Looks like you next build might be a "model showroom". Even if you are pinched for room, I still enjoy seeing these ships! great craftsmanship. Have you thought about tossing you bed out and sleeping on the couch? that bed takes up a lot of premium model display space!

I keep trying to convince the missus we should have hammocks to gain some floor space but she won't go for it, selfish is what I call that.

some animals sleep standing up--think how much space for models THAT would save! I can see you standing in front of your house--all your clothes laying on the ground. Then you would have to sleep on the grass-or your car--the car!?, now that is an idea for sleeping. you and the missus would have MAXIMUM room for the model builds then. LOL.

Well I am so annoyed I thought I had some oars over and I had finished them but no, stupid idiot there are 32 PAIRS of oars, not 32 oars, now I have to order more of the steps to cut down for the handles, or I display it from one side only.

easy mistake. very easy. you will turn it around and be done with that portion. the build as a whole simply amazes me each and every time I look at it. what a conversation piece, a focal point to view and examine.Inspiring!

Well I've got to do all 64 oars again, I ordered some more ladders to do the handles with ( ordered more than I needed as I could see them being usefull for other things) luckily I ordered the wrong bits.

 

 

now when you compare them, I just have to redo all of them

DOH! this might be funny a few years down the road, but right now I'd feel like breaking SOMETHING [just not the model].

Hi all well the advantage of taking my boss to have her hair done is it gives me 5 hrs sitting in the car, so I've bought a bag of oars and glue with me so looking forward to hours of glueing oars.

Hi all I've been racking my brains trying to think of a way to do the tassels round the canopy, I cant find any which match the cord I've done the flags on the mast with, so,came up with this.
take a piece of double sided tape and stick it to a piece of paper

tack that each end to a lollipop stick

wind the gold thread round the lollipop stick

Cut along the edge

then glue in place

I think you found a great solution to that problem. making the tassel the usual decorating way would take forever and not give you the "fringe" effect you need. the craft stores do have the fringe in rolls like tape, but finding the scale you need might be impossible? I really appreciate the way you work around these problems. ingenious!

Dun da da da,da its finished
I will post better pics tomorrow but here she is.
I few suggestions for anyone building this, don't glue the trumpets on the angels on the stern till the kit is finished( cant count the number of times I've knocked them off). do not glue the side railings on till the end they were constantly getting in the way making it difficult on numerous occasions, and most annoyingly including the rigging stage, I know you tie some of the rigging off onto it but you could always tie off to the framework some where temporarily.
other than that it is a great kit and all goes together well.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I would like to thank everyone for keeping me motivated on this kit, as without you I would have given up at the first hurdle.
will post some better pic in the finished section tomorrow.
