This deck had the smaller 24 pounder guns, the cooking stove was to make a hot meal for the odd 800 crew! and at the stern was the quarters for the Officers. When going into battle the partitions would be dismantled and stowed away with furniture etc to make more room for the gun crews. Another three decks to go so next the Upper Gun Deck.

This is really something rare when it comes to model building...and it looks great, very detailed! :)
Thanks Jim for your kind words, I am still jealous of the wonderful models created with such skills from other model builders in our Forum

Fantastic! You're just moving up the ship, can hardly contain myself, more, More, MORE!
Thanks for your encouraging reply, it's strange, I am getting a bit bored now and know when I finish the next deck it will be the last of the gun decks. Creating the Hull sides without bulkheads is quite difficult to create the shapes of the frames. Casting the gun barrels in resin is not a nice job but we must carry on for King and Country!
