I finally got in some time planking some more of the hull with walnut strips. The darkness is because I put water on the planks to simulate poly stain. I also found out that using CA while the strip is wet really helps alot in bending and it seems the CA soaks into the strip better.

Hi Donnie,
Nice looking ship. I live in the UK and was born and bred in Cornwall the best county in in England. I am going home to visit in Sept and when I contacted them to order the ship OCCRE Aurora Brig 1:65 the girl was very polite and offered to keep it back for me so that I could pick it up whilst on my holidays there. I am glad yours arrived safely and shows that CMB are a good company to deal with. Roll on Christmas so we can all see the start of your build. :handgestures-thumbup:
Roger.

Thanks I appreciate the feedback. The following images are of the wood dry. The circles are of using a compass and using measurement arcs to determine how close I am of the sides being equal in width of planking. Maybe off just a little, but can't really tell that much. I am fairly satisfied so far with my planking and I can't imagine covering all this work up with white paint. That is why I am thinking of just using polyurethane.

G'day Donnie
I have spent the last 2 to 3 days reading your incredible tutorial log.
WOW

There isn't enough thank you left to say how well you have done, not only with the build, but with your amazing logs.

I've haven't had the pleasure in building a model for this kit's manufacturer. But I have done an AL kit and after a few pages of instructions, I threw it out because of the translation problem. E.G. It mentioned a rubber band in the introduction and after a few hours of frustration, I discovered they were talking about bumper bars like in cars, so it was the WALE that they were referring to.
:angry-cussingblack:
Well mate keep up with your great work and can I ask for more of your videos please.

Thanks guys, I really appreciate the positive feedback. I was able to get a lot done today. I used a wet paper towel over the planking to accentuate the grain and how it might look once poly urethane is applied.

I am not sure if I want to treenail all of this or not. I really need to get a drawplate. Never used one anyway, but it is time to learn I guess. Does anyone know of a good one to buy and where?
