Hello again...

 

I wish all the best in the new year to all of you dear friends...

... I would continue with the log ...
So, the next step is putting the flooring between the keelson and the bilge keelson, to each side of the model ... It is good to do this before ending the interior planking because the manipulating is easier in this way... So it looks like this :

... then the planking of the bulkheads .. When I say bulkheads here I think of the real bulkheads that are the constructive parts of the Trabaccolo... Those are the ''walls'' that separate the storage area from the cabins, and that separate the cabins from the post at the stern and bow ...
   The bulkheads need to be planked vertically, with the strips 0,5x5mm ...

   The mast steps and the bitt steps need to be glued at their places ...

   Now, when the interior is finished, it is time to prepare the construction for the planking ... Beveling needs to be done in detail ... Then the stern and bow blocks are to be done and installed onto their places... There are the freeboard supports needs to be installed too . Those are some kind of the first knight heads that are to be glued to the posts. They are made of 3mmx3mm strips ... Here are the photographs :

   So, this photograph shows the construction prepared well for the planking... those blocks are quite well done for the modelers who have the experience in the single planking method ... The single planking method is the one MarisStella ship modelling school recommends to everyone because it is the way of planking very close to the planking in reality and it saves the time a lot ... Once You get to it, You will be doing it for all times ...
... This construction could have been filled with the blocks between all the bulkheads... that would be recommended to the beginners... The surface, prepared in that way, is actually like the first planking and the planks over it is actually like the second planking ... It is good for acquisition of experience in the single planking method ...

So, avoiding of making the blocks saves the time, but in that case bit more of experience is needed ...

   Strong, firmly, straight , precise ... these are the words to describe this construction in this stage ... Was it fragile in the beginning ? ... The first phase of the pleasent job has just been done .... The second phase is the hull planking... All planking of this hull begins with two 4mm wide strips. The first planking strip is glued so that its upper edge follows the upper edge of the main deck rail that will be attached to the deck later. Below this one follows the same one. This is the base for the top of the wale that will be attached later... instead of this combination the 3mm and 5mm wide strips could be used. The point is that this part of the wale should be 8mm wide all along its lenght ...

   Here is the first strip :
