Hi Alan

Thanks for the compliment and I must agree with you the end result is very pleasing for me. There were several errors and a couple of mishaps along the way, but the errors were all corrected following extensive use of your excellent diary...BigGrin
The mishaps were not possible to rectify so I was obliged to work around them. Bet you can't see them ( but I know they are there! )...Glare

Best wishes
John

Hi Everyone.... A Happy New Year to All...BigGrin

Here's my latest update for Jan 2019.

Issues 121 and 122 refer.

* Bowsprit and associated parts installed. Ratlines were done off the model as it was easier...BigGrin Cool
* Mainstays installed.
* Crates and cannon balls installed on fore-deck. ( There seems to be no provision for cannon balls on the quarter decks. Can any one enlighten me?...Confused

Happy building to All
Regards
JohnP

Lovely work as usual John, looks superb....Cool Cool

As for you cannon ball query. You should have received around 90 cannon balls with issue 46 and a further 55 with issue 53, around 145 in total. You make up 8 racks for the main deck and a further 6 racks for the foredeck, 14 racks in total. That should give you 10 cannon balls to fill each rack.

Hope this helps.

Alan

Hi Alan

Thanks for looking in and the nice comment...BigGrin

Yes, I have all the cannon balls/crates as specified, installed on the fore-deck and main deck.
My query is that there seems to be no cannon balls on either Quarter deck, despite there being lots of cannons parked thereon!...Blink
I wonder if this is an oversight or omission by DeAgostini...Confused

Hi John,

I can confirm there are no cannon ball racks on either Quarter Deck and think you'll find space is rather tight to fit any. You can of course make up and fit racks in these areas if you so wish however, it is not something I did. Cool Cool

Hi Alan
Thanks for your prompt response. Yes, the lower Quarter Deck is a bit crowded, but the upper Quarter Deck has a little more space and I do have some cannon balls left over. So, after mulling things over, I will make up a few racks and put them there...BigGrin Cool
