Some of the pictures shows that the poop deck and the cabin are planked,the reason is because I was alternating the planking and painting.

Looking good Zoly, the paint work really brings her to life, the red, black and the wood really blend in nicely, I'm sometimes wishing I had painted the RC with red bulwarks, ah well, maybe next time,

best regards John.
