Planking goes on. The planking takes time because i am using only white glue and i have to taper both tips of each plank and have to soak them to bend. The magohany is a brittle wood and we need to be carefuly while benging it.
yep, I've got 4 times a much Mahogany on the AL Santa Ana. Its slow going but it finishes up nicely with a scraper. I soak in hot water then use a hot old curling iron to shape it. Works great and take about 10 min to shape a plank.
I got retired and returned back to my homecity. I am in my shipyard again. In the kit plan there is no second layer planking but I decided to make it because i didn't like first one. I am using 0,5 mm of mahogany strips.
Very Nice, I have this same kit and have been putting off building it. Eventually I'll get to it. but for Now I'll pull up a chair and watch your Build. She looks great. I love the Mahogany one of my Favorite Woods.
