Thanks Mike when it's got the oars on it will be way too wide for any mantle.

So they can't be stowed? Or is it just your preference to have them out?

No they were just raised and set on the rowlocks, so just the difference of a few degrees, since the sails are down the oars will be up, but that still makes her 15 inches wide.

Hi all thought I would have a break from the rigging so decided to do the steps, they are supposed to have hand rails but they were so fine one was snapped on the sprue and one broke cutting it off the sprue so will have to make a couple out of copper wire

well this is on the back burner again


as you can see from the parts list sprue 17 and 18 say 2 sprues sprue 9 and 9a are listed together with a sprue count of 2 I stupidly didnt count the number of oars on the sprues (there are 16 oars on each sprue) so the 2 on the parts list means 2 of each 9a and 9 (why didnt they list those to sprues separately or say 4 on the parts count, so now I have to go through the rigmarole of contacting heller again and waiting for the parts, this really is putting me off ever buying a heller kit again, I mean are all there kits like this, I dont think much of the're quality control if they dont even bother doing a sprue check on the contents of a kit.

I sincerely hope that you get manufacturer support with the missing parts. Each time I I come to this WIP thread I start at the beginning and go all the way through. My eyes get wide, mouth drops open, and my brain goes to mush! never seen anything like this! congratulations on what you have accomplished.

Hi all was looking at this today and noticed the mast was bent.
[L8xSsTV]
so I thought how can I fix that and a cunning plan developed.
first break the top of the mast off then drill out a hole in the top of the mast and insert brass rod then reglue the top on
 
 
 
 
since this pic I decided I dont like the fore mast sail so have removed it was thinking of removing the main sail as well but my missus says no, what do you think would they have had one sail down and not the other or would they both be up or down.
