Hi Bob

 

That's a very fine Granado in the making. The kit itself is excellent and your work improves it further.

Do you plan to make openings for the quarter lights? (I did but am not sure if it's noticeable at all.)

Thanks so much Albert and Peter and the "likes". It's not my intention to make openings for the windows Peter. I'm going to use Micro Kristal Klear for the glazing, which is translucent and against a black background will give apparent depth.

The port side upper planking is now completed and treenailed. It was done exactly as previously described for the starboard side.

 

Next up will be the second layer of the wales and the counter planking.

Hi Bob. I had a moment from the move and was able too catch up on your build.

You sure have been making a lot of progress and doing a great job too.

Well done.

Bob, well behind you, as I still have hours left on CHEERFUL.  But I wanted to thank you for the great series you ran on her build.  As always, it helped me tremendously, and steered me away from many mistakes.  About to start the rigging, 

 

I don't know about GRANADO, but will do some research, and perhaps she'll be my next up North build.

 

Thanks again,

 

Terry

After some time up north with family, it was back to work on Granado. I've done a few things: I added the stern post, cut from holly sheet; I planked the counter; and lastly, I planked the second layer of the wales. The counter and wales were done with boxwood strip. In doing the counter, I omitted using the kit base piece, as it seemed more trouble than useful, and used thicker planking material.

 

After the planking was done, I painted both the wales and counter black. While I carefully taped the top of the wales prior to painting (using Tamiya tape) I left the bottom untaped, since any paint will be covered by the lower holly planking to come. This accounts for the sloppy appearance and excess width of the wales in the attached photos.

 

I'm still deciding today whether to next do the lower planking or do some interior work.

 

Bob
