I am currently in the process of building a kit mash up of 2 of these kits. Your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. 20211124_034422.jpg
Here I am joining the 2 frames of the kit and adding some bracing with the 2x5 strips.

Getting frame bracing in and placing a mast section.

So this explains why I hadn't seen the full width kit before.

I do have the basic kit use, never thought of doubleing it up to full cross section.

OK your other post on this subject explains how you got where you are on this.

Do you have plans for the cannon rigging station. I have seen others use such a thing on ships with dozens of guns per deck.

I have been told to help keep the black in color, to make sure you clean the brass pieces well first, to remove any coating or finger oils that may have attached themselves during manufacture to inspection.

Many have said a good wash and rinse in 70% alcohol works well, then rinse in distilled water and dry with gloves on.

I will definitely have to try this.
