I was wondering if any of the "Forum-members" have built large-scale models...I'm getting started on a Spritsail skiff using 2"=1', as a scale. This will result in a model almost 5 feet long...I've cut all the materials I'll need from 2x4's and 1x6's (pine).
The boat is built on a "jig" which will allow accurate placement of frames and to establish the sideplank curves. Using an article from an old issue of WB I've constructed a "suitably sized" WORKING Steam box, which I've tested using some of my "lumber" - transom and side planks will be 3/16" thick. Question #1: Will I need to use glue and "small screws" or will glue and nails/brads be enough to fasten "my boat"?
Question #2: Any good sources for constructing "working" blocks? Would be interested in hearing from anyone out there doing "this sort of model building"...
