Now, this is going to be an interesting log. Thanks for taking the time to post your work. Very realistic beds. I like 'em.

Very detailed work Brian, Looks like you have a very steady hand. Is there anyway to go back and open that cabin door and maybe see in that way?

I know you said a problem will be coming up, but right now I can't see it. The build looks great to me.

Brian,
it seems like you are right on track. Yep, the push nailer is not the best. You found a logical workaround. the thing about wooden ships, is that it "is" an art and a craft. You are not gluing pieces "together" you are making the pieces by hand. this is what makes two models the same be diff from each other. You are installing your own taste and personality into it.
Even though you are far into your planking, If you have not done this, I highly suggest it: run hot water from the sink onto your plank for about a min or two. While you are running the hot water on the plank, then take your hand(s) and start to carefully bend that plank while at the same time holding it under the stream of hot water. eventually, you will have a nicely bent plank and when it dries (since I am slightly impatient), I use a hair dryer to quicken the process so that I can mount that plank and move on to the next. I actually have a video on all of these things that I do, but I am NOT a movie star, nor do I look like a movie star. It is what it is. the link to my videos
are here: www.shipsofscale.com/videos/
Video #7 shows the hot water - that is if you can bear looking at me. I was like half to my senses when I did this - the Admiral was doing the video of which I was more concerned about her doing it right than me doing the tutorial. Complete distractions !!!!
Oh well. Just take a look and let me know what you think.
