    Printing guns or trying to find the right one for the job is definitely a head scratcher

    Good advice given .... I personally use a length of baking paper of the roll ,bit of tape to hold each end and then run finger around top edge of hull giving shape then make a template using cardboard

    I was a great believer in using home grown model shops until I retired then every penny counts. Nearly everything electrical you need for your model was or is made in China so Aliexpress became my preferred seller. I'm guilty your honour here's why...

    Wolle I wish it was a kit sometimes, biggest set of plans I could get were 1.24 scale but the boat is 1.20 scale so measuring twice cutting once and drinking loads of coffee in-between πŸ˜†

    Sorry peeps I've been a bit quiet lately, I was trying to work on my seabex one but as I'm having real trouble sourcing bits that are missing from the kit I've decided to put it to one side till next year. So I've started building the 48" steam drifter, just completed building the basic superstructure and am now spending most of today cutting 200+ strips to clad the sides, gonna be a long day lol
