Thank you very much for the compliments!!!!! :-)) :-)) :-))
I try to do my best to keep you entertained all the time ...  ok2

I added the planks on the other side of the bow .... not many left to do there ....



At the stern there is a lot of work waiting for me .... and I have to start thinking about the motor size, reduction gear, water pumps and the piping for them ....



I always fill the spaces at the bow with glue ....

Yes I know that .... on a model it just doesn't matter as the wood won't be visible at the end. I may build another model after this one and all mistakes made sofar will be corrected and the model will be even better! ok2

Easy to answer  %).....and the answer is 2,246 zinc plated panel pins of 15 x 1 sizing  :P

Calculated from 4680 pins per 500gm....[manufacturers listing]
So 936 pins per 100gm x 2.4 = 2246 {-)

Now thats a big number!!!! 2246 nails .... some of them fell on the floor and some of them where replaced because I bend them ....  ok2
I like to nail the planks onto the frames. I saves me from using zig millions clamps and waiting a long time till I can glue the next plank. With my method I can fix some 4-5 planks in 2 hours.

BTW I had to switch from 13x5 to 10x5 planks. Bending was getting very difficult.

No Problem! All nailheads will be hammered in 1-1.5mm further into the wood before sanding the planks.
The picture shows how this will look. The "holes" will then be filled with putty ...

Instead of Putty, you could use a filler of creamy texture,  spread it over all the planks, filling the nail holes and gaps in one operation and then sand down to shape.


Some of the 'modern' wood fillers can be thinned to watery/creamy consistency. The catch is if thinned with 'thinners' quick evaporation will occur. So if possible a water based filler is more suitable. Gives more time to work and better for the wood.


Looking good O0 O0 O0 :-)) :-)) :-))

I think that sanding dust mixed with PVA is far superior, or even better 2 pack epoxy thinned down mixed with the dust, but more difficult to sand back.

Don't use that trick if you are applying a polish or timber stain over the wood as the PVA will show through as 'water' type stain, as it seals the grain.

If you use the right type of sandpaper then you do not need to bed the nails down. The sandpaper will happily remove the nail heads as you sand.

Brian is no doubt referring to metal removing papers such as wet and dry, emery, etc, used in car body working.

As such it will work using powered sander, provided that the nails are soft steel and not stainless or hardened. If the wood is very soft softwood then yes pitting will occur around the nail.

Another trick, If you don't want to punch the nails then cut the heads off. Will still hold whilst adhesive sets.



Tricks of the trade are just that, tricks to be used in certain circumstances, not general usage such as kerf cutting on another thread.
