before continuing with the construction of the interior I thought it would be better to complete the planking of the hull of the starboard side: the side of the left will leave in carpentry.

I drew with a pencil the locations of the strakes

Hi, Giampieroricci. I just find your fantastic building log today. You are so skillful and seem to know everything of model ship building. I can get lots of tips with your log. Please look at my building log and give some advice. Thank you again.

Hi Giampieroricci,

 

I've take the time to look through your complete build log. It's a real interesting log and a nice representation of the "French shool of shipmodelling".

I'll follow your log next year with great interest

I've just found your log, Giampiero. That is terrific work, especially the tricky job of matching the run of strakes above and below the waterline. Very, very nice!

What a beautiful planking job Giampiero! 

 

What are you using to simulate the caulking between the planks?

 

Oh, and a happy birthday of course ! :cheers:

After removing all the nails with the card I started to make a first rough finish with 120 sandpaper to remove excess glue and smoothing the side.
There is still a lot of work, especially in the critical points of the curves more, also I have yet to finish the nailing in the last strakes, remained suspended:

While I carry on the long job of nailing the last strakes, I proceeded to make holes of hawses: their axis is parallel to the keel and have a slight downward inclination, to favor maneuvers hawsers:

I also started the construction of the spur;
To give more strength to the union between ebony and peer I thought to use a plug interlocking between the two species:

Thank you very much, Mark!

I'm desolate!  I read just now your question........ 

 

To simulate the caulking I used a thin piece of black cardboard 0.3mm

I finally finished the long process of nailing the last strakes, and having finely sanded the entire surface of the hull with sandpaper gradually more and more fine (220, 400, 600), here is how it looks:

I started the construction of the dolphins bow; For these details, very mangy and difficult to achieve, I chose boxwood.

They are made in two pieces joined to scull. After the first attempts, miserably failed  trying to figure out how and where to make that scull, I think I've reached a good compromise: I preferred to keep me abundant at the beginning and gradually refine until the right size;
