Building a Gozabune (Kobaya) from Paris Plans – Part 8

The latest on Le Petit Galère from Paris’ Le Souvenirs de Marine. The major hull detail are wrapped up here as I’m getting closer to laying down some paint on the model.

Wasen Modeler

So, I drilled out the rogui on which the ro, or sculling oars, pivot. I used a sharp point to start the hole and finished up using a small drill in a Dremel rotary tool. Because I’m starting to consider painting the model, I’m going to hold off on adding the pins to the rogui until some later time.

Also, I found more structural work to complete before I have to deal with the rails, so I’m putting that assembly off for the moment.
