18th century longboat - planking

Recommended Posts

I am attempting a scratch build of an 18th Century Longboat using plans a Model Expo kit that I purchased for a club build.


I am building it at twice the size of the original 1/4" scale plans.  The kit plans and directions show using one length of plank for each strake. 

Is this true to the full size long boats or is this a convention to ease building the model's (1/4" scale) small size?
