Thankyou Donnie and thanks everyone for the likes.
Brian,yes I too am looking forward to the paint process.These models, unlike wooden ones have no real inherent beauty due to the materials until the paint is applied and it really can make or break the model.

Kind Regards

Nigel

Just found your new project Nigel. Wonderfull work, it must be fun putting multi coloured rigging inside your model instead of rigging the outside. :cool:

Would be great to finally see a video with all the gadgets at work.

Thanks Brian we have just entered a new 1 month lockdown but would not be surprised if this is extended.

Thanks Maarten,yes completely different change of tack but there is a tiny bit of external rigging:D

Work continues and the checklist is getting smaller before final fill and paint on the hull deck assembly.I have added larger Hawse ports than on the plan to reflect that of the prototype.The Anchor winch is complete as are the details of the forecastle.The kit included moulded rubber to match the number on the front of the bow that is present on the original.I have framed this in plastic to provide a neater finish.

The superstructure carcass was made a while ago but not shown until now.This has been required to ensure it sits as it is supposed to do.I can work on this when the hull is finished as a separate model as I know the two mate together.I have allowed a .5mm gap between the superstructure and foredeck to allow for paint on both faces.Had this been too snug, removal would be problematic to access the internals.

Kind Regards

Nigel
