Building the Hood
« on: November 25, 2013, 07:58:51 PM »

As I am having considerable difficulty in interfacing the planked hull structure with the deck I thought it would be good to share with other members my first build which is HMS Embling a Model Boats plan. This was really straight forward as there were many pictures and words to help (unlike the plan of HMS Hood which is vague to say the least). The Embling has been lake tested and so far no issues other than a bit slow.
Attached a pic of Embling
