Chuckaug Posted November 18, 2015 Share #1 Posted November 18, 2015 I am fairly new to the forum and have read extensively. This is a great resource and has been tremendously helpful. I am in the process of resurrecting an Artesania Latina Swift Model which I started and abandoned about 15 years ago. I am in the process of applying the second planking. The kit provides walnut planking which is 5mm x 0.6 mm. I understand the theory behind shaping and tapering the planks and did a fair job on the first layer many years ago. I am finding it difficult to sand the second planks to a final shape because they are so thin. It is very difficult to sand the edge in order to fine tune the final shape - the wood seems to be too flimsy to stand up sandpaper applied to the edge. I am trying to minimize gaps and the need for filler as I would like to leave the hull natural with a "poly" coating. Are there any suggestions or techniques to help? BTW - once I get myself organized and master the photography I will start a build log - if not for this model at least for my next. Thanks to all Chuck Canute and mtaylor 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
