With the bulkheads beveled and fitted to the keel, the pre-cut gunport strip is fitted. Note the symmetry port / starboard obtained through the use of the supplied gunport pattern shaping template, see below.

Stern view of the first planking, there are two important points to note in this photo:
First the keel has been beveled at the bearding line ~ this will ensure the overall thickness of the planked model is true to scale.
Second, the planks have been allowed to follow there natural run ~ this will result in small gaps appearing towards the end of the plank (as shown). These will be filled with planks cut to shape called 'stealers' and is exactly as the practice used when building the full size ship.

Second planking begins by laying the wale, then working down the hull to the keel. Again the planks should be allowed to follow a natural run and 'stealers' used to fill gaps.

Second planking completed down to the keel. The area above the wale will not be planked until after the inner bulwark is fitted and the gunports have been lined.
