Issue 120 almost done and dusted... More bling to be painted for the prow and a doorway surround. Painted as per the instructions and given a coating of gloss varnish.. When dry the ornamentation was added to the prow and have to say am very pleased with how it all looks... The doorway surround has been stored to be fitted later...Cool Cool

Next task was to fit the fenders to either side of the hull. These pieces required a little bending to follow the hull contours, the trusty kettle and steam did the job very easily. Gave the fenders a coat of medium oak stain and a coat of varnish... Notches were then cut out using a 2mm fine square diamond file....Cool Cool .. Once happy these were then glued into position....Cool Cool

Final task on this issue was the doorway ladders. Instructions say to fit the first two rungs of 18mm, 1mm apart. I have done only one, if you fit two then you will find you do not have the room above the gun port to fit the gun port lid... Cut 8 rungs of 9mm rather than 7 as stated in the instructions...Cool Cool .. Once again, wasn't to keen on just leaving them natural wood so painted the rungs gold and gave a coat of matt varnish.... When dry, fitted all in place....Cool Cool .. Only have the ladder to fit on the other side, this will be done tomorrow evening then it's onto issue 121....Cool Cool .. Until then, happy building all...

Regards

Alan

Hi guys, issue 121 finally finished this evening... Started with the making up of 6 cannon ball crates for the foredeck.. once constructed and to tone them down a little I applied a coat of light oak stain and matt varnish.. Cool .. Final task for this was to fill them with cannon balls, these are glued in place using again matt varnish and left to set...Cool Cool

Next, onto the 6 buckets to compliment the cannon ball crates, after painting again, (didn't like the first effort), I decided not to use the supplied handles and created my own using 0.15 thread. Buckets have all been packed with tissue, tissue was then covered in black paint and left to dry, this gives the appearance of gunpowder and I really like how it looks...Cool Cool

Cannon ball crates and buckets were then fitted to the foredeck...Cool Cool

Final task for this issue was the painting and fitting of the ornamentation for the other side of the prow, all done as described in the previous issue....Cool Cool

Next issue has us back on rigging so until then....Cool Cool

Regards

Alan

Thanks Martyn, the buckets didn't look great with the handles supplied, or at least I didn't think so. Rope handles just fit the period better I believe....Cool Cool .. Thanks again...

Hi Alan, BigGrin

As good as ever, WTG.

Another option for gunpowder is crushed graphite from pencils.
(Carpenters pencils are best, more graphite by the inch)

Used it on a dio I did a while ago, but the method used on yours gives another way to achieve the same end result.

Good to see and share different methods.

Keep up the good work.
Cool Cool Cool
