Hi.

Nice build. 

If it helps with the plank bending .... try a shot of whiskey in the glass before use.

Will follow along with your build. And watch the progress as she grows.

 

Regards Antony.

Yes Anthony :) my another friend has given that advice too and i am planning to apply this in my next bending process :)

Beautiful model.  Also a great example of why one can never have too many clamps!

Thank you for visiting my log Ragova. The clapms help me a lot in planking because i only use white glue which needs time to dry.

Planking goes on. The planking takes time because i am using only white glue and i have to taper both tips of each plank and have to soak them to bend. The magohany is a brittle wood and we need to be carefuly while bending it.

mtbediz,

 

Very nice planking work. Good start. I have a question about those spring clamps. Very interesting - I have not seen this useful design before. Is this something you added with wire? If not what are there called? I may want to get a few.

 

Regards,

Oh,  I think I know how you did this.  --- You used the arm from another clip inserting it inside the black part??? Very clever "out of the box" thinking.:imNotWorthy:

I haven't done anything on my build for long time. I got retired and returned back to my homecity. I prepared my balcony as a shipyard :) to continue my builds. I am sharing what i did on my San Francisco II in last month without comment and i will continue to share developments. I just want to state that altough kit plan does not contain second layer of planking on the hull i did second layer (0,5 mm of mahogany) beause i didn't like first layer.

I had to change the shape of grate in the head because i couldn't make the original shape given in the kit plan. By the way i continued producing detail parts.
