Hi all, sooo close

Shaping the planks to fit the ever narrowing spaces  (scharf joints I think their called ) is a very slow job (and each one is a different shape) but it is surprisingly satisfying when they finally fit.

That is why I like painted hulls. Paint covers up a host of wood filler and wood strip sins 🙂

 

 

Yeah but the cleaned and varnished wood just looks magical... Not that I've ever acheived that magic yet.   :confused:

I agree 100% to the great look of pure wood. Unfortunately, what I like and what my skills can produce are two different things.

 

Unfortunately, I have that problem with plastic too.             :rofl:

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.

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.

IMG-20191205-20860.jpg

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)

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.
