#9496, "Questions for Jaborg"


          

Dear Jason King/Jaborg

I have contacted you via YouTube comments and said I would
Like to ask some questions about making a model. I have a few questions regarding the construction up to the plating stage. I have questions regarding the plating but that's for another time, first off, I am planning on making a 1:200 scale model. I know the process of how to do it but I have some questions.

1. While constructing a 1:200 scale model what wood thickness would you reccomend for the ribs?

2. What plans do you use for your ribs? Can I find them online?

3. What filler do you use after bridging the gaps between the ribs with wood?

4. What dimensions do you use for the wood strips used in bridging the gap? Are they bass wood or balsa?

Thank you!

-Brady G

Hi Bradly,

To answer your questions;

1. If i was constructing a model to 1:200 scale i would use 3mm thick MDF board throughout. That would be easy to cut using a Stanley knife and when'boxing in' between the ribs this would increase the strength of the hull.

2. I have always used Robert Hahns' plans. I think you can still buy them online but i dont think you can download them.

3. I use quick drying ready mixed Polyfilla. Easy to sand and provides a smooth surface.

4. As mentioned i use 3mm MDF for bridging the gaps. I even used 3mm between the frames for my current 1:72, however i used 9mm MDF for the frames and keel plate. 9mm would be to thick for your scale.

I hope that helps, Good Luck.

Regards
Jason
