Great progress! I’m greatly enjoying the log. Also wanted to mention that your shop has two things mine lacks:

Organization and space!

Looks good. (I CAN find everything I need in my cluttered shop though)

Hi all
I got 1 side of lower gun patterns on today and with the clamps that's all I will do for 24 hours till it sets.
But I realised I can build a stove
(Omg so many parts but fun) just thought I would show a picture

Hi all
Snowy is back from the bush
I just started my planking after cutting out a rabbet for the first planking that's 2 timbers for today
My first 2 days back I put 1 plank each side per day.
I feel she is just too big to be playing with both sides at the same time ,so now I will put 1 up top and 1 on the bottom per day then change sides .
Now I will just have to work out what I can play with while waiting ( maybe the smaller boats)
Happy modelling and catch you all next time
Cheers snowy 20191215_114630.jpg20191215_114620.jpg

Hi guys
Been a while but 2 timbers per day plus work and Christmas slowed me a tad but it did give me a chance to paint the figurehead .I just couldn't handle the knife so I stole the one off the vanguard figurehead and drilled a new hole for it , all good merry Christmas and happy New year

Hi all
After 6 months we have the first planking finished now it's time for sanding the hull and doing a general tidy up before fitting the stern counter pattern and cutting out all the gun port patterns ok all onwards and upwards or in this case downwards to the level, cheers snowy

I finished this model, only took me 3 years. I recognize her parts way too well. I stopped at the hull though and stubbed off the masts, just didn't have the passion and energy to rig her out.

The requested part is also shown (I think) in a photo
