Penciled in
Left wall progress

Peapod part three

I faired the planks on the outside of the hull, it required hours of careful sanding.  Once that was done I cut the stems from the strong back and removed the boat from the form.

The inside is very scary, because I botched the planking.  Hopefully I can manage to make something of it without causing irreparable damage.

Holding it up to a light accentuates thin spots.

I plan to sand down the high spots and fill the low spots to finish with a smooth surface.  Wish me luck.

It looks really good. Maybe some wood putty on the thin spots? And then sand it down? There are some types that take stain I think?

I'm still impressed.

I don't think the average miniaturist has any idea how difficult these boat kits actually are, and how incredible what you have accomplished with it is! It's freakin' awesome!

You have done a fantastic job so far. I 'm quite sure it will be a stunning boat.
Good luck with the progress!
Hugs, Drora
