What We Are Building

WOW ... and this is a just the hull without masting and rigging ...
(picture taken from kit box lid)

BUT ... belive it or not, this is pretty stark compared to what the model will look like after completing the Hull Practicum. For a quick peek, look at my finished hull ...

Bulkheads

Section 1.2

After finishing the hull and reflecting back on where I had problems, I believe that there should be another bulkhead inserted between A and B. Planking this area resulted in a flat spot. Adding a filler block I believe to be very cumbersome, whereas cutting another bulkhead (copy Bulkhead B and reduce in size to fit the space between using plan templates provided on sheet 1) and another notch in the Center Keel will do just the thing.
