You still have your photography skills Frank!

I agree about the plan. That is my only gripe about my version of the Pearl, no scale plan, there are schematic rigging plans, but no actual scale plan of the hull etc. I found a Chinese modeler who provides plans for free. Take a look if you get stuck. They are not identical to my kit, but some of the plans are a lot more help than what is provided in the kit.

Hi i have been very busy with work lately, so there hasnt been any updates on the log. But i am done with the first planking. It was a very difficult job because of the thin cannon plywood layout that is 1mm. The planks being used for the first planking is 2.5mm so there is a whole 1.5mm needed to be sanded down. Also the first planking consists of a mixture of hard walnut and some other very soft wood. So i needed to apply diffrent pressure when sanding on the diffrent wood. I will put up some photos later when i have the time.
Thank you for you interest.

That video is awsome. Love the "two steps from hell" music aswell. Max sure did a fine job making the pearl.
Oh! Can i ask you Gemma what the thickness of your planks was compared to the cannon plywood layot sheet was?
It just seems very strange the diffrence in the thickness and i dont see the reason behind it. Maybe i built my pearl wrong somehow or it supposed to be like this?

Great to hear from you Frank.

My first planks equaled the plywood, both are around 2mm so fitted flush, little sanding needed, I think the image shows it:

Both are then to be covered with a second planking of thin walnut veneer.

Hello Frank

Just found your great build on the Black Pearl, I am very impressed with your great skills that you have shown here in your build log, with so very much very fine detail that I do love very much. Great job you are doing on your lighting. May I ask a couple of questions? Did you make your own lanterns or did you buy them and if so from where? With all of these lanterns and lighting on your ship how are you going to power them and what control do you have over them? Thanks in advance, ENJOY.
