    • In the nicest possible way of course. Like all marine engineers, he's a complete perfectionist and he's going to spend AGES on that workshop and I just want to see that Victor III in all its wonderous glory - NOW.

            • She's right. That looks great! Now get back to work on that Victor.

              • Wow, ok break over, get that sub to the market!
                If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                • Bart, I hate you. I particularly hate your brand spanking new little-shop-of-horrors!

                  A clean and orderly work-place is a sure sign of a mental disorder!

                  • Workshop lost her virginity today.

                    Did some experiments on weldings/panel lines on the tower. Easiest way was to scribe them, but I wanted to try something different. The scale however is always the problem.

                    1st attempt: use brass wire and glued it in place, leaves a terrible round profile, impossible to get writ of it by filler or any other means
                    2nd attempt: use fishing wire and sand it to halve its diameter, good luck with that, gave up on that one.
                    3rd attempt: use 0.2mm fishing wire, scribe panel lines and ley in the wire with CA. That worked out, it was still a quest to find the right way to apply the CA without making a mess (a needle worked for me). When I will aply the paint the contour will further blend in.

                    Pictures below show the result, used the needle to give a comparison about the dimensions of the wire used.

                    Grtz,
                    Bart

                            Jeez.....indeed I wonder who is responsible for initiating such a behavior......and don't look behind you there is nobody standing there.

                              • Applied first layer of filler......the result is what I aimed for......some sanding and pin hole filling and the sail is ready for tooling.
