    Great construction review Christoph. Everybody will benefit from this.
    But you are cranking up those models with such speed that I'm getting dizzy :p

    Hi Scorpio,

    Thanks for sharing this information with us. Your explanations remind me of those from the person who introduced me to paper models when I was like 10 years old. Shame I could not learn more from him, but this will make up for it.

    Thanks again,

    Erick

    Christoph,

    You're taking paper shipbuilding to a new level for me. I appreciate the lesson.

    Cheers,

    Hi, Christoph! :D

    I have to join in the choir of thanks for giving us a superb "how to do it" photo essay on building this kit...one of the many areas I have little experience in building with card is the full hull, particularly the formers. After seeing your excellent write up and superb illustrative photos I feel more confident to tackle a kit like this. I don't know many forums where folk are so generous and willing to share their experience like this one, and your posts are a prime example of what makes this forum great.
    Thanks!! :D

    Cheers!

    Jim

    Hello friends,

    Now I have stuck on all ribs 6mm breadths paper-strips and have painted with red watercolour.
    Why do I do something similar?
    I would like to explain something into this position.
    That torso becomes just like in the instruction stands, without spatulas, without painting of Skin parts.,( for paper-purists),
    Then, I show the torso like I further to get planking about possible seamless underwater-crooked processes

    Now all parts of underwater-ship-planking are prepared to the sticks on Frame scaffolding

    Cheers!

    Hello friends,

    So preparatory Frame scaffolding will now stick I with the Skin part. Now, I would like to clarify another very important matter: That possesses no matter which form torso, first I look for a Skin part the simplest figure has, quadrangle. This part is stuck as last. On reason his/its more simply moulds one can always cut them off if the too wide becomes or produces again if becomes the too narrow. My principle is always underwater-planking of stern to this simplest part and from tip to this part. And at the finishes only the simplest remains to glue on part in the figure.

    Thus sees pasted with this wise underwater ship skin.
    Now one can do of course all missing still small parts like oar, screws stick around the work to complete.
    I have not stuck them yet because as well as I have already written the skin will farther work on.

    Here the rear

    Beautiful, Christoph, just beautiful! :D

    And I see how all that fairing of the formers helps to make for a very smooth transition between each plate. Superb job!

    Cheers!

    Fantastic Christoph,

    I have always had trouble getting the hull correct. Now I see that my problem has been with correctly shaping the formers. I look forward to your next up-date.

    Thanks,

    Hello friends,
    As I have already written I, that of everything will process further now to receive around seamless surface

    I sharpen the total underwater-planking with „400 “Sandpaper.
    One cannot press too strongly not to damage planking about that. Everyone once with hand controls whether the dragged surface is sufficiently smooth.

    Now thus the underwater ship sees. All crossing place of skin parts are smooth
