Finished one box and have painted the beams white.
Box will be stained oak and still need to put the hasps on.
Also played around with making a few random bales of ??.
Not sure if this would be in any way accurate, or if such a thing even existed.
Was thinking of painting them and tying them with some very thin string or cotton.
No idea what colour to paint them though, or what colour cotton to use.
Any ideas?

A little further along.
Lower gun deck beams in place.
Still need to touch up the ends of some of the beams with white paint.
Notice large gap on left where beams meet bulkheads. May have had to pull bulkheads in a little.
[Have checked, but the bulkheads will not move] edited
Have stained three of the boxes

Next need to plank the lower gun deck walls.
Before planking the gun deck itself, need to make officers' hammocks and a few other bits and pieces.
Basically, fit out the orlop deck.
Looking forward to that. :)

Mmmmm!
I think you may have inadvertently figured out my problem Knut.
Too MUCH time spent eying up the next stage (and dreaming about how it should look), instead of actually doing it.
:rolleyes:
