#8747, "RE: Chris' 1/250 Amati" In response to In response to 0 Mon Feb-08-16 07:29 AMby Chris Krook
Here is the first picture of my 1/250 Amati build, the work so far has already proven to be quite a challenge. I wanted to do the kit as a waterline model, which meant cutting right through the keel piece and all the individual frames. And getting all the pieces glued in the right place perfectly flat on a base plate without warping was a real headache, but so far so good!
If you look closely at frames 3 through 9, you can see that I corrected them for the known error in the shape of these frames in the Amati kit, which results in an incorrect hull shape if not corrected.
Before I can do the hull planking I first have to install the lighting in the hull. I already "hollowed-out" all the frames to get optimal light distribution throughout the hull without the necessity for an LED in-between every two frames.
