Here is the start of my build log for MarisStella's kit of the Trabacollo. The kit consists of laser cut billets both walnut and plywood. The wood is mainly walnut with some lime wood and a little oak. The kit also comes with four pages of excellent plans. All wood appears to be of top quality and laser cut boards are done very well. First impressions that this a first rate kit.

I also wanted to add, but I couldn't get out of the preview mode, that I just finished this model in November so this log will be a little condensed. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I should be done this build(log) in about three weeks.....wouldn't that be something to do in real life!!
Hope you enjoy

Don

Hello Don

Great job you are doing on your Trabaccolo, this sure is a very nice and well put together kit, seems to be a notch above all of the others or it looks that way from here. Keep up the great work and do keep the pictures coming, ENJOY.

Regards Lawrence

Not sure why I included this picture, this is making the porthole covers for the companionway.

Thanks to everyone for stopping by, comments and likes. Hope you enjoy, more coming soon.

G'day Don and Jos.
This is not fast, it's 'warp 9.95'. My head is still spinning when you zoooooomed past me.
:oops:
I was going to say when you done the final planking on the hull......'another Mile Stone on a great job with the planking' but, now I gonna say increadale decking furniture.mate.:p
I'll was going to say, I'll grab a chair and watch for another entry, but this will be over very soon, so I'll occupy this space standing up.:rolleyes:
I wish I could be as quick as you.
