    When I first posted a thread under ... a dreamproject.. I didn't realize it was the wrong forum category. So here is my built blog. I will spare you the original introduction as I have made progress which and most of you are already familiar with my project.
    The hull was built merging 2 methods on a simple keel plate from plywood, bow and stern structure bread and butter and hull in between 3mm planks on frame.
    The entire main deck is intended to be removable with a drainage irrigation system of plastic corner moulding (from a building supplier) along top of hull and flush at poop and back deck structure. The deck is made of 1/4" plywood skeletal structure incorporating midship deckhouse. Hull glassed with lightest cloth available after 2 coats 2-epoxy sealer and paint primer followed by final coat except top (above waterline) grey will be applied once I have finished doing any necessary adjustments. There have been a lot of them since I realized many inaccuracies in dims etc. I wasn't happy with.
    Here are photos in the progress (some may have already been posted in the original post.
    More a bit later next week.

    Thank you Ronald for your kind words. Since my first attempt back in 1964 in scale 1:200 of this model in B+B method I have had no other experience except a Billings plank on frame Blue Nose.

    Hi Jock, you did well to create this topic dedicated to your ship.
    I will certainly follow you.

    As for the propeller (sorry but it's a topic of current interest, hahahahahahah) have you already decided which one to put? Is it indicated in the drawing?
    What type of propeller is recommended (diameter, number of blades, other info)?

    Hats Off to a fine scratch built hull!!! So glad to see someone who has skillfully built a hull entirely from wood. No plastic moulding here, only finely tooled workmanship.
