Zoly
thanks, in the main time I found it on FB. The site you linked is blocked by Adguard saying that it is a phishing site. Did you have any difficulty with it?

G'day John
Sorry mate, you did! I didn't notice that until you mentioned it. :?
I, and I'm sure everyone else, are amazed at the quality of the ZHL kits.
Just between you and me and 'the gate post'. What kit have you got an eye on? :-?
Btw, we are moving in the next few months and the love of my life, told me in not too many words, we are not getting that kit until we have moved and settled in. I think she's right, but I want it now!

Well Greg, never mind what the love of your life says about it, what does your wife say :lol: :lol: :lol: OK I'm heading for the hills now.

As for the kit I've got my eye on, I would tell you, but I cannot get it passed the Gate post :roll: :roll:

Well,I am eyeballing the Ingermanland. :D

Yes I've looked at that one Zoly, looks good and you can buy it in different configurations, ie. half cannon or full cannon etc,

best regards John.

Well thats the front bulwark built up and trimmed to size for the catheads to fit, they gave a nice piece of pear in the kit, but the bulwark gets covered on both sides, so I used some scrap wood I had, and will keep the pear for something more deserving.

The capping rails, I made them a bit wider as after I had planked the hull I did a second planking inside the waist, focsle and quarter deck buklwarks just to be sure they were strong enough.

They supply the tie off bitts in two parts that have to be glued together, again they are milled out of pear, these are one side

After the glue has set, they have been sanded and the bottom of them squared up.

I then drilled a hole up through the base and CA'd some short piece of brass rod into them to help hold them securely in place.
