I thought I was being really careful butting up the ends.... seems I need to be even more diligent!

And if you were modelling a ravine it would look like an excellent rope bridge deck  {-)

If you are not going to use card former when planking and are proposing using a second layer could I suggest you make mini planks two or three matches wide.
You can then sand chines to best shape for planks

I am well on in building a working matchstick model based on Vic Smeeds "Mistral" details at :-
http://www.lightkeepersjourney.com/hobbies.html#+
Which gives some of the ways I built my model

This is weird, This is the update from last week, as you can see, the plate completely covers the template, from end to end ....





Yet this week, when I inspected it, it's now 10mm short???








 No idea!.... But I will do a DNA test on it against the wife!  {-)

Anyway, cut the end off clean, glued in a few extra rows, job done.

On to the other hull plate side .... don't know which is port or starboard sides as yet.
I know my methodology and double, triple, quadruple checked I had a matching set, left and right,
 .... but if you think about, they ambidextrous!  {-)









Again, gaps in the match butt joints .... and I thought I was being really careful!   <:(

Next the hull sides ....  no dramas.

Get to listen to great stuff on the radio or documentaries on Utube.

This is about 3 hours worth of matches!
