  1. I bought some micro chucks for my Dremel. Got them from Amazon a few years back. An absolute necessity. HTH.
  2. Before you go using any putty, take a few strips of the planking material and sand them away into piles of sawdust. Next, mix that sawdust with some white glue and use that as a putty. It will be much less noticeable because it is of the same wood. HTH
  3. You have done very nice work. Thanks for sharing. Did you build the case as well?
  4. Looked on ebay.ca and they have it. Looks like it is being shipped from Australia. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/ModelKasten-Metal-Cable-Rigging-for-1-700-Battleship-Extra-Fine-0-047mm-x-5m/401898326961?hash=item5d9301cbb1:g:BmIAAOSwaFddimnE Hope I'm not breaking any rules here.
  5. In North America, the UV glue is sold under the brand name Bondic. I don't know what the trade name would be in the UK. It is probably all made in China. I see that amazon.ca is showing several makes of UV sensitive glue. HTH
  6. In US and Canada, you could use Aleene's Tacky Glue. I like their fast grab but I dilute it a bit. The variety pack allows you to play around to find what you like best. I don't know if there is a Michaels chain in the UK.
  7. I have only built one Combrig kit (HMS Glascow). They are little works of art. However, they are resin along with photoetch. Not one to attempt on your first ship model unless you have some experience with other resin kits (a/c, etc).
  8. Other tips for casting the rubber. Use Leggo to create pour boxes etc. Extremely flexible for sizes. Also spray in mold release agent before you pour the rubber. If you don't have any of that, use WD-40
  9. That is basically what I do as well along with using a drop of CA accelerator on the initial point.
  10. I look forward to any replies by people who know what they are doing. I also use Ushi but I don't get near the quality you have achieved. I also find that Ushi will start shriveling up if it is held close to CA fumes too long.
  11. Try https://uboat.net/. If anyone would know it would be them.
  12. You might try combinedfleet.com. They are a treasure trove of info.
  13. I agree 100% to the great look of pure wood. Unfortunately, what I like and what my skills can produce are two different things.
  14. That is why I like painted hulls. Paint covers up a host of wood filler and wood strip sins
