I marked points to pay special attention while mounting, BEFORE planking

Be ready to add extra parts to ribs and to cut excessed parts. Nothing serious, it happen almost every time when use "plank on ribs" method, we are not master modellers

 

If you plan to make second plank layer, and paint model in natural colours of real Cutty, then sanding and putty will resolve problems. But, if you do not plan second layer, or intend to keep natural wood colour, then you must pay extra attention to this details. Planks must run smooth around ship, and symmetrical on both sides. If do not, you will have unsymmetrical model, and you do not want this

 

Also you can apply different techniques of filling spaces between ribs, to help planks to lay better. There is a lot articles on MSW about that

 

Keep good work !
