This will my build log of the Batelina a MarisStella kit. She is a small boat used mainly for fishing along the Adriatic coast. She maybe a small kit but is a great one to build and does have it's challenges

Framing completed next up is to plank the frames and bulkheads. Very little sanding required, all the laser cutting was extremely accurate. Excuse the blue tint in some the pictures, those were taken outside under a red umbrella. I'm not sure how that works either, but what was even stranger was the pink elephant that was in my yard right after I finished taking pictures!! :lol:

I'm along for the voyage. I'm curious what the final finish will be?

Hope you are enjoying the pictures. Was so easy to load pictures yesterday but for some reason not so easy today.

I can drag the files over but it does not give me the option to load them in to the dialogue box

I don'y understand what is going on, I have reduced the size of my pictures to 84 kb and it still is not working. The ones I loaded yesterday were much larger, 300 kb, and they worked.
I did not compress yesterday or today just reduced the pixel size, any answers?
