Hi Vince, did you do bottom hull copper plating imitation per Mamoli: green wood plates painted copper paint?

Hi Y. T.,

Yes,  I glued hundreds of those little green wood plates on the hull and then painted them with a copper paint. Before it dried I used a paint thinner wash to bring out the green color to give it a weathered look.  It came out nice.

Thanks for quick answer, Vince! I plan doing same.  I got pretty nice copper paint and tried it on a piece of wood with some Mamoli green plates per their instructions. Look:

Of course  I overdid with separation lines but in general I am sure It will look pretty nice. P.S. Look at imitation of green verdigris.

A few days ago I fixed some rigging blocks from this kit. Now I will use them when time comes:

Very nicely done! 

Thanks Wallace.

Here is a final placing of a steering wheel. I added rudder driving ropes. Next step covering all with a deck on the top. I believe it is called a quarter deck?

Those are very useful images (and a very well executed finish by the way). I will be referring to these when my time comes to finish off my stern.

Progress is slow. Mostly because I am not too happy with results. I felt separation between planks should be more noticeable. I did chambered plank edges. May be I should have applied a "dark caulking" technique with blackening the plank edges as we normally do on the deck planking. At the end you are the judge.

I think the profile of those planks is good sir but, as you so rightly noted we are our own worst critics. You have done a very good planking job and it was worth the effort you put into it. There is always room for improvement in anything we do but there is also a point when we should just sit back and say "yep, I am satisfied with that." It brings peace.

"Not so bad" is an understatement Y.T., I think it looks very professional. I like the way you have planked the cutwater. This is something I wanted to do and because yours turned out so well I will have a good "template" to follow.

Like Wallace Said, your build is very very neat, clean and done with dedication. I like the way you work a lot!
