Thanks again everyone for your kind and encouraging comments Smile

As usual, a quick step-by-step update about the current state of my build. I think I've now managed to finish the visible details on the middle gun deck for the cut out section.

I had the grating in place already, so the next step was to build the upper part of the fore capstan, which I build pretty much the same way as the lower part...

To make the flat cone shaped top of the capstan, I made use of my stand in 'lathe' and table sander.

I mis-calculated the overall height on the capstan and had to alter the tip of it so that it'll fit in place and not touch the floor of the upper gun deck. The perspective of the picture implies for the capstan to be way too high but it should fit... I'll soon start planking the upper gun deck so i'll find out in due course.

Furthermore, I added some nets, more posts and pillars. (As a reference I'm still using the book mentioned in an earlier post)

I also added the wall of the galley. I wanted the simulated hinges to be brass, but they didn't stand out much so I painted them black. The galley only has two wall in an L-shape. I allowed myself this little cheat here as the third wall wouldn't be visible at all.

...and, at last, the cannon balls. That should do it for now and I can now start installing the upper gun deck, finallyLOL
