Thanks to everyone for the likes.

Update.

Cannons installed on the first gun deck, inclouding the deck beams of the second gun deck.
Next, I'll make and assemble the blocks and rigging for the cannons on the first gun deck.

Well placed cannons but I have to confess that the main thing that caught my eye, actually as I have only one really function eye, were all of the precisely placed "nails" everywhere that I look. Well done. Rich (PT-2)

Very nice scratch deadeyes and well set consistent with your precise detailing and presentation. A beauty to behold. Rich (PT-2)
I fully agree. The Deadeyes )Jungfern) are absolutly correct. I had one from the German 4 master Bark "HINCHENFELDE aus HAMBURG" die den 24-12-1923 stranded vorne mein Heimatort "Blokhus" Nordwest West Danemark. Die ganze besatzunf war von mein Grossvater als Capitan gerettet den 25-12 morgen-23 mand- Eine von die Jungfern cam in am Strand. Sorry, I mixed up languages. I had many Years of real dead eyes from a 4 masted German Bark, which stranded just in front of where I was born "Blokhus" Xmas eyes in an extremely heavy Snowstorm at 16,00 h the 24 of Dic. The Ship was totally destroyed, but the whole Crew was rescued of Grandfather as Captain in an open rescue boat next morning

the images is from a training seascion. my grandfather in the front

Really an impressive build with precise detailing and photography. I like the method of making tubular eyes and may try that at a much smaller scale, which may be able to be cut and spread for thimbles. Very careful work wherever I look. Rich (PT-2)

Hi Karl, this is not a shipmodel but a piece of art.
Very nice work.

BTW do you know what the DE stands for before the gun barrel caliber? Guess it is a French abbreviation.
