Model boat - starting the rebuild

I've been working on constructing some pieces for the deck. The originals broke and split irreparably as you can see from the first two photo's. I pieced them together and stuck them with masking tape so that I could draw round them onto a new piece of timber. 

I've cut them out and sanded them to shape and they're now ready for staining. On the original boat they were a dark wood and would have contrasted nicely to the light wood of the hull/deck. I've also made new 'toe rails' which also need staining.


Your comments are very much appreciated and I value every one. Thank you
