Finally ready to do this build log . I attempt to keep it all short and to the point . Received HMs Beagle , opened up to check the contents and condition. Checked to see if there was any damage or anything had warped during the packaging , transport etc . All seemed ok

Started to plank the deck. This is where I made my first error . I chose the thicker lime wood , as opposed to the veneer that I was supposed to . I had already glued and clamped it all when  I realised the mistake . So I left it as is , I figured it would not affect anything in the grand  scheme of things

Looks like you've made a great start to the build and are make fine progress.  I'm doing the same build but having a few issues along the way.  I don't find the instruction too helpful so I tend to just use them as a pointer.  I'm very interested to see how you progress so will keep a close eye on your build log.

I have finished the first planking . I used a jig I made to bend the planks beforehand , so were ready for use when the time came . I attempted to follow the pattern as in the diagrams , but got lost in the detail I think . Bow turned out a bit messy , stern looks okay . I will attempt to repair the damage during the sanding process

You seem to be doing great on your build . I try and follow the instructions then see if the video is of assistance . Between the 2 options I try and work it out

Sanding done . Had to repair a few places as some of the top layer wood is really brittle , and there seems to be a variety of finishing on the wood. some do not have as good an edge . I'm starting to fit the  ribbons on the outside . To make the bend I used the same template I made earlier that bent the bulwarks and the first planking . Left it in the winter sunshine to dry out before I used it
