I can only imagine what you and your workspace looked like after this sanding spree  %%

Yesssss....!  :D :D :D :D :D
I dont know how many nails I hammered in .... must be more than 1000 per side ....Actually I used a lot of painters tape to make the tool better adapted to my tired hands and fingers .... one half of the hull done .... another one to go!



I used a lot of wood putty on this hull .... only to sand down 95% .... creating a lot of dust for nothing!



Hull is sanded .... the 4-5mm thick planks allows me to sand down a lot of material should the shape be a little bit crooky .... ready for the primer (Spraycan paint).




1/2 of the hull primed the first time .... sandind priming .... etc ....  %) I will use this color of prmer for all parts of the ship. This will keep the colors similar on the whole ship.



Next week ... back to the other side .... new week same sh..... ahem work. ok2

Finally the hull is ready for painting .... the sanding of it was really nasty dusty work .... my workspace is covered in sticky dust....



The hull was painted with the grey primer color.





Then I will finish the back of the hull and the color on the inside.

Thanks a lot!!!!!!  :-)) :-)) :-)) :kiss:
Finished painting twice the inside of the hull.



This wooden plantholder was found by my wife. I used over 60 screws to get it sturdy enough for the weight of the model. I also added wheels to it.



Checking clearances on the way to the elevator and/or the garage.



.... not much space left in the elevator!!!! max. 10-15cm!!!



.... the Cornelia Marie (or the N. Loredana) could park in the hull of the Mady-Jeanne!



Loverly shape it has .... I will add the last 6cm of planking in the next weeks. Then we'll see how she looks!

You should be very proud of yourself for making such a lovely hull. I’m looking forward to the rest of the build  :-))

Despite being a little tubbalub (  ok2 ) Mady Jean is quite compact. You would not get any warship over a destroyer in the elevator and the stand you and your wife have created would not be as practical either. That was a great idea putting the stand on wheels.

 :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) Thanks a lot my friends!!!!!  ;)
I wasnšt happy with the stern so I decided to get it done right. Adding the uprights would be nice isn't it?



But first I had to correct the radius of the part.



I cut out everything with the help of my trusty Proxxon with a flexible attachment tool and a cutting disc for tiles. Works well and the cut is easely done if you hold the thing very good in your hands....I also used a big file.



In the end it looked like that ....



Then it was time to glue a second layer of plywood to it ... just like I did with the frames. (no pic).

Planking the stern was a quick job!



First I had only 5 upgrights and I did not like it this way .... I added 4 more and it looks much better.



It will be visible in the end so it was important for me to get it right. I also have to sand everything in shape or it will look silly ....

Looks pretty good to me. You could have added thin false supports from ply but it would have looked like a Bankers house in Surbiton!

You're right! I could have made it a little bit thinner but this part has to be sturdy. Because from time to time the hull is resting upright on the stern ... must be over 10kg now and taking more weight every week.
