achuck49 Posted July 19, 2015 Share #1 Posted July 19, 2015 Good Sunday Morning; I am a person who has yet to figure out how to plank 'anything'. I have run out of solid hull models and decided to open a box that has been waiting for about 18 months. It is the Morgan (Model Shipways) and this is probably good because several have been built on this forum. I have much to do before I get to the planking stage so this is a question in advance. The instructions state that I should make the tick strip for the planking directly from the plans page. Belts A and B look reasonable (???) but Belt C looks impossibly small/thin. Is this the way you master builders did it or should I use the method of measuring the plank width, times it by the width of the belt and so forth? It is also required to build the whale boats from layers (the shapes are provided) and carve or sand them into shape. Can someone tell me how this was done in "real life". I am especially interested in how the interior of the boats where accomplished. I hope that my questions are clear enough for all to understand. Again no rush, I am just planning ahead. Thanks so much Chuck Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
