The first and Second Gun deck I install the support gun block in before I did first planking
and I glue the second gun deck .
my fix was to remove the gun support I had to cut hole in the second gun deck to get to the first gun deck
after I get the first gum deck support install correctly the I cover the hole
i did a hack job but by Monday i have it fix

I know maybe it's a little early to ask but looking at all the metal castings in the kit .... are they toxic to handle or file ?
Regards Al
Looks great so far !!!

well I finish the second planking
added all the deck and plank
i.m been cutting out window
I drill small in each frame then cut out by hand I have a sore finger
only 12 more to go
I sanded the haul and painted the bottom white
started working on back end their a lot of casting
should have done by next week the rear end I still have to cut out gun port
i.m thinking of buying metal gun port
by the time I buy the hinges and make the door it might be cheaper
I have mad a lot of mistake but been able to recover most
this part has been kicking my but
attach are some pic so far
been working on this ship for three month so far
be safe and stay home

I would like some comment on gun port lid
i have a lot of the lid do you think it would make the model look tackie

Hi calt,

I would skip the metal lids and replace the with wooden ones.
I the kits also the gun port frames is on the outside of the hull whereas the original contruction it is mostly part of the frames and the gun port lid is equal to the outside planking resulting in a flush surface when the lids are closed. Hope it helps.
