Volume VII of my Detailed Guide to Scratch Building Model Ships covers the different types of framing methods used to frame a plank on frame model ship.
This volume covers many special situations that must be addressed when planking a historically correct mobel ship built from scratch. Situations in the upper hull planking, lower hull planking, inner bulwarks planking and deck planking are addressed. If your only experience in planking a model ship has been from building kits, you'll be suprised to learn that you've been doing it all wrong!
