    I hope this looks better. Still not finished more coats of varnish on thwarts & strengthening brackets, to cut & fix. A set of oars with throw pins. Rings on stem & transom for painter rope.

    Thanks Doug. Well white on the outside I am afraid, but varnish on the inside. I forgot the duckboards. Here they are being glued to a card pattern. Hope I can get they off. The scalpel gives an idea of scale.

    Hi Hammer,
    "Then paint. I don’t think wood is best at this size, plastic card would be a lot easier to work with. "
    But it wouldn't look half as good Hammer πŸ€” Hat off Sir β˜€οΈ
    Please don't paint it (unless the ship it is destined for demands it).
    It looks so good in natural wood πŸ‘
    Cheers, Doug

    All ribs in & stringer added. Just the thwarts & strengthening brackets. Then paint.

    The reason for the doublers on the inside of bulwarks can be seen. The ends of the ribs tuck in under them & the springiness of the bambino hold it in place. A dab of glue at the keel & on the ends held until painted.
    For scale ribs should be spaced at 1/4” but will look better @ 3/8. That’s my excuse.
    The transom is only thin at the top. It was fitted on a slight angle outwards, so at the bottom almost the whole of the balsa is still there.
