re visited the model (HMS Victory) after spending some years abroad working, ive decided to re do one side of the hull due to warping etc from poor storage, I'm seriously short of planking strips now, do I have to re order the magazines containing the planks (expensive route), or is there some where i can purchase the planks and pins,
I would imagine there are quite a few abandoned projects out there maybe that would help out

thank you in advance BigGrin

You are correct.

Stage 21 in the instructions confirms that.

Yes, that's it.

Have a look to see if there is any other wood you might need while you are ordering. For example, I found I needed 2 pieces for the poop deck bulwark caps, I can't remember why, probably a mistake I made with cutting. But I ordered a long length from here to cover it.

You might also want to tell them that it's OK to break the metre lengths up for easier packaging.

Hi,
I have some leftover 5x2mm strips and lots of pins.
If you wish I can send it to you.

Happy building!

Hi,

I have approx 50-60 strips.
Drop me a PM with your address and I'll post it as soon as I can.
Happy building!
