That’s a bit of a stylized transom isn’t it? Is that for ease of building or does that follow the original design?

The frames structure is looking very good - also congratulations to the modeler - very accurate done
The transom structure was technically slightly different in the original ship, better what is hown in the Anatomy book (page 42)

Yeah we did made some simplifications to the frames, the original one was hard to realise on kits.

Looking very good - very clean and accurate - your test modeler is doing a very good job on the model
With premade nails please take into account, that not all modelers are working so accurate. Especially on the hullplanking it could happen, that than the nails are shifted away from the frames. and if this happens only on one planking level you will see this problem very much. On stern, deck etc. it will not happen so easily, but with the hull planking and wales - maybe
But for this you will have the best knowledge and feeling, how in-accurate a modeler could work on your model.....
BTW: I like you very slight contrast between the planks and the treenails - looking very good Thumbsup

Not only a update day for "the swan", Blandford as well!

As always, thanks you guys for supporting, I've tested the premade nails, indeed, the are some problems, but I hope I can work it out.

The update for this model is nearly over cus the modeler didn't finish it, may be 5-6 more updates and it will reach a end. Our new pliot model is working well and we will make some updates after. The contents will be mianly focus on the new changes rather than all the working process(since you folks already seen it for once).
