Another view down the side of the ship of the completed Freeboard planking.
Have meanwhile been doing some research on planking and studying other web based build logs and am going to do the lower hull planking different to that proposed by the building instructions. (Although saying their are guidelines for planking in the instructions is somewhat of a stretch - it effectively says "Plank the lower hull" with some pictures).
I am going to follow the techniques outlined in "Simple Hull Planking Techniques for Beginners" compiled by Dirk Bakker, Greg Booker & Dave Rogers. I downloaded it from the web ("Model Ship Forum" ?)
