I'm new to boat building and just starting on the planking. Before I do though I'd like to know how I'm going to proceed with it. The instructions say that at the bow I'll need to taper the planks and at the stern I'll need to fill in the gaps created.


Tapering is no problem, but what kind of wood putty will be good to fill in the gaps? I'm not planning on painting the hull, just finishing it so need something wood coloured. The only thing my local model shop (Norfolk, uk) stocks is milliput, however the owners don't do model boats themselves so couldn't advise. Is milliput good stuff if I get the right colour?
