Hallo Adi,
good to see an update of your model activities and progress !
Very good, accurate and technically correct (I think) nailing pattern - It is looking very good
Endspurt - there are not so much planks and nails missing :cool:

First of all, thank you very much for your likes and comments. Somewhat slowed down by my job, my progress was slow, but I did manage to pull up the planks of the later open side. The terrible nail job included. I already dream about it at night.;)

What additionally stops is the breaking of the planks along the direction of the grain, despite watering and bending with the soldering iron.
Repair or scratch build is the order of the day here.

Here I have opted for repair. Below then the installation.

I am using every time the water based one - some drops of water with a brash on the area - and after some waitiing and repeating and some help with a sharp knife into the joint .......
In my opinion and experience for static models the best ......

ES passiert immer wieder einmal, dass man eine Klebestelle wieder öffnen muß
Ungluecklicherweise, das stimmt.
Dear friends, I am infinitely grateful for your kind support. You must know that although I can handle English quite well, I have to learn many special shipbuilding terms. That the „stringers“ are called carlings is now clear to me.:):)
That's not English, Adi--that's Schiffbau (ship building lingo).

It is a great log to follow! The composition of your planking has a really workmanlike character to it which I find very realistic. I am following your work on the deck fitments with great interest.
