Hi all I've decided to do something different with this and it involves this

It flickers just like a real candle and the other one is kaput so I developed a cunning plan so, off with the transom

can you guess where this is going
drilled out the windows

then removed the rest of the window
yes thats right I'm going to RC it, only joking, lighting up the state cabins.

Hi all a small update on this, The transom sticks out past the gallaries on the sides and I didnt like the way Airfix just moulded them flat so I've rounded the edges and reguilded them






also the grills on the prow are not moulded all the way through so I drilled all the holes out.






and I've hacked the candle apart and reconfigured it

Hi Ken!

Beautiful work on those lights, it really sets off the stern a treat!Cool If you have any of that plastic mesh like I had with the DelPrado (supposed to be gratings if you ever did!)BigGrin you could try gluing it to the inside of the drilled out windows to simulate the leaded glass. Also, just in case you decided to add more lamps, Poundland sometimes have a set of three battery powered tea-lights with the same flickery effect - guess how much they are!LOL
She's coming on great Kev, well done M8!

Hi all here is tonights update


















can anyone tell me did the banding on the masts go on the next section too, I cant find any pics where I can see that bit.
Also on the side that is not firing would the cannons on the top deck be poking out the gun ports or be inside the gun port, I think Airfix made a mistake with one of the top deck gun ports as you cant get the cannon out of the gun port as the stairs are in the way.

Apparently not, at least according to Willem van de Velde.

Hi all here is an update on this one. All the guns in place (still got to tie some down) all the closed gunports glued in.













I've discovered that the slots in the grating for the bowsprit tie downs are not there so had to make them.
