Tnx. Feeling bit better but its a slow progress every Day. Havent been more then 20 meters from the front Door for 3 or 4 weeks now. Docter doesnt know any more wath to do and says ask specialist and specialist says in dont know ask your docter so have to figure it out by myself. So its building a bit then rest and building etc.

Little work is done today and yesterday. Planked all the decks and sanded them and put a layer of varnish over it. Now going further on the hull to reinforce it because it still breaks with cutting the gunports. After that a final layer of veneer. ..... and found my airbrush paint fog catcher also collects sanding dust.

Worked on hull and cannon ports. Reinforced the hull at the cannon ports. When i wanted to use nailpusher to fix the extra wood i pushed around 7 holes between the cannon ports so it was nesesery. Did both sides. Now i am making the definitief ports and dryfit the cannon ports. Luckely my proxxon sander does the most work. When all ports are ready in will put veneer on the hull. Tnx for watching.

Closed 1 part of the stern. Made 4 cannon ports at the Stern and planking the front deck. Now trying to find out the best way to start second planking with veneer. Cant find any good straight line to start.

You made a mistake with the placement of holes for cannons. This set unfortunately has such a mistake. It is a copy of the Panart set in which this error also occurs. It will be difficult for you to get the right location for the fenders right now. I buy the some set .You should study photo relation of Donie build.
