Guten Abend Leute. In den letzten Tagen konnte ich bei Le Coureur nicht allzu viel machen, aber ich möchte euch ein kleines Update zeigen.

Good evening. I haven't been able to do too much at Le Coureur in the last few days, but I want to show you a little update.

Very interesting interpretation of the ballast platform with the additional two walls at the axis of the mast foot housing.

On this photo I can recognize a part of the second side, I guess? Nice idea

No negaitive comment or critic, but only for the completeness (for other modelers working on this model) I would like to mention, that this additional two walls are not shown in the contemporary english drawings, although it would make partly sense from technical point of view, f.e. because of better access to the bilge etc.)
Here are the excerpts of the contemp. drawings from the NMM

Bulkhead with hatch in the front area, in order to guarantee the mobility of the sliding window, I aligned the really thin strips of the frame on double-sided adhesive tape and then milled a groove with the router. I then did the same with the sliding window. I am happy that it worked and that the window can be moved.

Looking very good - and it is a good feeling afterwards, that you made it moveable.

One small hint, what you could made in addition, which you could make before final installation.
Try to carefully cut or sand away the red marked area in order to make the window bigger (sailroom) - also it would look technically more correct
