I built a wonderful ladder for my Pearl, Clair, and then I found out it was too wide for the hole! Like my daddy always told me, “Measure twice, cut once.” So I said,”Who cares?” and put it in sideways. They’ll have to crawl up and down this ladder, not walk.Just a quick note my friends, work on Nina has resumed. Hopefully within a week or two I will have progress thats worthy of
photographing for your amusement at how horribly I build models. LOL So far its just been small things like a lower stanchion rail
for the aft deck, some weathered oak stain for the decks, and general puttering around. Perhaps yet tonight I might just make up the
main deck caprail before packing it in for the day Anything really as I am not looking forward to building a 1/150th scale ladder lol.
Hey hey hey ya'll !!!!
Ok I got some pics for you all as she sits now. I kind of fell out of the groove of pics as I build so no in progress
of messing up shots this time. Dont worry, I promise to screw up and hack plenty more with this build even though Im
nearing the end. I'll be turning the masts n such this week and rigging for this ship isn't very involved so it should be
easy to completely wreck !!
Oh yeah, first you need the mood music so how about some medieval Rammstein:

I know all this looks grainy however these photos were took at 4X magnification.
Here is Nina with no magnification on my kitchen craptop touchpad to give you another idea just how tiny she is.
