Hallo my friend,
Hi Poul, yes treated the areas that do not need glue just to see how it looked with tung oil. Thanks for the hinge thing ( must have overlooked them) but to be honest, I don’t like them and they look well out of proportion so I’ll fabricate my own. Doorknob is like @Uwek says a nail head and I used some transparent sheets for the glass. I have done the bulkheads and it’s really rewarding and calming work. I have started with the planking ( did the stern) and enjoying the work. It requires a methodical and measured approach so my patience will be tested, particularly as I plan to use woodglue only
Short comment to this example - you are right, but keep in mind, that this model is double big than ours - it is scale 1:24 !!!
You are doing a very good job on the planking - Looking really goodThe clinker planking is not easy to do for a newbie like me but thoroughly enjoyable. Every time I take a plank out of the sheet (takes me 10 min in average to locate it in the manual) I think “how on earth will this fit, it looks all wrong”!?. But after a bit of filing, bevelling, soaking, bending and twisting it does fit. Easy does it ( broke one plank already) but it is taking shape.
I will use the CAF planking on the exposed side.
From row 18 the planking becomes easier indeedShort comment to this example - you are right, but keep in mind, that this model is double big than ours - it is scale 1:24 !!!

and with some experience with several rows it will get easier and faster - it is a question of routine
