Hi eric61 and thanks for the tip and definitely one to keep in mind, at the moment i dont have any concerns about the nails as i do intend to double plank the hull with walnut and will be using an alternative means to hold those planks on which is 0.5mm veneer.
cheers

Merry Christmas Steve.......
Glad to see you back on the build. :banana-dance:
Know what you mean about misplaced tools. But no worry, when you are looking for something else, you will find just where you last put them..... :handgestures-thumbup:
Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
Cheers my friend

Nice job on the gunports. Im not very experiened with multiple levels with gunports. But i can tell by photos it looks like a job i would smoke a cigarett every 10. Minute. Especially on the victory with so many cannons. It must feel like when tying ratlines in the eternity :lol:
It is not a job i would enjoy to do!
But you did it and got a good result :)

I am not familiar with sods law. I know about Murphys Law. sods must be an acronym for something ? BTW, I don't want to cause this to go off-topic, I have to maintain an example here ! LOL

Thanks for the kind words Seadog hopefully when i get back home again in feb i will have some pics to put up i should have the first lot of planking finished by the end of feb and have the hull sanded ready for the second layer that i will be putting on. I am going to use a Walnut veneer for that which is extra that i am adding to the build.
cheers

Walnut planking, do you know what size you are going to use.

Hi Seadog
If i remember rightly they will be 5 mm x 0.5 mm i bought them over a year ago but think that is the right size, i am also going to build one of the cannons to get an idea of how they will be once i install the decks so they are lined up properly.
cheers
