Oh dear! I like your shipyard area. I take it that you like hunting as well as building ship models.
Great pogress on that fine old lady mate.
Yes Peglegreg, My second passion is hunting. I go all over the world. My next trip is this May to Africa.

The mizzen mast is completed with all of the running rigging and the poop deck flag pole is installed. The lower shrouds and backstays will be completed later.

Next up is to complete the main mast lower shrouds and back stays.

Hi Vince, I am really enjoying following your build, I have this kit which I bought second hand for £400. I shall wait until I have seen more of
your build before starting mine this way I can see all of the problems you have come across. one thing bothers me is all those castings ,having
looked at them I think a lot of fettaling will be required. please keep up with your great build.
Regards JANET

Yes Janet you are correct. Many of the castings required quite a bit of adjusting.

Hi all,
I haven't posted any progress in a while, but more coming soon. Working on finishing the standing rigging of the mainmast. Rattling of the lower shrouds requires hundreds of clove hitches. The repetition drives me crazy and I have to take breaks. o_O

Don't give up, Vince! Rattling is a pain but it looks good at the end... I am pressuring myself too because I came to this point with Oliver...

Finally finished the standing rigging for the mainmast. All that is left are the lower corner main course lines which will added as the last step in the model.

I am now working on the stern lanterns and the mizzen lower shrouds and backstays.

Hi Vince,
I notice there's gunport lids missing. Are you fitting them later ?
Spectacular model.
Hi Brian,
I always leave the lower deck guns and the lids for one of the last things. When I am accessing the hull for rigging, they get in the way and I wind up damaging them. As soon as I finish the mizzen standing rigging, they will be constructed and placed.

The stern lanterns are constructed and mounted. I used some 0.8mm brass wire for the side brackets. The main supports came with the kit. I painted the lanterns so it looks like candle light in the windows.

Next up is to finish the mizzen shrouds and backstays.
