When something is not to your liking, you keep looking at it. Good thing you started over. Looks neat, Henk.After the first attempt to make the railing, I removed it again, because there was too much tension on it, and a slight crack was visible, then everything was filled and painted black, but because I was not satisfied with the result, I removed it and started again because I wanted to see the wood in the railing again.
Attempt 2 is better

It’s a complicated part on the fore deck, but your buildup looks nice, Henk.Windlass
Not quite ready yet, still looking at the large gear to make a canopy as
shown at The surburban ship modeler

@Peter,When something is not to your liking, you keep looking at it. Good thing you started over. Looks neat, Henk.
Glad to hear that my article is helpful to you. Sometimes it is not related to a particular model, but more generally to model building and how certain materials or tools can provide a solution.
Thank you PeterHi Henk, your BN is looking great! I read and follow but don't have a lot of spare time to react on all the great builds on this forum.
Just wanted to let you know that you're making a great modelship here!
Hey Johan,hat windlass assembly is starting to look good
Thanks Henk, much appreciated!Thank you Peter
Nice for stopping by, we met last year in Duizel and I was (and still am) impressed by your ship.)
There are many talented builders here, where a small country like the Netherlands is well represented with their talents
My first wooden ship is trial and error and moving on, sometimes two steps back and a windshield, but good there is still progress
Now that the hull and deck are finished I am still charmed by the model and quite satisfied with what came out of my hands , learned a lot about ship names that I had never heard of before , so everything is new to me
The rigging is a completely unknown territory but I have a few good help lines here (Peter and Johan) where things are regularly exchanged
This is a real finicky assembly: quite a few parts, with preciously little room to work with.
Hello Henk,Hey Johan,
It didn't look as good to me as I wanted
The Samson post is too much down ( too low ) so that the irons protruded above it
After placing the photo and again looking at the photos of all the others builders have looked, and then consulted the drawing (the wrong order...) and looked at it several times, I cut the irons and removed the samson post In the meantime made a new one which is longer, here in the house they understand
this not, but if I get worse about something that is not right and have to look at it, then I will change it
