Hi, Ken well I can see you are doing a great repair on the build, I think that when you do a rebuild it takes a lot of skill which I can see you have, thanks for posting.

Hi all well I'm on to the gunwale covers (why they are called that I dont know, they cover nothing have nothing to do with guns and what wale's are I've no idea) anyway I've made a jig to get all the holes in the same place.



Drilled all 52 holes



Gunwales installed





Bit annoyed with the instructions (and myself for not checking) they tell you to drill 52 holes @ 1.5 mm but the brass wire they supply is only 1 mm

Hi all finished the planking on the bow (those little bends in the 2x2mm sapeally were a real pain in the bum, that is the 12th set of those, they kept snapping when trying to bend them) I finally managed to get the bend by soaking them in boiling water then giving them 2 mins in the microwave.

Ken

Some of those wood batten shapes you are asked to make in kit builds can test the patience. Your perseverance has paid off though with a nice looking result.

I made a simple jig to keep the ribs the same distance apart and to keep them perpendicular to each other 










Made the cats whiskers too.

I know I'm jumping ahead a bit (well quite a lot) but I thought it might be interesting to add some of the deck furniture.







I made another little jig for the covers for the hatch as there are a lot of them and they all need to be the same.

Ken

Nothing wrong with jumping ahead a few stages. At times it relieves some of the monotonous parts of the built and keeps your interest going.

Just need to check adding something to earlier does not back you into a corner on some of the earlier stages.

Its all looking very good.
