Hi Everyone

Here's some progress for July and August 2021;

* Planking the forward parts of the hull, planks need to be smoothed and filled to emulate plating, not very easy with the flare, curve and slope of the bows...Blink

* Preparing forecastle deck, windlass, anchor chain guides. They may be a bit oversize so will need to be made smaller...Glare

Regards
JohnP

Hi John,

Just checked in on your build. Looking really good so far.

Scratch building from a drawing is certainly challenging, keep up the impressive work.
