Longboat – ready for floor planks

Finished the hull. Decided to stain the outer hull, and just varnish the inside. I’ll add a waterline too, maybe. About to trim/fit the floor planks. I’ll paint the top two strakes, the sheer strake and the one below it, Gun Carriage Red tomorrow. Per the plans. This is a Model Shipways 18th Century Armed Longboat model – at 1:24 scale.

View from the bow back – all those frames lined up — love it

Ain’t she pretty?

Planks ready for fitting
