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.

After installing the molding on the poop deck/cabin and the step I gave it a good sanding with 220,320 and 400 grit sandpapers finishing with 3 coats of matte poly.
