I am so sick of rubbish boats on model railway layouts! They have no shape, no detail. You wouldn't tolerate a loco or coach like that, so why a narrow boat?
Anyway, here it is so far. A bit busy with aircraft for clients now, so nothing more for a while.
The engine beds are massive baulks of oak 16"x5"x about 18' long. At the starn end is the counter block, propped up into position, but not yet fixed. And the stern post.
The stem post can be seen above the kelson, the long plank that runs inside the boat to strengthen it and to which the bottom boards are fixed.
Much more to come.
