I have subscribed to the cutty sark also so i have something else to do while the planking drys on the Victory. Only had 2 issues so far but here is the progress.









Well cant do any more than that untill the next issue. There are bits with this issue which are not in the instructions so i can only presume that the next set of instructions covers were they go.

hi fozie,yes the bits left over are indeed for later,a word of warning,follow the parts list,they are in order of the build,I wish I knew that earlier,would have made less mistakes,the part list are not numbered,but the building description tell you the name of the parts so you can cross them off the parts list.and only fit the parts from the build,don't be tempted to go a little further like me,I had to buy more wood and redo the decking because I thought "well I've got the wood,why not do it"then when the next buid instruction came,I had to rip the decking off and start again.the instructions are sparce to say the least,but follow them to the letter.on this prodject the parts list is your bible,backed up by the instructions.
in my build the pics show this decking mistake,and why I did'nt stain the second lot of decking.you have waterways around the edge of the deck,in a different colour wood.hope this helps you with your cutty sark.
make no mistake this is a quality kit,and no expence spared,in my opinion is better value then the victory.I might even do a second one,knowing what I know now
p.s.when you do the planking,some of the planks are for futher work Bulwarks and bulwark covers.

a little further info:-when fitting the waterways,soak them over night,because it is easier to get the bend of the bow set,if you pin as you go,the bend is much easier to set,this has got to be accurate,as the stanchions holes will be drilled into these waterways,again the instructions are a little hazy,try to get the lengths of the waterways right.

Well thats it again untill the next parts arrive. Just had to plank the rear deck. I have not stained it yet as im still a bit unsure as to what colour to use as the poster that came with part 3 shows it to have very light decks so will ponder that over for a while.





As always any comments and tips are allways welcome

Thanks Karl.

It said i with the instructions on part 3 to use them, it was part number 29 whch came with the 2nd delivery. They were on the same sheet of ply that the rear deck was on.
After looking at your build, with the front of that deck slightly higher i have got confused as it says in the instructions that they should be the same level as the deck plate, but the front is slightly higher, and im not sure if i should sand it down to the deck level.

I still think the instructions we are getting for this model are poor and could be a lot better.

Well waiting for the next parts to come for this one so back to the victory build.

All the best

Thanks Karl.

Well the next parts have arrived. Have just put the waterways on. A slight misshap when i broke one trying to bend it but it seems to have gone on all right.





Time to start the planking on the deck now.

Happy building folks

Well thats the decking finished almost. I tried an antique pine stain but thought it was to dark so just need to find out what i really want to colour the decking with.





Well thats it for this month untill next parts and instructions arrive so back to the Victory.

Well have made a start on the hull planking. However. the pics in the instructions only show the middle and not the stern or the bow.

So im asking Karl, if he dont mind if this looks right on the bow were i cut the planks in line with the false keel.





Any comments appreciated.

Cheers lads

hi foz,it looking like you need more fairing on the frames,are you fairing as you progress downwards? as this is a clipper,I planked the bow so that it came to a point,by following the line of the deck,you can always adjust later.this is where the instructions are very vague.KEEP checking that you are only using 5mm wide planks,I somehow used 6mm by mistake,and later did'nt have any left to do other work.also bear in mind that you are double planking,and only plank as far as the pics show,other work on the stern follows in the next batch.

Chears Karl.

I am doing more fairing as i go along.

Do you recomend then that i take of the bow planks and replace them so thet they come together past the false keel?
