Lovely neat planks Danielle. I will have a go at cutting mine for the Armoured Cruiser in due course.

For me cutting timber ist just fun! I could do that as a living!!!

Tody I rechecked the symetry of the hull .... not perfect but for me its alright. The Cornelia Marie and the N. Loredana had bigger mistakes regading the symetry!



I wanted to have a plank to the inside of the hull so that the frames and uprights will be secured. So I did that to a short length of the hull and I was happy with the result.



First one is glued in place ....



Another one at the bow ....



And I partially sanded down one side .... just love the look of it.



Skipper is inspecting today work .... he is very happy with it.

Fixed 2 planks to the hull yesterday ....



... and beefed up the first frame. It was to thin and glueing the planks to it too much of a hassle. Thats 9mm ply ... cuttings from the Cornelia Marie.



Today 4 planks .... glued and nailed in place in one go!!! Quick and tiring process. In a few days I will have to turn over the hull or I can't use the hammer for the nails anymore ...

I look at the work of art that the frames are and think its a shame to cover them in planking O0 O0 Beautiful work Danielle.

Totally agree Brian. If I were to commission a scale model of the Mary Rose as she is today, I would call on Danielle or Brian B as they both do superb carpentry.

Thanks a lot my friends!!!!!  :-))
Brian B and other work much better than I do ....  ok2

The planks at the stern need to be watered and fixed to the hull for 6-12h ... here you may see how nice its bent in two driections.
Sorry for the crappy pictures today ....



The next one fixed on the hull and will be ready tomorrow ....

Time to take the hull off of its workbase .... I can put it back anytime as long as there are no planks near the keel.



Works very well my workbase .... I can't use the keel-up method .... it disturbs the 3D view and I can't get the shapes right.



A new delivery of planks has arrived .... the small profiles in the front are the rest of what I did cut off..... I will use it for other projects.



A quick sanding just to show off my work .... I used a sanding block. The hammer and a punch(?) are used to drive the nailheads into the planks. I will try to get all nailheads into the planks before I do the sanding. The nailheads wont be visible at the end. I will cover the holes with some putty.



Hull weights nearly 5kg .... massive but not really heavy!

The quintessential essence of the hobby hoarder is useful offcuts of wood! At what point do you say you have enough and cycle through your collection rooting out poorer pieces for use as stirrers etc?


Looking good  ok2

I normally use cutoffs for the deck planks and the small ones for the inside of the wheelhouse. Maybe I start building model houses or freight cars in 1/13 scale from trench light railways in WWI (project started) ....

BTW any suggestions for a motor? I was thinking of the same Krick Max Gear 6:1 (12V, batteries 12V) I used for the N. Loredana .... maybe it is to small for a 30-40kg boat?
I will use a geared version .... with it I can go "full ahead" and the propeller 80mm turns with 3-4000rpm maximum ....

The one I used with the N. Loredana .... https://www.racingmodellbau.ch/schiffsmodellbau/antriebe-und-zubehor/max-gear-getriebemotor-6-1

It also exists in 2.5-1 version ....

Sunday I made a net/trawldoorwinch with my Meccano my dad had as a kid .... and I had it too .... wonderful construction you can make!
The goal is to have a 100% working netwinch (incl. trawldoor winch) without the need to use my hands to let it into the water ....





The hull is just a little bit too big for my small workspace .... but I always find a solution to work on it. The N.Loredana is also in this this workspace with washmachine/dryer and my eBike.



Today only 3 planks to do to have a left/right side the same ....

HI Danielle, as you are starting to sand the planks, save the sawdust to make a filler paste, just put a stocking over the hoover nozzle to collect the dust, then mix with PVA into a thick or thin paste, saves money and just as a bonus it matches the planks perfectly.

Planking at the stern is nearly done .... looks alright for me. I must say that planking is going very smoothly at the moment. Since plank #1 (on top, where the deck will be) I could add one plank after plank with ease. The curves and bends are sometimes just under the breaking point of the planks at the bow.







At the bow there are a lot planks to add.... some of them I added today.

Displament of the hull .... the original model has a weight of 50kg..... waterline is some 50mm lower than the first plank .... I am shure it will be way over 30kg! %)

There where some nice hulls to be seen in Brittany .... northern brittany have only a few ports.



They main problem at the moment is .... I am without a job since nearly two years .... this means I am on holidays since 2 years and its getting boring and demotiviation has to be fought every day ..... I had a new job for 2 month but had to quit it just before xmas because I couldn't do my job and the person I should have worked with had never time to for me (invoicing of servicing rapports).

Symetrical planks on the bow .... the planks are still in one line frome the bow to the stern. Never made a hull like this one .... it has a perfect shape.

We wouldn't expect anything less Danielle! Was that boat in the picture past its best, or was the water rougher than it looked?


Mind you it doesn't seem to have a wheel house  {:-{

The hull seen in the picture is left to rot on the beach .... this is an usual thing to do if your boat is old and dying .... let it sit on a beach or in marshland where the elements will turn it back into its single elements. Tanks have been emptied and all big equipment, engine, netwinches etc removed.

I think under EU law it is forbidden but I have seen one new hull since february at the port of Paimpol.

At work again after easter .....
First I needed more glue .... I use a lot of glue at the moment. I use only this quality for my models .... its not waterproof but everything is waterproofed with color and lacquer.



Planking is nearing its end .... maybe 2 more weeks .... can't see it anymore and my wrists are in a bad shape at the moment.

Hello Danielle!
Give yourself a pat on the back for the excellent woodwork and the 25000 views!
Watching you building a modelboat is like watching a full scale build!
