I stuck black paper intended for pictures. He worked great since contains tarry supplements. Practically it left like in the original: -) much worse would be to make it alone with false deck

It should be at the beginning but with difficulty. There will be a mess

I glued the second layer to cyjano acrylic glue . After bending wet from times I still glued the wet surface. Water is acting as the accelerator for this glue. Stained wood is becoming coloured to such a colour alone like after putting oil. Such a technology is suitable for applying in elements to which they won't be stained.If we are going to stain one should make it before the adhesive bonding (in case of every glue should this way become which can get wood in) If below 1 mm used the veneer of the thickness I perform the adhesive bonding to glue of the adhesive bonding of the footwear. The same what in the cardboard modelling is used, and what's more there is the entire magic. If some cracks came out I am putting in of not an ordinary wood adhesive (transparent white) and I am grinding silting cracks. Then I am putting varnish or oil with wax.

I plank with the wood still wet {damp}...I find that it does the bends I need a lot easier. I use white glue....I try to wipe up the excess without spreading it and then wipe it down again with a second {cleaner} cloth. you would think that after sanding, it would remove it......I still get a little here and there. I am getting better at it though. I have another build that I am doing called the Gothenborg, which is the only one I've don so far that is stained. I double planked it to be able to stain it..it came out real good.

Hi Leszek,

It's hard to keep up with you my friend.
You have so many builds going on. And they are all beautiful.

But it is a pleasure to read them and look at the pictures. Thanks!

Hello Barba,

A great looking ship. And our planking looks superb :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Take care,
