Very nice job Graham. This is the first time I've seen your build log but I'll be following it to the end now. I especially like the way you handled the making of the cannon tools. Very innovative.

Take care,

Bob

Thanks Bob, much appreciated.
The drawings show the cannon equipment laying around in the boat, but I don't think that is the way any navy works so I made some hooks and hung it on the side of the carriage - all 'Ship-shape' as the saying goes.

The exterior of the hull is now finished; I will not be painting the lower part from the waterline down on this model. Some decoration is placed on the stern in the blue area (it is a lasercut pattern) but nothing is provided for the side areas. I am thinking on it, not sure yet and it can be done later when I figure it out.

Hello Graham,everything just looks fabulous ,I checked out that german scale model flag website on a german forum and by the comments seems like a good quality supplier.

I have just enjoyed reading through your build log Graham, and I've picked up some great tips on boat building. I agree with you I certainly would not want to be on that boat when that gun was being fired,

Cheers Andy

Zoltan - thank you for the follow-up, very much appreciated.

Andy - thanks, I think it's important to share tips and techniques; not only what goes well but also what doesn't and how I fixed it - and there have been a few of those instances, believe me!

I was going to put the handrail on next, but it will not be possible to get the bench seats in as they won't angle in with the handrail in place. So, I'd better put the interior bits in; I was hoping to do this a bit later in order to save on getting them dusty, but never mind.

At the stern first. Extra nails fitted where necessary and the hawser holes are made from a couple of brass rivets painted up -

Next the bench supports and mast base. Measuring up -

Now on to the gratings and hatches. I figure they'd need to lift them up somehow, so I made up some ring pulls (eyelet and brass ring) and put one on each corner -

Now I can get on with those handrails.
