Here is where i am now. I have started the second layer of planking. Going a little slow because this layer is what everyone will see. The walnut strips are in good shape only a couple had bad spots that i removed.

It's really shaping up nicely!  Nice even planking.  Hope my Vic come out as nice.  You're blazing the trail for me as I am referring to your build with great interest.  Understand about going slowly.  I figured I'll do the same thing with the first layer as this is the first build I've planked.  Do you have a picture of the stern of your build?  The picture you posted on 22 Sept doesn't really show how you ended the planking in the stern.  I have made some balsa blocks that I can carve as a filler but it will really be an aggressive angle to carve.

Nice.  You have done a heck of a job.  I have the older version and someday will give it a go.  Keep posting.

With the second planking and the stern completed I have the gun ports drawn on both sides of the hull. One gun port cut out and many more to do. After cutting the gunport I and using the supplied gun port liners to fit so everything lines up and fits as required

Returning to building the ship tomorrow after a week in the Dominican Republic. Dodged the winter storm across the US. 

David56 it's really looking good! I finished the first layer and did some sanding and wood filler. How smooth did your ship need to be before you started the 2nd planking? I look at it and think good enough but....? I compared with the previous pic you posted on 30 Oct and mine looks like yours below the water line. Hope mine comes out as good as your is going. Keep plugging away at it. Your blazing the trail.

i got mine really smooth so that there were high or low spots i use wood filler to fill low spots and small gaps. The smoother you get the first layer the less problem you will have will the second. On the second layer only had to do sanding around the bow and then a fine sanding over the rest of hull to get it smooth. You do not want any high and low spots when you start the copper tiles

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal.
