First layer planking finished and rail supports in place
The rails, which are prefabricated for this model kit, can now be measured adjusted and glued in place on top of the bulwarks. After filling and sanding the first layer hull planking, the second layer planking can be applied.

The second layer planking was not supplied in the kit, so this was purchased separately from the Modeller's Shipyard.
