Questions and answers

General:

  - Is there any easy way to remove the pieces from the cutout boards I am having a devil of a time using an X-Acto knife to get the pieces removed?

-
Just wondering if you have a text only version to use in my shop as I
build next to Dumas's Plans
?

Where did you find this stuff?

- Do you have a copy of the locator drawings
?

-
I would like to know if ended up putting stabilizers on the hull? I found my model very tipsy in the water.
     

Planking The Hul:

- You mentioned that you cut a hole in frame 6 for the forward gun, but I don't see anything else about it?

-
Do you have any pictures of the Bow end of the hull before planking?

-
How do you plank the bow of the hull?

- Would it be easier to add balsa blocks at the bow and carve them to shape?

- Do I glue the planks at the tip to form the bow?

- How is that straight edge of the bow established?

-After I start placing the planks above and below the sheer knuckle, there is still a little area left above the knuckle but not enough for a whole plank, what do I do?

-
How far up do I place the planks? Until it is level with the deck or below level?

- I am a little confused on the bow area and how the planking fits in along the keel
?

-
What really confuses me is how far forward do I put the planks to form the bow?

Weapon Mounts: inv_spacer.gif (807 bytes) - I tried to find the Bofors 40mm where did you get it?

- Where did you get the .50 cal machine guns?

- Where and how did you did you rig the servo and what kind of linkage did you use to turn the mounts?

- Do you have a more detail and brighter picture of the 40mm Bofors gun?

- I really need help with the assembly of the forward turret ie T3, T4

Extra Details: inv_spacer.gif (807 bytes) - I'm not quite sure how you rigged the servo to turn the radar?

- How fast does the RADAR rotate?

- How do you increase/decrease the speed of the RADAR unit?

-
Where did you find the oilite bearings that you used in the "A" struts?

-
Chocks, you said you casted your own after making a master.  How in the world do you cast your own parts?

Electrical: inv_spacer.gif (807 bytes) - Do you have a wiring plan on how you linked all this together so I don't blow every bulb?

-
What is a micro bulb that you used for the flood lights?

- I'm also curious how you rigged the bulbs on the vertical sections of the mast?

- From my research it looks like you have to put resistors in for the lights?
