The lighting I had originally installed comprised of different globes etc, so I ripped it all out and installed some very small leds, I had to make several cuts in the wale planks in order to extract and reinstall the new leds.

These leds were again xmas lights that I bought from Cheap as Chips store, again they came with a resistor.

I also ripped off the partial planking that was on the port lower hull so I could remove and replace the lighting.

These next five pics show the new lighting in place and lit up. The camera seems to pick up and magnify the globes, the lighting has a more subdued effect when viewing in normal conditions.

I just realised in time that I had to rig the Jeer blocks to the knights heads, fore one was not too bad, but the main was a bit fiddly, see next pic.

Next up was the tiller arm to be rigged to the whip staff, I managed to drill a small hole in the end for the small metal connecting piece to go in.

The captains four poster bed I twisted some copper wire together to make the posts and used some fancy little bitts that women muse to make jewellry for the top and bottom of the posts.

The only limitations that are on you, are the ones that you put on yourself!
