De Agostini H.M.S Victory

First three layers of hull planking have been done, I have found that soaking the planking in water overnight, and then pinning to the hull and leaving to dry gives a nice curve as well as twist to the planking. also sanding a shamfer on the bottom edge of the plank gives a nice tight fit.

The hull lines of the victory are really good, flowing from fore to aft. The camera can not  capture the true beauty of this ship's lines. The hull planking will commence shortly as I have completed fairing the hull.
