  1. It could be . This layout is decribed in "The Fully Framed Model, HMN Swan Class Sloops 1767-1780" written by David Antscherl and Greg Herbert". My understanding is that it's not certain that the Pegasus had this layout, but it was a possibility. I thought it was a nice step up to explore my skills and it looks cool to in my opinion.
  2. Not much building time for me last few months! So a very small update here. I only managed to plank the stern piece and just 2 planks above this as the building manual stated. I used different colored planks, but that was because of some scrapwood I had lying around. It's going to be painted so that's not a problem. I scraped the first layer off the stern piece which is made of ply so the thickness would stay the same when I planked it with vineer.
  3. Looks great!! My intention was also to use the "top and butt" planks for the wales, but with the curves in the bow it looked a bit daunting...but good to see you managed it well...gives me also a bit of confidence to tackle it
  4. Thanks! I hope i can get back on track with this step. Also everyone that liked the post, thanks for the encouragement
  5. Hello everyone! It's been a while since I updated...had some motivational problems :), but trying to pick up the pace again. Dry fitted the stern piece, soaked it...pinned it to the stern. then i let it dry overnight. And today used some glue so it's stays where it needs to be I used a screw with a little piece of wood in the middle to hold the stern piece down into the right curve. The pins just had not enough force to hold it down. Now waiting till the glue is dry. Then i'm going to plank it with some thin planks, nothing fancy because it will be painted black.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
