I also find attaching bottom of hull to your choice of display board way cool.
I have always built WL using a sheet of glass, then attach to base. Also am interested
in cutting the tabs off. I have started to do this, but never followed thru and built using
them. The idea about gluing to deck/bottom edge and not too side formers very intriguing.
And DRG's build is just over the top too. So watching you both I might be able to pull a build of
the Emden Troptical off. Will admit I have cheated a tad. I ordered the main guns from Shapways
3D printed.

Hey Rick!

Pay way more attention to what DRG is doing, not me! I’m riding his coat tails as well since I can’t remember how many times I’ve referenced his photos. I’m simply trying out some of my own techniques, and so far it’s mostly working out.

The wood base idea works ONLY if you’re absolutely sure there won’t be any warping. I finished my piece of Bacote a couple of weeks before, and it’s stayed true. I think I’ll switch Mack to a thicker piece of Patagonian Rosewood for the next build. It’s heavy as hell but resists warping.

I hear ya....by the way, nothing to post!
I hope to see a up date soon from your build as well. I am intrigued by your cutting the tabs off. Question, did you double the frame bottom/upper deck. I still find myself building on a piece of 1/4" glass. Any hoo, up date dude. 8)

Yep, update coming soon. I was in Rome, Italy last week and when I got home had to finish a 1/700 build that was nearly complete as it is. I’ve done some work on Emden today, but I haven’t had a chance to photograph it yet.

In the meantime, SMS Scharfschütze;
