I started to build the Armed Virginia Sloop in 2007, here are the pictures of the build, bulkheads installed, false deck glued in and planking has been started.

After 2007 stopped working on the ship until 2011 due to several moving and lack of time.Here are the pictures from 2011 with the first planking.

In 2011 I stopped working on the ship again, up until February 2015 and working on since, so I finished the first planking with a good sanding and started working on the scuppers, somehow I missed them, then I drilled the sweep ports.

Looks really nice Zoly

I was curious I always see people planing with full ship strips has anyone tried doing it with scale length plans etc like the real ship?

Hi Zoltan,
Nice clean work on the first planking, a good base for the finished second planking. She is looking good.

Next I started painting using one coat of primer and 6-8 thin coats of diluted paint and using Tamiya masking tape.
