It had indeed. Weather conditions and interference from some other projects had delayed work on the Scharnhorst for a while. I am happy to report that those are now dealt with and I'm fast catching up back to the original schedule.



With issue 61 the remaining gaps in the second planking were closed up and the hull prepared for filling, sanding and priming.



Issue 62: The hull after said filling, sanding and priming. This took.... a while. For climate reasons (too hot, too wet, too dark) and me being loathe to cover myself in a layer of horrible dust. Also my insistence on doing my sanding with hand tools and me never being happy with the result. Between the first picture and this one two months passed in total. I am now happy with the result.



Issues 63-65: A build stand was built and the first half of deck planking was test fit on the deck. This is where you will be made painfully aware if you built a banana. So far things look ok.



Issues 66-69: Bilge keels are built up from two layers of brass and fitted to the hull. This is why we need the build stand.

And that's where we are right now.
