Tanganyka deck planking substitute

Recommended Posts

Hi again,


I have decided to make some adjustments to a model I have been working with of the Black Prince. These adjustments will require require me replank the deck. The kit called planking the deck withTanganyka and I used all the kit offered. However, when I went to purchase more Tanganyka from Model-Expo online, this was discontinued.


Would anyone have suggestions for a more available wood for deck planking that could reasonably substitute for deck planking on 1775 schooner?

Basswood will be a good substitute. I have used in on several decks and it always looks good. It is light colored, although shades will vary from strip to strip. It is available in strips of many widths and thicknesses. You can get it affordably from many places including your local hobby shop or crafts store.
