Hey thanks all
All was sweet with double checking everything but then she has tried to bite me.
As you can see all nice so far except no.16 bulwark is 3 mmm higher than no. 17.
It does not look like it is supposed to be ( input would be greatly appreciated) I'll have another look tomorrow and see how the planking would lay or maybe I can sand it down,I hope the crew off my occre Diana ship are not into funny buisness

Hi guys
Just a top up on the build I had some leftover deck planks from the amati adventure so I planked the lower deck for where the ladders go down and oh boy is there a lot of sanding to be done. I've also started the front bulkheads doors and decorations
Cheers for now snowy 20190906_153601.jpg20190906_095015.jpg20190906_094951.jpg

Hi again
Just when I thought I could have a clear run I have to go bush again for approximately 2 weeks.
So in the meantime I 'll Show you what I have been up to .
I finished the front bulkhead and with it I found a nice curve piece where the 1mm by 1mm goes .I like it .
I'm still putting in pieces for the shape of the hull .
I think I might put more fill in pieces on the bow to bulkhead 4
Thanks to all and I'll be back in 2 weeks cheers snowy 20190913_175059.jpg20190913_174953.jpg20190913_174953.jpg20190913_174947.jpg
