Hi everyone :)

 

The construction of the planking is very long ( model is 4 feets long ) . It is necessary to treat the wood (pear), to dry it, and to cut it. The sticking is realized on an adhesive what facilitates the work and avoids the tasks.

Hello Vincent!

 

Those guys on the deck make me realize the enormous size of these ships. She is looking beatiful. I do like the different colours of the 4 feet long planks of ther deck.

 

I´ll follow your log.
