Thanks Heinrich , in the future the Duyfken , still on my mind , both my wife and myself just recovered ( we are not vaccinated for health reasons ) from Covid a couple of weeks ago , took Ivermectin 12mg for a couple of days and Q-10, and other Immune boosters and are as good as gold ! So your own immunity is paramountIt is great to see you start this project Robert - I will be in the front row to cheer you on. I do hope there is a Duyfken-build also scheduled in the future though!
Good morning Robert. Good to hear your and your wife have come through Covid well. A new project that is awesome- look forward to it. Cheers GrantHad to wait a couple of months for my next project , the Lady Nelson , she is tiny in comparison to the ‘Cutty Sark ‘ I recently finished .
just dry fit the bulkheads and false deck just to see what it looks like , so I will post more pictures with the build progress

Thanks Paul, It is a little one ( Lady Nelson ) to fill in time , I am running out of space here to display big ones , I make sure there will be scenic photo’s coming along as well , at the moment it is raining , raining here in Sydney , we have rain falls so far equal to a whole year !Pleased to hear your recovery news and that you have a new ship on the workbench. Looking forward to more scenic photos!
Thanks Grant , we experienced the Covid not such as a dead thread , just extremely tired as your own immune system is working overtime to fight the virus , and no appetite for about 10 days , with the alternative medications we got over it pretty quickly , both of us feeling fine now .Good morning Robert. Good to hear your and your wife have come through Covid well. A new project that is awesome- look forward to it. Cheers Grant
Soaked the Bulwark strips in hot water for an hour or so , and used an Amati electric plank bender to get the correct bow shape , they work pretty good , before installing them I beveled the bulkheads where necessary , I didn’t glue the bulkheads extension as they will have to removed at a later stage , using CA glue just on the edges of the deck where they meet the bulkheads ,you might notice I filled the void spaces at the bow with Balsa wood and sanded to have a nice surface for planking not on the instructions though
The Workshop !
Happy ??That's WAY too tidy to be a working man's shop! Where are the tools, the research books, the saws, the lathe, the sewing machine, the racks full of hardwood, and the stained, paint spattered, beat up old workbench with the vice and covered with half assembled models?
