supplies required!
    Had to do the β€˜glue run’ today. Was in Southampton so went to the Poundland there to buy my tried and trusted two part epoxy and super glue. The
    spray cans
    are also great to have and a new product which I hadn’t seen before were the pack of four tweezers. All for a Β£5 note!

    Planking the hull.
    After shaping the frames to the hull profile and glueing shaped lime wood block to the bow and the stern, planking started at deck level. I happen to have a length of lime plank. So using a bandsaw cut lengths approx 2mmx10mmx a bit longer than the boat. I planked each side two planks at a time, glueing and pinning to each frame. Where required I soaked the ends of the planks to assist in the bending. Planks were shaped as required. Ones close to the keel needed a lot of trial and error. This all took a bit of time (4 planks a night). Once the planking was complete, the hull was sanded to smooth out the plank transitions and any bumps. The hull was then coated with car body filled, sanded, etc until happy with finish. A couple of coats of grey primer was applied using
    spray cans
