  1. Thanks for your compliment! Well i'm going to use 1mm planks as the kit supplied, but I replaced it with pear wood. So I don't know how thinner wood behaves with Chuck's method. Does your bending jig got a piece of scrap wood in the middle, where you can slide the plank underneath that your are going to bend? And maybe just try it in multiply sessions.
  2. I'm somewhat finished with sanding of the first planking layer. It's a bit difficult to decide when to stop haha, but I can always tweak something along the way when i'm planking the second layer. The first layer isn't perfect...it doesn't have to be, but I have learn a lot in the process.
  3. Looks good indeed! If you need more curve in the middle, you can always use some planks between the clamp and the strips. But maybe that isn't necessary...it is a bit hard to tell on the photos.
  4. Looks good! Bulkhead 12 could be a bit more faired, it needs a lot fairing to get a smooth transition to bulkhead 13. But you can sand the planks also afterwards, so no problem.
  5. Well done! I'm also in the sanding part of the first layer. Good idea to test the counter...will do that
  6. That's certainly a good tip of Richard44 to place the garboard strake also in advance. First thing to say is...don't overthink indeed. Especially with your first ship. I didn't understand that whole planking process neither with my first ship that I build. It's important that you get an understanding how the planks are behaving etc. So a lot on feel works fine in the beginning. That being said...if you want to use the numbers and math I found that Chuck Passaro has the most clear explanation to me about planking. http://modelshipworldforum.com/resources/Framing_and_Planking/L
  7. This was the first time I really calculated everything...there where some flaws tho, but I have learn a lot with this first layer. That's why I took my time with this first layer, to understand the process of planking better. And doing the second layer with a better understanding of things.
