still another newbie ... and another Smit Nederland
« on: May 28, 2015, 12:07:52 am »

Hi everybody
A newbie ... not because of my age (53) ...
A frenchie ... from Paris's surburb
But with huge interest in modeling for many years in many disciplines (electric helico, gas and electric offroad cars, fine modeling with plastic kits, and for 2 or 3 years, wood models with in parallel  an Amati Arno XI and ... a BB Smit Nederland (recently began).
This last step is somewhere natural because I'm a woodworker  for 10 years now.
So you know about everything  O0
Read you soon
Olivier

Thank you Captain Podge
I noticed this beautiful work on the "revamped" Smit Nederland. Could be a target ... for some years  :((

Thank you Martin
I am at the very beginning of the Smit Nederland ...
In fact, when I received the Billing Boats Smit Nederland, one plank of wood was missing (1315L).
Right now, BB didn't succeed to manage this issue... Fortunately, the parts of this sheet are quite simple (geometric). So I bought by myself a plank of 5mm "veneer" and reproduced the missing parts from the Building instruction leaflet.
At the end, the BB Building Instructions leaflet is quite "minimalistic" so I guess I will have questions to submit to this forum in order to build this Smit Nederland

No, I bought a 5mm multiply sheet and, from drawings in the building instruction leaflet, I cut missing parts. So everything is OK now (without help from BB ...)
