A short update as to what is happening with this build for all who have been patiently waiting. Good news is my present project is now very nearly complete whereupon I can get back to working on this girl through to completion. Should start on her again within the next 2-3 weeks and will be updating on progress as we go along... Really looking forward to getting back to her.....

Regards

Glad to see you'll be starting her up again soon. Look forward to it, may inspire me to blow the cobwebs off mine (literally ).

I know its been a long wait for those following this build but happy to say I now have the chance to actually move this build forward... So, its onto issue 123, this one proved to be quite long with a lot to do. Issue started with the painting of some more bling and adding this in place, including the lion sitting on top of the bowsprit, this I thought looked really neat perched the way it is. Fitted the 2mm brown thread around the lion and superglued into the bulkhead above the doors.

Next moved onto constructing and fitting the 3 crosstrees and flagpoles, mounting these on top of the masts. Made up the futtock shrouds, fitted these and set about adding the ratlines. Fitted more stays to finish the session off...

Have to tell you, it feels good to be back working on her....

Regards

Alan

Moving forward a little by adding the backstays to the 3 masts. Also added a little rope work hanging from the bulwark belay pins, just gives a little more authenticity... Next up is to start fitting the mainsail.... Happy building all....

It's been a while since I looked in on this, it's looking great. Feels like the final stright now should come together quickly
