Part 2 -
I've spent all week after work and this long weekend to finish the second planking..to say I'm relived is an understatement, I'll spent some time carefully sanding and shaping the hull over the next few days. Part 1 of the planking was on the starboard side, I'll now continue on the port side of the hull. I've approached this in a different way from the magazine and I personally think its the better way. I was working up till 10pm last night so the picture came out a little yellow, so I've adjusted them in Photoshop, that's why they look a little washed out.
Also a new graphic for each week (trying to keep things fresh) showing a percentage bar and figure in % of where we are on the build. The figure is based on a percentage of 140 (Issues) and the bar may not be totally accurate, it's only for a quick visual guide to the progress of my build/Issues.
Well that's it for the bulk of the hull construction, I'm not sure where we go from here regarding the bow resin part or the bow and stern porthole section that are still needed to be built up...I will getting some Auto Body filler from Halfords to use for any gaps that may appear during sanding, I have a procedure in mind regarding the hull but will wait until further on in the build.
Any updates I have after sanding the hull I'll add to the next Issue..Issue 35
