Great job with the timbering (think that's a real word) if you hadn't shown the process I wouldn't have known
Thanks for sharing

Hi all here is todays efforts. The rear galleries should be open (in fact even on the boxart they are open) so I've cut them out(very nail biting as one slip and I could have ruined them) now I just have to do the floor on the 2 galleries.

Hi all here is the next update, I wanted to add some detail to the cannons which can be seen so, after a great suggestion from a member elsewhere on how to make them I made some eyelets for the tie down ropes.

Gold plated cannons! Nice, Ken! Clever idea on the tie-down loops as well. That was a good tip. I can't imagine how many you have to add to the hull sides for each one of those. That's got to seem like a daunting task.

I've settled at my Dad's place temporarily. Parts are ordered for my 1/1 scale model so I can stop borrowing my Dad's pickup. Since I've traveled north there has been plenty of work to choose from  and I'm confident I'll finally be employed for the first time in 2 1/2 years since quitting my last job. The job market down south is just stale and is drying up it seems. Unless you're in your 20's, of which I am no longer lol.

Hi all here is the next update on this.
Made a little jig for putting the tie down rings in the same place every time.


yes I know I've missed some painting on the front of the decks but will sort that soon.

Hi all well this kit comeso with no anchors for the boats so I've knocked some up, also there are no oars, I've checked a few builds not of the heller kits and they don't seem to have any either, were they stored below decks or should they be there.



Sorry my build rate has slowed so much, but I get some done when I can fit it in and am not feeling too knackered.

Hi all well I'm back on this but with a change of attack, it's now going to be a water line model, I didn't like the ships boats on the deck (take up too much space and I don't believe the ship would have operated like that) so it will be towed along side something like this.

Hi all well I've detailed up one of the ships boats (I suppose that means I will have to do the other one now)here's the before

Put the bathroom sealant on and started painting the tops of the waves


Loads more wave painting to do.
I've removed a couple of the guns to load the supplies into I understand they used some sort of pulley system from the spars to load the supplies with and I want to depict that has anyone got any detailed drawings of how this was achieved.





I've only used one of the port and starboard anchors, I'm hoping the other two are spares, I can't imagine they used all 4 anchors or am I wrong.

Hi all well I've finally finished painting the waved (That's a lot of water) not sure if it needs more colour, I'm trying for the dark brackish water of a harbour.
