Yay!!!  The HMS Victory returns.  Hope you can keep this one going...

I for one love all the planking videos.  There is so little on planking available, so the more you can show us the less we have to guess or learn by trial and error.

Thank you again for resurrecting this beauty.  Looking forward to #18.

Episode 17 was  published on 23 April (on You Tube, can't see it in the video section here though) but can't see anything later than that!

Me too mate. Even though I don't think I would be venturing into wooden ship-building anytime soon, they are just damn cool to see being built [cool]

I have the kit and stopped building as I wanted to watch this build series first.
I sure hope the series continues.

Bobby,

I greatly enjoyed your videos 1 thru 17 on building HMS Victory

I built the Mantua Sergal Victory in the 1970s followed by Mantua La Couronne

Although I haven’t built any models since
i have wanted the Sovereign of the seas since it came out

I greatly enjoyed your videos

I hope to see the continuation of the Victory series videos 18 thru completion

Bobby,

I have just watched 17 of your build video's, I'd like to suggest a simple method to cut the gun ports.

I am a floorlayer by trade and often cut 6mm and 9mm plyboard by knife.

The blade....concave for stanley type knives, the knife...Dolphin(nice ergodynamic shape so sits in hand comfortobly) you could use cheap stanley, but for £12 get a dolphin (Amazon or Ebay)

you could probobly free hand, but suggest you use the template/straight edge to start cut as you show for model aircraft panel line rescribes.

Main thing is angle of cut, you start 90 degress to surface to start the cut (like starting a panel line), but then cant or angle knife over by 30-45 degrees so making the underside of cut smaller (you can free hand this cut as your blade should follow the 90 degree cut you started with, though take care with your horizontal cuts as blade will want to follow the grain of your wood planks).

The reason for this is basic material movement, cutting at 90 degrees the wood needs to seperate ( to allow width of blade to move through the wood) on a sheet this won't happen, but by cutting at an angle the wood lifts as well as resisting separating, believe me this really helps.

As long as you always angle into the waste cut, you'll find it very easy

I often free hand cut complicated cuts around door architraves with no problem as long as I cant my blade

Hope this tip helps
