Hello all,

This is my first foray into the world of wood modelling, its been underway for a couple of weeks now so here is a quick photo catch-up.

Learning a lot, pretty happy so far but I know that I have failed to taper the planks correctly at the bow and made things difficult for myself, but that being said everything looks reasonably symmetrical so feel content to continue with the second planking with that lesson firmly embedded!

Cheers,

Mark.

Your first planking is looking very good - so you made a correct and good decision to start with such a longboat kit.
You are learning fast and you get practice with such a small vessel - very good that you have started this building log.
So I am looking forward to see your next working steps
