Another fine build.

First job after the cleaning was to locate the positions of what was left of the cast decorations,
so I took photo copies of the areas that had to have decorations attached, I'm only showing
one but I did do several, this is one of the bulkheads.

Now this is what I mean about showing one thing on the plan and giving you another, big difference in size.

and also with the capstan.

Now for the up side of things, these are the cast decorations for the lower beakhead, I think the top casting is from the other side, as it looks kinda flat to the lower casting, if you see what I mean, my mistake.

Some of the castings for around the quarter galleries were not too good, so I made a casting plaster mould of a good one and cast some more in white metal, which the original ones are made of.

John
these castings are not bad at all (not talking about those which you had to replace) - probably the best cast decorations attached to a kit which I have seen. The next level up what the kits are concerned are the CNC pearwood carvings from the ZHL kits.

John
yes, I can see what you mean about the differences between the drawings and the reality of the kit. Unfortunately commercial interests win!
