Just a little update.  I trimmed the hull planks.  Next I'll use some wood filler and sand them nice and smooth before planking the second layer.  Unfortunately I'm going out of town for the holiday so I won't be getting any building done this weekend.















Thanks for looking!

I've just bought this kit, and it is also my first build.   Appreciate any pictures and descriptions you (MRWESQ) or Pete can give!

Welcome Jake,
Here is a picture of my progress on the Virginia so far, but I swear I'm going to finish this little lifeboat first.
Matthew - I promise I'll start my own build log and stop jumping in on yours.

Does anyone no while planking the hull do you connect the planks to piece eleven? Thanks.
