Tonight had it's mishaps so decided to stop before anything else goes wrong.... Started sanding and fairing the hull when my mouse sander decided to go out with a big bang..... now have to shop for another Blushing Blushing. Sanding arm put into action and got lots of exercise...BigGrin BigGrin Then, being the clumsy oaf that I am managed to knock off the small stern piece, luckily it didn't break so will be easily put back on but will leave it until I've got the hull finished... A break now as tomorrow I should get the next issue of the SOTS so will be working on her....Cool Cool .. Progress so far with the hull......

Regards

Alan

BigGrin Hi Alan
those ears are notorious for breaking off I don't think there's any builder on here who hasn't broken at least 1 .

Finally managed to finish the balsa infills and rough fairing and sanding..BigGrin BigGrin Fine sand will be done when I get to the stage of planking the hull..Cool Cool ... Now going to move onto the decking and as previously mentioned I am not going to use the decking provided, to me the scale is to large at 5mm, have decided to use Tangy strips of 4mm x 0.5mm. Still not to scale but a lot nearer... Blink Blink

Hi Alan!
Nice work, well done! The infills will help you with your decking.
But- do you have your own balsa forest? BigGrin

Small update tonight..Blink . Have made a start on the decking, first giving the decking strips a coat of danish oil... when dry decided to see how it would look using permanent marker to simulate the caulking, wanted to see how much bleed was likely to happen, not too much am happy to say... Now ready for a fine sand followed by a final coat of danish oil... Will tackle the treenailing a litte later.... Am pleased with how it's looking.... Cool Cool

Regards

Alan

Hi Alan, nice looking effect on the planks there.

A few builds on the forum have mentioned using Danish Oil on decks etc, does it have any ill effect if using PVA or superglue to glue onto the oiled wood?

Thanks for looking in Robin.... Haven't come across any issues so far using danish oil. I try to be careful in applying PVA, try to keep it off the oiled side of the strakes. I only used the Danish oil on the upper face of the strake, leaving the underside as is to ensure a good bond with the PVA.... Hope this answers your question...BigGrin BigGrin

BigGrin Hi all
The Danish oil will not cover glue seepage or splashes so it will show , so what Alan has done is a good way to prevent this and after its dry more coats of oil can be added to get the required colour. Nice work Alan
