Yeah I've got many irons in the fire... Why not use this extra time to learn another skill, like Shipbuilding?
24. June, 05:06
Tom ...
Yay, got one plank down tonight. Only took best part of 3 hours.... This is like doing a puzzle, only you have to make the pieces yourself.

Half of my time was figuring out the planking plan. Used blue tape to get the length of a bulkhead and then divide it into 9 intervals, i.e. 9 planks. Luckily most of the bulkheads/frames are the same effective length so I think I can get away with very little tapering except at the bow and the "middle" plank.

The bottom plank I just installed is called the "garboard strake" and it's was really a bit of work to shape it right. I think it worked out well except for the bow end. There is too much of a curve into the keel. Man this is a learning curve too. I might have bitten off more than I can chew.

Off now to have a mug of grog... I mean beer.
24. June, 05:28
Tom ...
Wow, this build is kicking my butt. Definitely not a beginner kit as far as the planking goes. Unlike most ships, where you don't see the inside of the hull, here it is very noticeable if the planks don't fit perfectly (or close to perfect) on to the frames. Also being a relatively small hull makes planking even harder.

So I decided to purchase a true "beginners" kit from OcCre: Polaris (OcCre 12007, 1:50) and see how I fare with that. Just having a larger model should make it much easier to start with.

1:50 Polaris (OcCre 12007)
 


There are also step-by-step videos to go with it: Youtube Video

 


In the meantime I'll plug away at this one. It's just going to take a long time to get good at bending the planks to fit the contours of the frames properly. I'm also figuring out that I could have better faired the frames to being with to make planking a little easier.

I'm going to give it a shot. I am not nearly good enough to worry about accuracy, and I haven't built in years, so as long as I can just get it finished, I'll be happy!! Thanks for the comment!!

"I am not nearly good enough to worry about accuracy, and I haven't built in years, so as long as I can just get it finished, I'll be happy!!" >> my thoughts exactly when, last May, I started building again after almost 30 years - I still think that, but I do really enjoy it and I'm glad I got back - good luck, have fun!

Same story for me 3-4 years ago... and I still think that too. I focus on the journey, not the outcome. Do not be afraid to show your work. The feedback, comments, suggestions and technique tips will invariably be helpful and positive.

And Christian, this book will give you an idea of life on an East India "retourschip". The novel is based on the original account of the VOC "officer" on board of the Batavia.
