After planking the poop deck, the quarterdeck was planked.

Now you can see the framed main deck and forecastle deck with the hatch combings and gratings.

Railings were added at the fore end of the quarterdeck. The paintings were supplied in the kit as printed sticker paper that were simply peeled off a paper backing and stuck onto the railing.

Going back to the quarterdeck rail, additional details were added which included a handrail and the stairs had sticker paper paintings added to them.

Some work on the stern transom and side galleries. It should be noted that Portia's plans show cherubs over the top and bottom of the side gallery. My skills were not good enough to carve those complex figures so the kit included an alternative, simpler side gallery.

At the forecastle, a railing was added on the aft side. Sticker paintings were added on the forward bulkhead, catheads were added, and the head rails were added.

I'd give my eye teeth for this kit, Bob! It's the only one of your I don't own.

I can't help you with a kit but I might be able to help you with the complete set of plans, which includes all of the frame drawings, all of the parts drawings, the deck drawings, the practicum on how to build it, the photo Cd with all of the photos I took of the prototype when I built it, a complete wood list which includes the dimensions of all the billets and stripwood, a complete parts list, the image files for the painted frieze and other painted bulkheads, and even the CAD parts files so Mike could laser cut the parts for you both. Interested? If so, email me and we'll work it out.

Take care,

Bob

She is a great looking ship Bob and would be a compliment to anyone's collection. I have never had the chance or fortune to use boxwood yet but it is a fine looking wood. Watching this makes me want to open the Patrick Henry box!!! I'll be around to watch for more.

Hi Don,

I'm sorry to say that I don't produce the Patrick Henry any more. I sold my laser cutter months ago and do not plan to ever develop or produce kits again. Sorry.

Take care,

Bob, I bought a kit off of you already but haven't built it yet but watching this build log makes me want to get it down from the shelf and start it. Just this morning Mike sent me all the pictures he had of his build so now I am really getting inspired.

I've got plenty more pictures of my former kits Don and will be posting them over time. I'm always inspired by seeing other people's work, just wish I had their skills :D

We're in the final stretch now.

The kit came with several resin castings for the figurehead (a left side and a right side), the cherub surrounds around each gunport, and the stern transom carvings to name a few.

The painted frieze was printed on sticker paper so that it could be peeled off and stuck to the side of the ship.

And last but not least, the model was mounted on it's kit base using resin cast crowns that were included in the kit. The crowns had jewels glued on them first which were also included in the kit. Since it was meant to be built in the Admiralty style, only stub masts were installed.
