Now that I have retired, move to Vancouver Island, built a new hobby room, I have decided to start finishing some of my models which seem to get put aside and this plank on bulkhead hull famous Canadian Schooner will be the first to get finished due to now being so close to the sea. I started this model back in 2006 (did say in my Churchill WIP that I started in 2010 but then I looked in the first picture properties and it says 2006 and was working on it until 2009 and then stopped) so it has been waiting a long time for me to get back to it. To start I glued the three piece center keel together and then added the sternpost which needed to be tapered as per plans, after that was complete I laid out the rabbet, then marked out and cut the bevel on each bulkhead and set up in a jig to hold all straight and square. At this time I decided to machine/drilled two blocks of wood (purple hard wood) to fit into space where the mainmast/foremast were going to go so that mast would be perpendicular from side to side Once that was done took everything apart and cut the rabbet into each side of center keel and formed all bulwark stanchions, then glued each bulkheads to center keel, to keep everything nice a straight I added permanent strut between bulkheads. Next up was to shape the stern blocks out of solid wood and glue into place, add transom framing and horn timbers. Once all the items above where nice and glued I had to feather each bulkhead to the bearding line every bulkhead had to have a smooth flow into the rabbet Hope you all will enjoy Regards Richard
