18th Century Longboat by oneslim (Bob W) - Model Shipways - scale 1:48

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,


I've had this kit for some time and decided that it will be a good short term project.  Also, I purchased the boxwood upgrade from "Crown Timberyard". 


Crown Timberyard includes 1/32" x 1/8" boxwood for laying the hull strakes.  I had some difficulty bending these to shape,  so started spiling from a 1/32" sheet of boxwood.  It's so much easer to lay the strakes once one spilies.  Following are photos of my progress.



False Keel added to a boxwood keel.

Build Board with level lines to sight bulkheads, with strips added to the tops of bulkheads and a block to hold the boat.
