Hi all
It's monsoon season in darwin and it's been hammering down all night and today .
So over the last 2 weeks just been filling and sanding ,then happy with that I put on a sanding sealer which made it come up great .
Now I'm doing the lower gun ports as it says to recess these 1 mm for the gun port lids and the outer layer is 1 mm .all good happy modelling and onwards with the gun ports

I got all the gun port patterns finished ( bar the ones without lids they are 2 be done after 2nd planking) + I added the quarter galleries patterns now it's time 4 the 2nd planking I added the front toiletries so I could plank up to them all good up to now
Cheers snowy and happy modelling oh.by the way one of these photos is the amati drakker which I just started as an in between as I only do a few 2nd planking per day to let them go off and dry

Very good progress, Snowy and good luck for your second planking. What timber did Amati supply for the final layer?

Also, if you don't mind, can you start a new thread for Amati's Drakar. I would follow your thread for sure. That would be great. :)

G'day me maitees
Still doing the 2nd planking so I thought I would move on to other objects that will have to be attended to .i have finished the binnacle and the ships bell and I did the gun ports separately as I wanted overhang the same as on the top and bottom
Cheers snowy and everyone stay safe20200407_163908.jpg20200407_102548.jpg

G'day brian
Yeah mate I'm still thinking she will become the bellerphoron.
And yes it's an amati- victory kit so there will be copper plates .
The paint scheme I'm still thinking about as it's either nelson chequer style or a bit of both as shown on plan20200422_075905.jpg
