I quite enjoy planking - it can seem daunting as a whole but you need to think of each plank as a separate job and fit each plank as best you can. Take your time and you will be fineBigGrin

Good advice there Stevie_o.

Hi Dave,
I agree with Stevie's post 161 this is the way that I planked my Victory, it can be a nerve racking experience at first but the more you do the better you are at it.

Also what I found, if you soak your wood and pin it around curves (as the Bow) and leave it over night to dry it will be less difficult to fit and will look good with no gaps because it has shrunk back to is original size also get ready to start tapering and read as much as you can about planking as I do.

Thanks all for the comments.

I have continued up the hull and as you can see not far too go now BigGrin

A bit more on the bottom too, I am jumping back and forth in the manual a bit, the way I have done it is how advised in the manual, I just need to go back to do the bow and stern.

I have also started tapering the edges of the planks as advised to get them to sit closer to together, I think you will agree by looking at the pictures from the front that I have got a bit better than the first couple. The gaps wiil be filled with small wedges of wood when I've finished the hull.

That's all for a few days as off to Amsterdam tomorrow morning

The planking is nice and neat Dave, just wondering is there a reason you have stopped staggering the planks at the bottom.

Thanks Nightwisher, This is how the planking is covered in the instructions.

I believe it does start to stagger shortly as it comes up the hull

Looking good Dave... Planking where the joints are not staggered is not the usual way planking is done but in this instance you are spot on by following the instructions, that way you shouldn't go wrong... Keep up the good work, looking forward to your next update.....Cool Cool

Alan

Thanks Alan, I did think about planking with staggered joints after reading lots of material on planking but in the end went with the instructions, as you say I cant go too wrong that way BigGrin

More progress has been made today, I am basically now up to the top of the bulwarks with the planking, with the exception of a plank and a half at the stern.

Wedges added to fill the gaps, there was only 6 in total going up the hull. You will also see that it looks a lot like a pin cushion at the moment LOL these will be pulled out tomorrow giving the glue plenty of time to set.

Gunports to be cut out then once I will finish the bottom of the hull I will get the filler out, Im sure I read that P38 car body filler is a good one to use.

The lines are looking good to my eye

BigGrin Hi Dave

Looking good with the progress on the planking, at the moment she looks rougher than a pine cone but you will suprise yourself how good she will look after the first sanding.

Nice planking Dave, I think it will end up a lovely shape I've only just noticed how many gun ports there are wow.

Thanks all for your comments BigGrin

Yes she has a lot of gun ports, 140 in al which I have just finished carving out, and then have to do again when I do the final layer of planks Blink

I will finish the planking of the lower hull and then do all the sanding in one go I think BigGrin

I have had some time to lay a few more planks today.

Firstly I made a plank bender as previsouly posted on here, one thing to note is to make sure it is cleaned out properly, in my case SHWMBO thought I was cooking tomatos when she brought my cup of tea LOL LOL

Then on to the planks themselves, I found the heated plank bender worked much better than soaking in water BigGrin

So far my planks are still falling in line with how they are done in the instructions.

Thanks for your comments Alan BigGrin

Just plodding along when I can at the moment between lots of early nights as I've gone from 12 hour night shifts to 12 hour day shifts at work. We are now in the final week of the 7 week track lowering project so things are getting a little intense days at the moment Blink

Anyway here are the pictures, gaps are starting to form now as I continue to follow the instructions, they will be pretty straight forward to fill though.

The stern to me looked like it would be the most difficult part of the hull planking, it looks as if I am getting it pretty symetrical on each side by my eye BigGrin I have had to do some fairing tweaking as I go but as well.

Over half way trough the first layer of planking BigGrin

I was given a tip to taper the edges of the planks so they butt up against each other, some of them I did some others I forgot, dont think its look too bad so far BigGrin
