Cheers paul.
I feel it has been coming on well enough. Its a very daunting model to take on for your first build but I am giving it a lash anyway. I am really worried they are going to tell me to rip it apart that I have made a hash of it in reference to the gap but I live in hope.

Hi Neon and welcome aboard... Great start you have made and I don't see any reason for you to rip anything apart, think it is coming along very nicely.... Wouldn't worry too much about the gap as it won't be seen when everything is planked over... Only thing I can see you need to ensure is that the dummy gun supports are securely fixed so there is no chance of them coming away when you drill the holes for the dummy guns...Cool Cool .. Look forward to following your progress...

Regards

Alan

hi alan
Just looking at that alan. They seem fairly well stuck but I am worried now as I dident realise you have to cut into them.
Do you have to cut into the lower ones aswell. I have already planked that part so cant check.Crying

Hi Bren, no you don't have to cut into them but you will have to drill a small hole in them (I think it's 2mm) in order to fit the dummy guns..... Drill very easily without too much pressure and you should be fine... I intend to start with a 1mm drill then move up to 2mm, this way pressure being applied would be minimal.... Cool Cool

Regards

Alan

Claret

Your build is simply stunning. I can only hope mine ends up half as good. I love your tree nailing. I hope when I get to that stage to give it a go the way you did it.

Hi Bren, just take your time with it, remember this hobby is never about how quickly a build can be constructed but more about how well it can be done.... Me, I take it in small bites and it works for me even if some of it can be a little tedious at times.... Good luck with her... Cool Cool

Lads I think I have made a major mistake here. Any help would be appeciated . I was typicaly delighted to have almost finished the planking on one side of the hull when you can imagine my dismay when I discovered that I had not got enough room to lay the last 50mm plank which should run up level with the gallery frame.
IS there anyway out of this before I send this boat sailing down the river. Any help would be greatly apreciated.
