Hi lads.
Just posted some of my latest pictures which includes cutting out the gun ports and the secondary planking of the upper hull. I am soon to start on the lower hull which I must say looks very daunting. I am quite happy with my progress so far and I do have to remind myself when I see some of the builds on here that this is my first one. I would like to use a stain on the bottom part of the hull if i can get my planking good enough. Any help here would be appreciated. I notice the way some of you taper the strips but also use is it droppers ? The instructions does not explain things at this stage very well and I am quite aware it is a vital part of the build. What is the best way to taper strips to ensure that your next strip fits perfectly ? Any help at all here lads would be very much appreciated.

Cheers Alan.
Thanks for the good wishes. Your build is an inspiration and your lower hull planking is simply fantastic. I think I will probably go with a more simple approach like just regular tapering as I think I would probably mess it up if I try anything fancy. I love the dark finish on your build. I realise you used different timber on the bottom end but if my planking is good enough I am going to use a wood dye to achieve a similar result. Heres hoping.

Hi everyone.
Its been over a year now since I posted. How time flys. I have been getting stuck in lately after leaving it for a while. Sometimes I just cant find the time. I am happy enough with my progress but thought I would post and show you guys how I am doing. The standard of builds I have seen from you guys of late are top notch I must say. I am going to attach some pics but bear with me I forget all over again how to post them on here

Hi Neon,

There are some rather nice looking Sovereign of the Seas builds on here, I have to say I think yours is also one of them.

Keep up the great work Cool

Hi everyone.
I know it's been ages since I have posted. Life took over I guess. I have been tipping away at my build none the less so I am gonna try and get a few pics up just as soon as I figure out how to do it again.
