|can you help i am building the Lady nelson|
by victory models (2nd attemped.)
I suffer with dyslexia, and from time to time it jumps ups and reminds me,
As it has done with the planking, I just can get to grips with it, ive got books on it.
I need to be shown ( so as they say the penny will drop) I am willing to pay someone
For a day/half day lesson. ( or if you need any drawings done as I am a teacher of AutoCAD)
During the week Sunday night to Thursday I live in London,
And weekends I go home to Hampshire.

How sad!........David never got a reply to his planking question posted last July!
I could have mentioned the Great Eastern album........which shows my method of planking....................perhaps he`s still waiting out there?

Yes, it is a shame. Could be any of a number of things. We would not have had many members back then, possibly no one living near to him, no one with the experience, no one needing the money or drawings !, no one willing to give up their time. Even so someone could have pointed David to a club in his area.

Ref to David Martin
I think the best chance that you have of being shown how to do the planking is to go onto Youtube and see if they have a clip of the process. I have built this model myself and although I did not need to be shown how to plank when it came to the rigging there is a clip on how to tie deadeyes and a lot more. Another source of info is this site http://www.shipmodeling.net/cmps_index.html they have a lot of people posting on tall ships. Anyway the best of luck with your model. Regards

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.
In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.
The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!
I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
