When you get a piece shaped perfectly and put it in place, it must feel like finding a difficult piece in a 5000 piece puzzle! So satisfying!

Finally finished the planking of the hull, luckily the top half is black so I can hide the bad bits under the paint, I'm really pleased with the bottom half though which is good since I will just be varnishing that and leaving the wood to show.

I must admit its turned out far better than I hoped it would.

Beautiful! I’m pretty sure that wooden ships had “bad” spots on them from time to time, right? In the pictures here the hull looks perfect and inspiring. In art we would call a bad spot “character”. Congratulations on the finished hull.

Hi all planking done and varnished, made up the stand, painted the black top part and added some more to the decking structure.

Hi all well I'm on to the gunwale covers (why they are called that I dont know, they cover nothing have nothing to do with guns and what wale's are I've no idea) anyway I've made a jig to get all the holes in the same place.



Drilled all 52 holes



Gunwales installed





Bit annoyed with the instructions (and myself for not checking) they tell you to drill 52 holes @ 1.5 mm but the brass wire they supply is only 1 mm

Well shes got a name on her now, I feel shes looking like a ship now and with the lines on the side the proportions are looking better (I did think without them she was looking slab sided)



Thanks Ted

Hi all finished the planking on the bow (those little bends in the 2x2mm sapeally were a real pain in the bum, that is the 12th set of those, they kept snapping when trying to bend them) I finally managed to get the bend by soaking them in boiling water then giving them 2 mins in the microwave.
