That looks very tidy. Cool Cool Cool

This is where you get to appreciate the time you spent on the first planking was so worthwhile.

Pack 8


I've started pack 8 by finishing the last layer of planking. One side complete and only the lower half of the starboard side left to do. I'm running into a possible problem. I only have 1 and 1/2 bundles of the planks I've used. There is another 5 bundles of a plank that is similar but darker and with less visible grain.

Has anyone else noticed a difference in the plank colors?

Thanks
Mark

I think maybe the darker planks are for decking so I may be short with the hull planking.

BigGrin Hi Mark the planking for the outer hull does differ but if you mix them up with the lighter ones they should not notice to much. I had the same problem with mine.

Pack 8


Final planking is done. the differences I noticed in the plank color was indistinguishable when fitted. Time for some sanding.

You certainly pressed on well with that one and its looking very nice.

I like those press in gun port frames. They will give a very nice finish.

Hope it all continues well.

Have to say I think you've done a super job on the second planking layer Mark, heading towards being a fab build so keep it going...…. Very well done indeed.....Drool Drool

It is very common with partwork kits to find strips of wood that look slightly different in grain and shade but, in my experience, I've never found this to be a real problem.....Cool Cool

Regards

Alan
