Hood Build - Week 29/34
Part 1 -
Second planking starts, I will not be following the magazine instructions/order, as I prefer to plank my way..be it correct or not, its my preferred approach. Nothing much to talk about here apart from trying to get as good as possible 2nd planking as possible, trying to correct any areas you think may show with either dips or bumps, sand the first planking well will set you up perfectly for the second and last layer on our ship. Once again a little time taken over the 'thinner' planks supplied by bevelling them to butt up against each other were needed, this will mean you sanding will be minimal.
Well that is it for now, I'll be working more on the second planking over the weekend and during the week, I'll post up some progress shots in a new 'Part 2' post.
Aliphatic Rapid Glue
Outperforms traditional white glues with it's super fast grab time and superior sanding qualities. It will bond most porous materials such as balsa, plywood, spruce, obechi etc. and it is water and shock resistant. Useful for joining aircraft cowling blocks, wing skins, fuselage or hull planking. In fact, it is useful for any joints where the glue line needs to be carved or sanded afterwards. The glue joint will not show - unlike normal sanded PVA glue joints.
