    Default #10 1/72nd Scale Permit Build Thread

    Matt, will this qualify as an entry for the build contest?

    Here is what came in the mail the other day.



    I wanted something a little larger than 1/144, and this is certainly larger .



    After seeing the 1/72 scale I dont think anything smaller will do, unless its a 1/96 Ohio or something with tons of room for stuff, not to mention my fat fingers.

    Start Date November, 23 2008.

    Sure John moving to 72 Parrallel is fine with me. Can it be moved or should I start another in that section?

    I will remove the rule to keep the threads in 'building thread' forum. John is right, with this scale it could be in either forum. My mission is to get more build activity on this site. As long as it is on this site, I really don't care what forum it is in.

    I will see if I can move it for you. I am not very adept at this admin stuff, yet.

    OK guys I need some advice before I proceed.

    I am just now getting started on this build and need to do the Z-cut, do any of you have any tips/tricks on making a good clean Z-Cut? I have a brand new blade but after practicing on some scrap it seems to be very messy, it seems to flake and the edges and its not so easy to keep it straight.

    I am using a hand razor saw, not a power tool. I wouldnt dream of trying this with a dremel, I have learned to stay away from power tools for delecate stuff, it makes for more work later

    Thanks,
    Stuart

    Building Steve's GW I move the Z cut location a little farther back.
    Two reasons.
    1. I couldn't get my fingers in the tail cone to make any of the connections.
    2. Once I decided to make the second cut I determined where the water line would be and made the cut so the rear topside cut would be below the water line and help hide it when in the water. This makes for a clean topside in the water.

    To make the cut I too used a razor saw. First I marked the cut location. I then built up 6 layers of masking tape on one side of the cut line. I then did the same on the other side of the cut line. leaving a very vary small gap. The tape was high enough to allow the saw to glide next to the tape without cutting in to the tape. This made my cut very straight and on the line I had marked on the hull. Saw did not wander about.

    Did the same on the front bottom cut earlier in the build.

    Thinking about checking out the Raboech ones for mine, or seeing if Alan can make a brass prop (hey what can I say I prefer brass)

    Worthwhile having a word with prop shop. They're the only company that I know of, who make one piece lost wax cast props, and they have a very extensive range.
