  1. I have one of these that’s almost complete. I have enjoyed working on it so much that I bought another kit so that I can have a do-over. I used the copper nails included with the kit. I also found them to be out of scale and even purchasing additional nails wasn’t going to cut it. So, I moved on to copper wire. That worked out well. Then I bought some sterling wire from fire mountain gems that I will use on my next build. I figure if it tarnishes, it will be black. It’s stiff enough to push through drilled holes and soft enough to flatten with a punch and an anvil. I don’t have the skill
  2. I don’t see the need for filler, unless you want the practice! Just fill in the small square at the stern them smooth the whole thing out. It’s looking really good. I like the way you used the walnut down the center. Are you going continue that on the main deck?
  3. I was traveling in Italy and purchased this kit sometime around 1995. I started it sometime in the 90s, but got frustrated with the second layer of planking and put it away. What with our current environment, I pulled it out again and have been making some good progress. The photo is staged none of the deck furniture is fastened yet. You’ve got your work cut out for you. I will enjoy following along.
