I had to add some lumber to the Transom to bring the entire thing out in a Curve.
I had to include this Filler Blocks because the Fillers for the aft section didn’t go out far enough.
I’m not sure if I’m going about this the hard way…
I suppose I could have simply shaved the Poop Deck down a bit… 🙄🤔
I am just thinking ahead… I’m sure the Planking will hide a lot of flaws. These ships were constantly being modified anyway, especially this one. It was supposed to have a beefed up hull to better withstand any ice that they encountered. 😲
Currently I’m using a Scribe to puncture miniature Holes in the Wood. I’m hoping to scrape the wood from the other side!
It kind of came out uneven so I had to make a Filler sliver. Then while the White Glue was still wet, I rubbed across it with the 120 Grit, just enough to generate a few Walnut Sawdust to act as Putty. Now the descrepancy is barely visible.
