Gun deck planking (the start 2) (9784)

Laying down the first gun deck planks against a clamped down steel rule.

After a couple of experiments, I decided to complicate life by using 24 scale feet individual planks rather than the longer length planks as called for by the instructions.

Life further complicated by deciding to use 0.6mm walnut veneer between individual planks to simulate the caulking, rather than marking with a pen.

The picture also shows the filler pieces of 'supawood' I formed and fitted in the bow. Hopefully this will help when the hull planking start.
