BigGrin Hi Arek

As for your question,

'Should I thin PVA using water and literary spray? or simply "inject" some in holes just before sanding?'

You can do two things water down some PVA then do some sanding and collect the saw dust. Mix the sawdust into the PVA and then wipe the mixture into the holes then just carry on sanding.

The other way is to just wipe the thinned PVA straight into the holes and then sand, either way will place more sawdust into the loaded holes as you sand.

Planking is finally finished!BigGrin Cool

It was a very slow and sometimes frustrating Mad but rewarding at the end.
I do not think I've put more than 2 planks in a day!

Couple pictures from the progress.














Because all the time I was focused so much on the bow I did not noticed that distance between the planks on the third rib is smaller than on the 2 and 4 rib. In order to minimize this I had to take off one roll of planks on each side and taper them more on the third rib. Then I placed next plank so it would lie down freely without bending. Using masking tape I transferred the shape on to the plank and sanded down to the required shape.












Through my inattention, the final stage was longer and more complicated but I'm happy with the final result.Cool Cool

I actually started sanding on one side but still plenty of sanding aheadBlink









Happy modeling!
Arek

BigGrin Hi Arek

Congrats on the result of your planking it looks the bizz, taking your time has certainly paid off and many would love to reproduce the results you have achieved. the sanding will now transform the planking into something special im sure.

Top work.

Nice planking Arek, I remember doing mine and them planks weren't the easiest to shape and bend. You have done yours extremely well. Well done.

Big thank you all for kind comments! Blushing Blushing
Instruction isn't really great at this point but with help of this forum wasn't that bad after all.Cool Cool

@magpie1832 - I found that electric plank bender was a life saver to me. I know that everybody have own way for bending planks but after some practice I was able to bend planks in two directions using this handy tool.


Up next, I'm moving up on the bulwarks.
As I mentioned before there will be change to the original plan. Photo below shows the change that I want to do, we'll see what will come out of this. I personally think that this smooth transition will look better.



But first I gonna have to make final windows for the both sides of captain's cabin.

Happy modeling,
Arek

I sprayed today hull with hot water to help close holes after pins and this is what I saw!Crying Crying
This doesn't look good! isn't it?



It looks like instead of wiping out excess of glue I wiped in most of it! Obviously I overused the PVA glue.Blushing
The good news is that after being sprayed glue is getting soft so it is possible to remove with hobby knife. Other side that I already started sanding looks better but still plenty of glue is visible when sprayed with water.

I'm really not sure but I assume that all execs need to be removed otherwise Danish Oil is not going to cover this a nd it will show white stains. Am I right??

Another thing learned in a hard way.....

Have great weekend,
Arek

Hi All,

Last set of windows is ready to fit. This time I made windows before I cut the holes in the hull.BigGrin




I started lay planks on the head rails.

First I made the joint as smooth as possible then started with the planks. Supplied material is long enough to lay plank along the hull and head rails without joints. It turned out that 2 planks fit perfectlyCool









Also I managed to broke one of this....Blushing





In the meantime, I am still working on the glue crisisCursing

As always any comments and suggestions are more than welcome.

Happy modeling,
Arek

BigGrin Hi Arek I tape a couple of bits of polystyrene to the forecastle and pop deck when the hull is upside down so I don't snap anything off Cool

Hope this helps

Hi Martyn,

Thanks for your comment,

I have secured with some foam but polystyrene seams to be a better option, nothing major but shouldn't happened,Blushing especially when people who finish this build warned about this part.

Your glue problem try this,Let the PVA dry completely and then sand as normal until you have a good finish. You can then wet the wood to find if any glue is still there and then re-sand these areas.

A tip during construction is to always have a damp cloth handy to wipe away the excess glue.

Thanks for the tip and word of advise Alan.

Will do that as soon as I finish planking bulwarks. I have already small difference in plank thickness between last plank on the hull that was sanded and first on the bulwark.

I was actually thinking to change glue from PVA to Aliphatic but there is no point in that stage.
