That is some very neat and tidy building.

Your choice of colour also looks very nice.

Hi Walter,
it's nice to see you back posting again.
As ever, your skills are jaw dropping and I can only aspire to being even a small percentage as good as you. Brilliant stuff.

I`m sorry for my slow progress, guys - but family business was more important than modelling lately.

I´m currently working on the chests and hammocks for the orlop deck.
Here are some pics:

Looks really good Walter.

Those tiny parts look challenging but you have made a very nice job of putting them together.

Hi Walter,

Nice work with the boxes, you must have spent a lot of time on them, but well worth it, very good progress all round.

In the meantime i finished the orlop deck.

One idea i had that may be of interest for other builders:

I attached some bluetack on the lower ends of the pump chains - so that they wouldn`t hang in the air as the instructions would suggest.

This way they rest firmly in the bilge.
