Hi everyone.
I started this build of HMS Snake about 10 yrs ago, did first layer of hull planking and deck, and put it in mothballs (prison hulk ?) . Just re-started. Finished second layer of planking, coppering, and paint. Now working on armament (waiting on replacement carronades from Caldercraft), etc. Lots of problems with uneven hull, etc., but hoping to finish, at least as admiralty model, but maybe fully rigged. Here it is so far.

I’m sure it came with a kit, probably this one, but it might have been the “fair American” from model shipways that I built years ago. It works well. I just glued some closed cell foam strips to it to protect the coppering.
