BigGrin Hi All

The replacement parts have arrived so the stern bulwark capping's have now been added and this months build commences.
The hinges have been added to the rudder and the bow railing added as per the instructions, Im currently cutting out the rubbing strips as needed for the metal cannon port surrounds and then i can finally get some varnish on her. More soon.

Regards

AndyCool

Hi Andy,
Just looking at your post and I must say that the colour of your planking really dose give a great appearance top work again, as with the rudder,looking at the Bow Railing did you cut all of them by hand.

BigGrin Hi Trev

Thanks for looking in and your comments.
The planking is the bare wood with around 4 /6 coats of Danish oil [ Natural] but its a little too shiny so will be toning it down with a coat of Matt varnish.
As for the bow railing there all cut by hand from the supplied 4 x 4 mm Ramin supplied there are still 18 more of the top section to cut that go along both sides of the bulwark capings on either side at the bow but i will be using pins and drilling holes to fix these in position.

Regards

That bow railing detail looks fantastic. Very consistent cutting of the tapered tops to the posts - do you use some sort of jig to get this so exact?

Happy modelling

BigGrin HI Tony

Thanks for looking in and your comments.
I dont use a jig of any sort I just cut them by eye with a safety razor blade, it works pretty well most of the time but i do get the occasional cut wrongCrying Blink LOL

Thanks for the update on those rail posts.

You must have a very keen eye (wish I did) as these are simple brilliant. I cannot even seen to get the 4 sides of one post correct let alone half a dozen.

A beautiful build you have there - many thanks for sharing

Happy modelling

Tony
