How do you mark the hull for a Z cut

Tape is not straight at the ends to make a mark. Anyone care to share?

Sit it on its nose, make a holder for your pencil and simply spin the model around against the pencil. Should offer a perfectly level scribe around the circumference, provided you keep your hull steady during the spinning process.

I just use tape and a razor saw, but I'm rednecky that way, I guess...

Funny how the simple things are the hardest to figure out. By the way Bob, check your Facebook.

You're probably right.. I'm due for my bi-annual Facebook check-in.

Got through that part. The rest of the build will be a breeze.
