Now is time for the top of the gunwale.......at this time you have to realize that the plans are a “little different” to reality...... then make your hull been your reference, You will realize also that the two sides are not completely identical so..... try your best for make those differences “unnoticeable”

Of course... we have to aged them.....For this I took a note about where the oars should work, the ropes will work and I put a little more attention to those sites.....

Also I needed to fabricate some cleats.....

The nailing has been done with sewing pins.

To the main hull, I cut them. Flat them with a sander belt and blue them. Also I decided to tape the hull in order to protect it. As a drill bit I used one of those pins, it worked really well, and the hole was perfect to ensure the pins.

MORE THAN 1000 PINS WERE NEEDED!!

Can I Ask you, why are you using the papertape under the pins? Are you trying to protect the wood?

Great work, all scratch built! Details and weathering also look good.

Keep up the good work and post more photos.

Are you going to add sails?

It is “finished”..... Because I decided to do it by myself, I decided not to go after a full dimension. Is going to be part of the diorama decoration so I did no see the need to do it. This little thing took almost a week to be finished .......
