looks like you are making progress nice job on building the decks.

I see you cut out the windows what it difficult to do? how did you do it?

is the section of the stern along the side that is giving you trouble?

Hi Dave, I cut out the windows VERY, VERY, VERY, carefully wit a NEW XACTO No. 11 blade and cleaned them up with MIN SANDING STICKS got from HOBBY LO once i see what you say, I think that part is aceptableBBY still have some cleaning up to do,,,, DAVE ACTUALLY THE WHOLE STERN AREA IS GIVING ME FITS, i think that the stern decoration piece is OK as long as I can paint it properly, hard at this age to do the small areas and do not know if I should cut it like yo showed or leave it the way I cut it, what do you think,,, the main problem is the FASHION PIECES AS THAT WILL GOVERN EVERYTHING ELSE ie, PLANKING, MOLDING ETC., so what do you think i think I will start painting the decorative piece AS it seems OK depending on what you say and installing that in place, NOW THE FASHION PIECES NEED YOUR OPION ON THOSE IF OK CAN PROCEDE. LOOKING FORWARD TO WHAT YOU SAY. Don

the main problem is the FASHION PIECES AS THAT WILL GOVERN EVERYTHING ELSE ie, PLANKING, MOLDING ETC., so what do you think

hum? well what I think is I do not quite know what exactly is the problem with the fashion timber I colored in the fashion timber pointed to by the red arrow. What you do is use a piece of planking and lay it along the hull, once you get to the back edge of the fashion timber you sand it down until the end of the hull plank rests on the wing transom. Let me check the archives and see if I can find a picture of shaping the fashion piece.

Dave the picture in Hahns book threw me off thinking that piece of molding was the fashion piece, the second on is how I see the planking run can bend the planks at the end
