Welcome to SoS Reggie,
You are here at the right adress for such questions.
I can not answer your questions because I'm a rookie myself... :)
Your kit is impressive.
Is all the wood so individually wrapped?
Your planking is great,nice and clean.
Keep posting and we enjoy.

Welcome Reggie :D .

This is really a nice ship.

To help you with the 100 holes in the deck I think we need a better pic.
It is difficult for me to see what you exactly mean.

Good luck.

Wim

Hello Reggie,

Welcome tot S0S.
It's indeed a very nice looking galley. Seems like a lot of work?

Looking forward to your progress. Have fun with the build.

Hi Reggie -
WOW - now this is an awesome kit !

I wish I could see either the plans or a portion of the instruction manual so that I can see a little better what is needed here. It can be daunting task.

I can understand your hesitancy as I am sure that you want to make all those openings the same. Perhaps if you had some plain masking tape. Maybe you can lay the masking tape along what seems to be the upper wales. Then I would pencil in or darken the area of each hole. I would start with a small drill (usually called a pinvise) and start your hole that way. I would not use a power tool at this point.

Let me know how else I can help. Popeye might have an idea too.

Don't give up.

Hello,

With the additional info of Donnie and his remark about the masking tape I presume you have to drill tho holes for the oars.
Then masking tape is perfect. I used that during the build of the Nave Egizia.
First I made all the marks on the tape, then I placed the tape on the hull and you can start drilling.
See the picture:

Good luck :D

I appreciate all the help ! This is really mostly not that difficult a model to do.It's actually a lot of fun because it is so diiferent . It's just there are difficult parts it needs a lot of very accurate work and you need to put up with making 59 or 120 of each part which gets a bit old . I found you have to be very careful with the sanding of the second layer of Walnut it is only 1x4 mm and I hand sand and sanded it through and had to remove planks and redo them .
I am doing the Drains they are very small and shaped like 2 U's UU . I Love all the ideas . I will have to post the plans and the directions ( hard to understand at times )
I Like the idea of using Masking tape I use Masking tape when I install electronics and Control boxes in real Boats . I trace the pattern with Carbon Paper onto the hull and carefully cut it out . These holes are very small about 1/16- 1/8 of an inch wide .
I'll take some more photos and post ! Thanks again ! I'm sure anyone on here can build this Model .Your Models are way more Clean than Mine is .

I just wanted to mention as far as the wood goes only the wood oars are in plastic cases . The other wood is in plastic bags in the box and has rubber bands at each end . Also there are 3 inlayed pieces for the rear deck and the sides . The delicate pieces are kept together with larger pieces and the plans are laid out in numerical order . You build Step By Step in order or you could get into a mess . I actually had to number the frames with a pencil to keep track of the over 100 pieces and sand it off as I installed them .Some of them didn't fit right and had to be modified .One thing about this model you have to be careful you don't make a major mistake that would be difficult and near to impposible to fix without starting over . My Rectangular inlayed squares for the rear deck were to large so I had to modify the Layout . I'll Post this later . :greetings-waveyellow:
