Days are passing on an on. Got some time to take build a step ahead. The first level of covering is over. It's march end and very difficult to spend time with her. Yet to order some parts for deck fittings from a hobby shop. Planning is to cover her with copper sheet pieces in bottom or maybe apply wooden sheet pieces. It is very tough job to give real look but I am on for it. Probably will apply a second layer Sunday. Then will take the job of mast work.

She is shaping up now pretty well. Deck is there and started second level of planking. Very time consuming job but defiantly it will give very beautiful look to her. Probably by Sunday it wil be finish and then actual challenging work will start.

Wow!
That kind of planking is not easy.
Memories getting the planking to bend, on a cutter, circa 1968...

 Hats Off sir this is just an attempt to bring memories back. Many would agree with that now a days hobby is not be taken as a hobby. It is mainly a toy for elders now a days. Trying to continue all the traditional way of model making.

Wait for couple of days. Will take you through the era of late mr aurora. By making rc of tiny smite from foam sheet. But right now focusing on alert.  Smiley

After reading your comments I remembered about my smites so took them out of my stuff. One is damaged during the transfers, though repairable. The second was partially completed and is demanding completion. Maybe next project.
Another old boat lying for restoration

Krunal: I couldn't agree more with you!

It is like Art Appreciation. First you view the artifact as a whole, then move on to the smaller fine detail. In our hobby, modern times have led to the Instant Gratification Syndrome; RTFs are the rage, and the full beauty of the artifact is lost, only the first quick glance predominates
