Hello Mark!

I use a minitool, 12 Volt, for planking. That gives nice connections and you don't need wood putty. It grinds edges and curves and eats no wood like a plate grinder.
Simply sand freely according to lines or markings. It works.

The machine is 30 years old with no problems.

This is the same machine only with new business name.

Successful modeling.

Hello Mark!

I forget: you have to bend your planks. The shown planks are too straight and do not follow the hull.

With best regards
Thomas
I'm not exactly sure what you mean. laid out 4 bands on each side of the hull. The planks follow those bands as close as possible.
