A view through the aft gallery windows, I've been having a clean up and a bit of a dust
off of the Royal William, I've got to get back and do a bit more on her, so I vacuumed
her out and got rid of the bits and pieces left over from installing the beams,

View of how she is at the moment,

these are for the second deck down,
Hello John, after you installed the lower deck in your gun carriages may I ask how you fastened thin to the ships decks, a couple of nails or a small wood screw or did you glue thin in place?
Regards Lawrence

G'day Lawrence, on the lower deck I glued them in place and also put a long pin down through the sides of the carriage, see pic below,

you can see the pin between the X,s, on the upper deck I will probably glue a small block of wood
under the carriage to fix it with glue to the deck,

best regards John,

Hello John, Thanks for your great ideas, they are very helpful. Now I can start the task of building 24 gun carriages.
