Anyone know who sells those small brass pins that you use to hold the planking in place while the glue sets?

A link would be helpful.

Regards,

Tom.

I found the push pins that you use on notice boards very handy for this

P & S Hobbies of Walmgate, York, sell the excellent Artesania Latina brass hull pins. Highly recommended!

Thanks guys! Re the notice-board pins, I'd have thought they were a little too thick. No?

Re planking pins go to Miskinmodels and get 10 for £9 excellent for clamping planks to each other while the glue dries also ambush the postman and get his strong elastic bands to put around the hull keeping the planks lined up. You'll likely use nails for the first skin, I usually just tap them in until the glue sets then pull them out the mag says nip them off then sand down but this isn't necessary and it's hard work sanding brass! You will receive a plank bender in issue 5 and these are all you need to shape the planks don't buy electric benders: unnecessary. I've built Titanic Victory (Del Prado) and am nearly finished Bismarck (3 years). I crewed victory with scale figures from OnTracks morris dancers! 15 sailors Nelson and a marine officer plus 5 marines. When doing the "ratlines" hold a white card against the mast so you can see the ropes clearly. SundanceBigGrin

Hi There,

Planking Pins !!! most good model supply shop will sell these, google search for best price, personally I think the model shop at the tip of the land is a bit expensive, eh, but thats just my opinion!

But take a look at this pro builder and how he planks! Steve Priske,
Lots to watch and learn!

Lol not drawing pins the map push pins with the diferent coloured plastic tops as the pin is very sharp and thin with a nice tapered point which pulls the joint tight together

Surely you get supplied with some Planking Pins ??? How else do they expect you to build the thing, After all they do show them being used on the DVD , That gave me the impression that we were getting some with the Kit .

I use dressmaking pins (the ones with the coloured tops). The hole left behind is minimal and sanding usually "vanishes" the hole.

Hi all,
I simply use push pins. I don't push the pins through the plank but adjeacent to it using the flat part on the head of the pin to hold the plank while it dries. In this way I don't end up with any holes in my planks and things seem to end up kind of neat and tidy.

Hope that helps

Alex
