Looks great! It looks like it's at that point where you can look at it and it really feels like it's a ship.

That's really coming alive now Bob.

I assume another layer of planking go's 0n top of the basic shape.

I bet your pleased with the result so far, 'I would be'. XXHRXX

Almost finished the first planking now it's about 95% done. After fitting the planks in place i gave them a light sanding then i put filler in the low spots so that i was not sanding the high spots down to almost nothing. I just have to do a bit more filling and sanding to do as the more i do the more low spots seem to show up XNUTSX
Pity i cant get the Bailey meister to do it for me instead of sleeping while i work x7x
Once this is done it will be on to the quarter galleries and the stern fascia because these have to be in place before starting the second planking

That's a lovely finish you have there Bob XXBRXX
Well done
It will definitely make the 2nd planking go smoothly.
