Hi, in your plank tank tube do you put cold or hot water?

Thanks shipmodelmaker, I use the plier type plank bender, you can bend the planks and glue them immediately although the hair dryer is a good idea, better still is a heat gun the type used for stripping paint.

I have tried the plier type bender but found if you put too much pressure,
one can cut the planks.
:sad:

I have two of these gadets, one came with the Endeavour part build and the other with the Victory part build. The latter is great for cutting wood (puts a slight bevel on the edge. The former almost cut through the wood and I filed the sharp edge down slightly so that it wouldn,t cut through, might be worth a try.
