Hi Chris

I too decided that I would like a waterline/ sinking version of the 1/250 Amati model. I purchased a full set of unopened magazines with the intent of making a highly detailed full model for display, and my previously built model was to be adjusted. Trying to cut the hull of a finished model resulted in the planks flying off and was just not a good idea.

My suggestion would be to build the full centre keel in one piece on a flat surface, and use the support pieces higher up than what the magazine says to use them. That way the keel can be cut with a jigsaw or similar while it is still flat. Then dry fit the frames/ bulkheads and mark them so they can then be cut as well.

I would personally leave 3-4 mm extra and then, if you are planning to model it sitting in "water", you can just add extra water mixture to ensure it sits at the correct level.

Hope this is of some help and not too confusing

Regards, Ryan

PS: if you are going for a highly detailed model, I would recommend using the photo etched parts from the following site
www.minibrass.com
I used all the available plates, and they make a huge difference to the model, especially using the walls in these plates rather than the cardboard printed walls. And the 3D domes look incredible too!
