My next project is a scratch build of a Wianno Senior. Lots of pictures on Google, but had to get permission from the Wianno Senior Association for the build. They had concerns if I was making them on mass or what my intentions were.
They sent me some old faint drawings first which I was able to redraw using a magnifying glass. Then they sent me this PDF which I dropped into my CAD drawing bringing to match my drawing.
It will be built at 1”=1’ the model 25 1/2” length and 8” beam.

Fascinating history on this 1914 Design look it up.

I have not planked a hull before. Read and watched YouTube posts. So now it is time to give it a try.

Planking done and first sanding, some wood filler applied in the cracks/seams. these photos are after the first sanding, next I will use bondo or exterior wood filler for the low areas, then do a second sand.

If you have anything to suggest or add please let me know. I am giving the model a 24 hour rest as some parts were just glued today and will need sanding.
