very good launch matey!! am i correct in thinking you have split your planks in half along the length? it looks much smarter that way and i feel the fit will be better it was one of my key learnings!

excellent job keep it up



Hi Jase, No I spent a bit at Cornwall models and bought some 2mm annagre! planking among other things! thought it would be easier then spliiting the supplied planks!
Happy Building, Russ

JUNE 2011 UPDATE !!!!!!

Hi Folks, well its been a while since I updated this so here we go!

After a winter of planking the lower half, which seem to go on forever I came to the conclusion that my portholes were wrong, I had to something about that.

So holes made bigger and then relined, Looks a bit messy at first but after I have the second planking on all looks well, still going to paint and of course copper plate it!!!! but eh, its begining to look good to me!

hers a few photos so far.

The Gratings Issue 43??

Hi
That's really nice build mate. I like your version of gratings.
Are you painting your hull or copper plating?
