Thank you! Here is some progress on the hull plating of the stern.

And here is the bow and the rest of the plating.

One thing is notice is that the fit of parts is too tight. I suspect the model has been designed assuming zero-thickness paper.

How did you solve the problem of too-tight paper Marco?

Thanks! I had already done a fair bit of sanding on the hull frames, but still ended up having to use a few filler strips. It's something to keep an eye on for the rest of the model.

Here is some progress on the decks and bulwarks. The shipyard will soon close for the year!

Happy New Year! The shipyard is open again. Straight into some detail - bollards and anchors.
