Hi Anja,
I've been following your build log with interest as I am working on Corel's Half Moon as well. Your ship looks very nice.
I have reached the point of my build where I am starting the 2nd plank layer on the hull, and am having trouble understanding the instructions.
The instructions have the second planking starting below the gun ports but say to sweep them up higher at the stern then the first layer of planks. No matter what I try I cannot get the planks to lie down like the drawings. I thought I would ask how you resolved this problem on your Half Moon.
Any assistance is appreciated,
THX

Hi Anja,
or anyone else....
I need to know about the deck planks for the Half Moon.
Material supplied is Mukali 0.6 by 5 mm .
What color is the Mukali?
TIA,

I'm pleased to see that your log on Halve Maen is up and running :D You've done some very nice research work for your ship and your documentation photos look excellent. Your planned methodology for modifying her sounds great, and you can take all the necessary measurements and re-scale them for your model using that side profile of the museum model. Or if the museum has line drawings for their model, you can enlarge or reduce it to the scale of your model :D

Goodluck and I'm looking forward to watching you build this beautiful ship :D

Mukali wood comes in a variety of colours. The following link will give you an idea: https://www.google.com.au/search?q=muka ... kfIze18%3D

Sorry for the size of the link, blame Google images for that.

I think Anja gave up building her Half Moon. It's so sad :(
