Hi all, progress pictures of the Gunboat Philadelphia, showing the 9pounder and 12 pounder gun carriages and slide dry fitted, the mast partner using the supplied jig and after takeing out the jig, also showing the thru bolts for rigging, need to find small washers for the exteroer thru bolts, also the SHOT GARLAND RACKS WITH HEIGHT FIXTURE glued in place the fisture is removed after the glue drys, also note that I took some artistic liberty by installing the commings at the aft and stern, just looks better, I am getting ready to put the gun barrels and something I dread is the rigging of the guns when that portion is complete will do the cap rails an conentrate on my BLANFORD AND MATTHEW BUILDS, as always comments and critisims wanted ONLY WAY TO LEARN

No critics, Don. Everything looks great! Perhaps...one....small...and not even a critic...The pictures where a bit blurry. If you can try to make them sharp for the next time that would be great, If not, no biggie...will see your work anyway. :p
