Hi Zoltan, the Sapelle strips that came with the Endeavour kit were quite porous and the CA glue being rather thin created quite a problem. The glue set very quickly and my fingers stuck to the strips then while trying to get my fingers off the strips, the strips broke. I won't go on, it's a comedy of errors.
If I had a denser strip of wood I don't think I would have had that problem. The strips even curved down the length when PVA glue was spread on them.

Regards
Eric

Brian: Their site shows some incredible ship models including the HMS Victory in 1:72 scale that must make an marvelous model since it is a heavy kit. Their Sovereign also looks marvelous.

Hi Gary,
hope Denis doesn't mind me stepping all over his build log, but yes there are some good value for money kits on that web page.

I have purchased some cherry planking and its the best value for money timber I have found anywhere.
