Hello Janos, I thank you very much for your visit and also for your nice comments. I have started the after rails on the Mane deck and have been trying to draw those spirals for the scroll work, I am sure not much of an artiest. May have to resort to scanning my plans, but hope not.Nice, precise work, as always, Lawrence!
Hello Janos, Thanks for your visit and also for your very kind comments. You do have me a bit confused though. Are you referring Lawrence to that of the HMS Lawrence? Thanks. In my younger day I did sail on the super oil tanker Imperial St Lawrence for a couple of years, deep sea, but that was a long time ago.
Hello Mike, Thanks for your visit to my build log. Yes I got a bit lucky with those old columns. They sure would have been a challenge wit no lathe to turn them on.Excellent use of old kit parts Lawrence!! I do the same myself. Have a huge stash of old parts.
Hello Janos, I thank you very much for your honesty, Yes the Belfry top in my picture dose look to wide, I believe this is because of the camera angle. However last night I built the Galley Smoke Stack to the size of my plans and this AM apon checking its fit along side of the Belfry it is just to short. This is the size that Hahn drew it up, but by checking back on his pictures and also on your Oliver Cromwell build he has drawn my set of plans to short for the smoke stack. This I will rebuild later on today. I believe the Belfry top will fit in nicely, Looks like my camera lied.Hi Lawrence
Don't take it as a criticism, just my opinion and I can be wrong here.... but I think the Belfry top might be a bit too wide.
