The Nordlandsboat has taken some colors!
The exterior is painted in matte black and wood tint with fade, the strake in Nordic blue!
All the rails are still to come and will brighten up the edges, with a clay white tint like the cabin door frame.
The interior of the hull also received its floor tinted rather black gray, plus the deck in front of the cabin created (does not exist in the kit) with slats that rest on 2 of the crossbeams.
I'm going to start making the rear cabin.

Very nicely done and photographed for us. I had not thought about assembling a "plate" of planks as you did for the cabin top. I'll have to remember that. Looking for the masting and sails to come. RichThe colors continue to make this Nordland even more complete.
The cabin roof "with clinkers" questioned me a bit to know how to do it (the kit, of course, asked for everything flat without relation to the reality of these boats). So I finally proceeded flat to compose the offsets and keep a regularity.
Then, I had to glue this "plate", adjust, cut, glue, paint.
The bulwark rails are in place, the chainplates, the positions of the oarlocks, the dressing of the blue strake with black bands.
The rudder is done, the whole rudder will soon be in place.
It's going well!
