Nice looking deck,second layer of the hull planking also ,good start ,just one not on that,why are you so wide planks for the second layer?

Hi Zoltan,


I looked around on the plan and documentation and I was not able to confirm which size to use 3/16 or 1/4. Since I used 1/4 for the first layer, I decided to use this one as well.

I like the look of it.

Does it seem too big?

I finished the second layer planking of the hull. I applied one coat of natural stain. 

It is by far not a perfect planking job. I guess practice will make perfect. One side is better than the other. :)

The next step is to touch up the yellow ocre and the black here and there. The final step of this hull will be one or two coat of poly.

You can remove most of the solder with the wire brush tool for the dremel. Then re-blacken. But I don't really see anything in the photo though. Remember that you won't be able see it as closely once the ship is rigged as you can holding it in your hand. The galley stack and tree pumps came out nice.

Long time since I posted something... 

I have been quite busy with the standing rigging. I worked on the shrouds, jiboom, Dead-eyes, horse.

I also attached the cleats to the shrouds. Once the shrouds are attached I will give them another coat of paint. 

I started on the back stay as well.
