the wife found the mags, so i've started building.

not much to show yet, but i've put up a couple of pics.


tomick,

the planking wood seems much harder than that used for the actual victory magazine, is it a different wood?

i am not complaining, i just wondered if it was different.

the wood has a nice rounded edge to it which is going to give a nice effect when finished. initially i was going to paint this, but the planks also have such a variety of colour i think it will look good with just a light varnish, however it would be great to see some finished pictures (rather than the cheap horrible plasticky ones in the flyer) so that we could decide wether to paint or stain.




here are the very boring pics.

Hi Bob,

I think your wood has been cut wrongly it should not have round shoulders I do not think, you may have a bad batch of planking(please see my post in my X section diary build)I am using new wood, because mine was the sameBigGrin regards MikeCool

Hi Bob,

The planking does feel different and a better surface quality to that of the Victory

[quote=saintsman123]the wife found the mags, so i've started building.

If my wife found the mags she wouldn't be building.
And I wouldn't be building.
But I may be building a large solicitors billCrying

no pics as i've had a few camera problems.

i've got it planked up to issue 128, so that's planking inside and out, i'm currently working on the riders, parts 13 and 14 abcd etc.

on completing the hold planking, issue 128 steps 1-4, you have to cut out some slots on a 1mm x 6mm plank, this plank is similar to some of the victory planks in so much as it is two .5mm planks glud together. this actually makes cutting the slots easier, as it reduces the chance of splitting the plank.

step 3 suggests making a mirror image, but i found that if you use both the jigs and mark your slots using the numbers facing you then cut the slots, but then use the opposite plank to fit to the hold you end up gluing on the pencil side, so no pencil marks show.

that sounds a bit complicated especially with no pictures, but if you have the magazine then i'm sure you will understand.......i hope Confused Confused

hopefully i'll be able to hijack one of my kids phones/camera soon.
Come on you Jimmies

Hi Bob, did you use the 2mm planking at the start, which produces a 0.5mm step between the previous 1.5mm planking and that laid at step 1 which isn't shown, nor is the 0.5mm step shown against the rider later on.

i used 2mm, at the start, then 1.5mm.

the 1mmx6mm plank on top of the 1.5mm gives another .5mm step at the top end.

i trimmed the risers so they would fit over the three 2mm planks either side and trimmed the top of the risers to fit over the top .5mm step. so everything lies flush.


this must be really confusing to everyone elseBigGrin

I agree, the steps do not say to trim the riders to accomodate the 0.5mm step created by the 2mm planks added in the first step, yet this needs to be done and good that you pointed it out for those following. Cool

I think the cross-section is going to turn out a very nice display item, which can be displayed in its base or flat aaginst a wall which is an idea MWG came up with.

still no pics, just an update.

not a lot has been done on the model due to a bit of an accident with a craft knife. some super glue got on the handle so when i placed it down on the table it stuck blade side up. as i've mentioned bfore i have a problem with my hands, one of the problems with my right hand is lack of feeling, so i had no idea that i had actually been leaning on the knife blade until my dog came over and started licking the blood. so a quick trip to the docs and a couple of stitches later means i've can't do anything for a week or so. maybe by then i can get some pics, since i've got my camera back.

Sorry Bob, I missed your post on this. Hope your hand is on the mend and can get back to it soon, it must be quite frustrating.

thanks tom

it has been a bit frustrating, but i should be making a start again quite soon.

from what i have done so far, and looking at the mags and your diary, it is a great model to do weekly. unlike the bigger partworks where there can be lots of stop/start modelling, this build has something do do every week and you notice a difference at every stage. hope that made sense.

finally some more pics.

and thats all it is really just a couple of pictures to let you all see how far i've got.

i still have to sand all the outer edges, i started, then every stage seems to add more, so i will wait till i'm a bit further on before i tidy it all up

Hi Bob,

It seems I missed this as well, how awful for you. I hope your hand is better, or getting better soon anyway. Cool

Kind Regards
