Patience...

I will always be thankful to JDA for introducing to me the idea of sharpening a tube and making these depressions ( and passing on the patience too ).

Are the bung marks just at the plank ends (butts), or did you do all the frames?

A mixture, at for and aft ends of the model there are continuous unbroken rows over frames and in the center 60% on the plank ends which fall on the frame location only.
Each plank was beveled on the side to enhance the plank, credit is also given to JDA for this teqnique and idea.
He is a high level modeler and I only attempt to achieve similar results as his.

Just got back in town and decided to check up on what you all have been up to. First let me correct TimB on the credits he gave me for his planking job. I have on occasion used fake bung holes on some model boat DECKS but not on the planking. To correctly put in all the bungs is way too much work for this lazy builder. If you do it incorrectly someone will eventually call you out on the poor workmanship. At the scale of most of my boats one coat of paint would cover up any work at putting in bungs. Why make work out of a hobby that is so much fun??
Secondly, when you have spiled the planks on a model you aught to want folks to see the work you have done. It would break my heart to paint over it. I realize you can put a light coat of paint and still let your work show but you need to water proof the wood and paint helps. If it's going to sit on a shelf that's another matter. Hey, I get to quit preaching and go back to building tomorrow. jda

Ha, I was wondering if you were ever going to learn how to plank or were just a "Planking Troll" .
I don't know of any one forum where there was planking going on where we did not see Tim B. wanting to know how to plank.....
Glad you finally learned how!

I have also seen brass tube attached to a soldering iron applied to planking for bung holes. Just depends on what look you are looking for.

I also really don't like just marking the holes to have the "look" cause when you really get down to it, the grain line up & color of the plug was never identical to the wood in the plank

So much for the "rivit counters".

Hey Tim,
Your talking about tree nails or "trunnels" which have been used for centurys in full size boat building. (no nails or screws)
Your getting there!
Always be willing to learn & try something different.
Then make it again and make it better.

I am still always milling enough wood for 2 parts cause ya never know when you'll screw up the 1st part.

Just trolling along in jda's thread. He better get busy & post to scatter us outta here.


Pssst Tim, have you made any working blocks yet?

Easter's over and so is Tax Time. However the grass continues to grow. Very little time spent modeling....
The caprail as provided in the kit was 1/32" thick plywood that was supposed to overhang the inside and outside of the bulwark 1/16". I didn't think plywood would shrink that so much but by the time I sanded the rough cut stampings it was way too narrow. I used the kit parts for patterns and made new pieces out of basswood. These were glued (Elmers) and pinned in place and allowed to dry over night. I masked off the yellow strip again and painted several more coats in an effort to cover the red primer.

Next up will be the coamings and some of the deck features. jda
