Hi all these cannons are a bit tedious but I've done a bit more, not happy with them, they still don't look very realistic (each one is less than 1/2 an inch long, well the carriage is anyway), so I can't do much with them but I'm wondering weather the decking from the 1/72 revell flower class corvette would look good stuck on and stained what do you think.

Hi Ken

If you want to try the veneer route I've got some hull strakes left over from the DelPrado Bounty kit which are almost mahogany in colour, if you'd like a sheet let me know and I can send it on to you. You wouldn't need to stain it, just clear varnish would give it a good finish.

Hi all well i know I've not touched this for a while, Pam just snapped the fore mast, apparently she was just getting the dog a treat  (the bag with the treats in was on the table with the kit) my fault entirely, she is so upset I'm more cross she even tried to, that's what I'm here for to get stuff, trouble is she thinks because she can make it to the loo and make a cuppa she can do anything, I love her to bits and can't wait for her to get better. Anyway when I do get back on this that will be the first thing for me to takle. 
Ps thanks but I am going to stick with how the cannons look now. Again thanks for the offer.

Right after some good advice I may well get started back on this, I've just bought these 3 books

So hopefully after a good read the rigging won't be sooooo scarey.

Well done for picking this one up again.

It was coming along so well so a pity not to finish it.

Hope the rest of the build goes well.

Hi all well I'm back on this but with a change of attack, it's now going to be a water line model, I didn't like the ships boats on the deck (take up too much space and I don't believe the ship would have operated like that) so it will be towed along side something like this.

Hi all well I've detailed up one of the ships boats (I suppose that means I will have to do the other one now)here's the before

Put the bathroom sealant on and started painting the tops of the waves


Loads more wave painting to do.
I've removed a couple of the guns to load the supplies into I understand they used some sort of pulley system from the spars to load the supplies with and I want to depict that has anyone got any detailed drawings of how this was achieved.





I've only used one of the port and starboard anchors, I'm hoping the other two are spares, I can't imagine they used all 4 anchors or am I wrong.

BigGrin Hi Ken the use of the anchors all depends how fast the tide was flowing, four if it's really bad and two for most tides. If you check out my wasa build it shows the lifts for the ships boats which was also used for loading stores Cool

Hope this helps rgd Martyn
