captgino Posted November 7, 2014 Share #1 Posted November 7, 2014 (edited) Here we go. Finally decided to get started on this project. Never done a wooden ship before. I have decided to start with a solid hull as it seemed.a little bit less overwhelming. I am treating this model as an experimentation to prepare for some bigger project and I have my shelves. The kit is very nice and the directions seemed clear enough. I started by sanding the hull and adding a coat of wood filler. After a final sanding session I was able to get a nice smooth finish. the direction on the kit, was asking you draw lines on the hull in lieu of deck planking. I have decided to practice planking by using thin strip of wood 3mm×50mm and glue them on the deck. I am having some difficulty with the angles and how to treat the edges. Good learning experience! !! Here are some pics to get started. I would appreciate suggestions and recommendations.
