Minimum thickness for planks

Recommended Posts


Since my Jacinthe project ( a buildlog will be done once im certain that my extra bulkheads were lofted correctly) is advancing i will soon have to decide about the planks i wish to use. According to Boudriot the Anemone class shooner at 1:48 would have 0,8mm (1/31 inch) thick planks. Since this is a somewhat odd value i was thinking about using 1mm ( 1/25 inch) thick strips of wood (cherry or pearwood)  but im not certain if they are thick enough to permit proper bending. Can anyone give me some advice regarding this problem? Is 1,5mm better? Am i worrying too much? :)


Thanks in advance,
