Thanks, friends, for your replies.
Imitation of planking is finished - I made it as always - using strips of foils ( after gluing of strips I´m using hairdryer to heat foil for better adherence ). The hull is still too shiny, now I´m going to patinate it to make a planking effect.

Those materials you use to plank your hulls work incredibly well.
So well, you patinate it to take some of the shine out of it.

Beautiful work. I'm not sure to what you are referring to as 'foil'. Is it possible to post a link to the product you use?

A beautiful hull, both in shape and finish!

I believe that what firdajan refers to as “foil” is similar to products sold in North America as “self-adhesive vinyl shelf and drawer liner” (Google will find it). I am in Canada and found one of the brands in a local hardware store. It comes in rolls and is very thin, peel-off vinyl sheeting on a plasticized backing paper.

I am using it on my version of the San Salvador galleon. Unfortunately the brand I could get locally doesn’t come in suitable wood grains such as firdajan uses, so I adapted the knotty pine finish as follows.

I cut off a rectangle of vinyl about 5”x8” and painted it with a matte medium brown acrylic, but let a bit of the pine grain show though for texture. (Incidentally, the vinyl accepts acrylics very well.)

Then I weathered the painted sheet by wiping on some soot weathering powder, and then just a tiny bit of white powder ditto. The result resembles firdajan’s planking (a bit darker) but is already matte because of the paint. I’ve found that by experimenting with paints and powders, I can get pretty much any wood effect, such as the pale hue of deck planking.

When applying the results to the galleon hull, I used a version of Doris’s technique for simulating the dark caulk lines between the planks. Before applying the vinyl, I painted the hull with a very dark brown acrylic such as burnt umber (not black, it’s too deep). Then I sliced the vinyl sheet into strips, scaled to the proper width of the planking.

Next, I peeled each plank/strip off its backing paper and applied it to the galleon hull, leaving a VERY fine gap between the "plank" edges so the burnt umber behind it defined the edge, just barely. The vinyl is very forgiving since it can be removed and re-positioned, but it still adheres well, although I tacked down a few exposed edges (at the galleon's flat stern for example) with a tiny bead of CA. Nothing has fallen off yet, anyway.

I haven't got to the white lead(?) anti-fouling paint below the waterline yet, but will try to use the same painting/weathering/ technique to obtain the required effect. There will be no darker caulk lines in that area though, since I believe the anti-fouling was applied right over the caulked planking seams, thus resulting in a uniform whitish finish.

Hope that helps!

Thank you, my friends, for your replies

rd2jones: your comment is accurate. I´m using the same technique as Doris, all I know I learnt from her. I´m using well known types of foils as patifix and d-c-fix. My technique is very good visible at first three photos ( taken from my Mary Rose build ) - I´m gluing one strip of foil a little bit on another, with patinating I´m creating a planking effect.

Finally I patinated the ship and make the white bottom of the ship. Now it looks not as a paper model, but like something from Heller or Airfix:šialený: But please wait a while, it will change.
It looks like gunports are too close to watreline - but it si exactly based on plans.
Gratings you can see are laser cutted.

Good to see you're back, Jan. I wrote you a long mail after your last PM a month ago, but I fear it never reached you, as I got a couple of confusing prefab messages. Never mind, your build is great.

I do have a suggestion. I see that you initially build your hull without stem, stern and keel. I understand why, but in this case I think something goes wrong. If you look at the first two or three strakes of planking, starting from the keel, you will see that they all have to end in the rabbet in the stern, called the `streek`. It makes sure that the stern is tightly connected with the rest of the body, both during construction and later. Adding your stern in a later stage prevents these planks to be fitted in the way they should. Perhaps this freehand sketch clarifies what I mean:

We are looking at the back of the stern. The thicker part caused by the planks only partly sunken into the rabbet will be continued in the rudder.
