Yes my woodworking cave smells lovely of wood, burnt plywood (if I am sanding or miling it) and glue and of freshly washed clothes if the washer and dryer are in use ....Lavender.

Today is nailday ..... hehe .... not fingernails ....
First you have to drill a lot of holes .... too many for my liking!
Then each one needs a 1x10 nail .... I will build in 1/6 scale the next time!!!!



After that you have to hammer in all of them a little bit .... if not they will fall out!!!



Then you can use your muscles to get the nails in! No need to take care of anything .... all in they go asap.



All hammered in and with the help of a steel needle (3mm dia. and no point) you can hammer in the nailhead into the planks.



Sanded it down a little bit. Should one nailhead be still to high hammer it in a little bit more.



The downside of it .... you can't do much more in one go before going nuts! %%
I will do it plank after plank or just in small sections in the future.
So my friends ... thats all for today!  ok2

You are all too funny!!! :}

Today I thought why not glueing on the plank and nail it to the hull in one go .... it would safe all the work with the clamp!!
I've done it and it works very well!!!





The last plank was one on the bow which is normaly tricky for the clamps as they do not work well there.
No problem! With just one clamp and the nails the plank is held firmly in place!

Being quite thin, I would have though that three nails in each frame would be enough to hold the plank in place especially as the wood is new and the curve is not extreme. It will save you loads of time Danielle.

Message replied to says he shaking head and rolling eyes! Two should still be enough for 1/8th strip especially fresh timber as is evident in the piccies.

Danielle............. >>:-( please do not make  a request to delete your build thread......I have sent you a PM, with my landline e-mail address...this is also freely available in my profile

You e-mail the images to me & I will post them in your thread for you.....it would be best to add just a few words with each image...I can copy & past those words so to be seamless :-))

More than happy to do this until your host/ISP issue is resolved

OK....here we go.....

Here is the text for the posting from Danielle....

The hull weights 4.5kg .... I think it may end up 5.5kg after the planks are done.
No need for clamps etc anymore .... I just love it .... hammering in nails is more fun than hampering with clamps and other things that fall off all the time.
The 1-2" near the keel will be planked later.

Danielle.....

The first images posted without a hitch O0

Could I ask that the next images be in the same order reference Pic5, Pic6, Pic7, Pic8  etc........I don't used any such simple image convention ...so from your e-mail, I save the individual files back to a ZIP drive prior to posting on MBM, they will be so easy to find for me to attach to your thread

I am sure that Martin will find the issue.......but I am more than happy to post your hull & build images progress ..........

[PS ..I resize my own images to 1025 x 577 pixels.........and end up at sub 300 KB.......these are larger than your ~~185 KB file you sent to me]

Hi Danielle,

May I suggest joining the Mayhem's picture site with a new name and signing in details.

I had to do this myself as it doesn't accept certain sequences of letters or numbers.

Once you have  'joined up', then open this site alongside the Mayhem's site and switch between the two when posting.

Hope this helps
