Hi Rony,

 

You're doing a fine job. You got the planking very smooth and fair. I'm impressed. I believe the second layer of planking you asked about in your last photo is mahogany. Beautiful wood! Keep the photos coming.

Rony, Steve is spot on, that wood is some kind of mahogany. Your hull looks good. looks ready for the second layer.

You can get the sheen up with oils like your danish oil with some elbow grease. It takes several applications and rubbing out between coats. One coat wont do it.

Rony, Your planking looks very smooth. Did your kit come with a bundle of very thin, darker brown strips of wood? I think that's why the wood on your model isn't looking like the wood in post #7. The model in that photo has the same wood as yours, but it also has a second layer of mahogany planks applied over the first layer. The mahogany planks are paper-thin; in fact, you can cut them easily with scissors. Those mahogany planks will look just the photo #7 when you apply the Danish oil to them. My apologies if you knew this already. Hope this helps.
