Yes paper or card board for lantarns. Its also written in the description on aliexpress. Its a big puzzle sometimes. They changed a lot in the materials and items and thats not chanced in the manual or the parts you need are not in the kit. Also lot of brass items are replaced with wood that you have to paint gold. But it was a cheap kit and i bought it to get more experians.

Today i fixed the reinforcments to the bow. Sanding together with the Bull number 1.2 and 3 to get a good shape for planking. Cut out the ribs 1 till 11 and glueing them on top. If you can count from 1 to 11 its andere easy Job. It fits needless again without sanding. Rib nr 1 has a hole in it so i made also the beginning of the other part of the circkle it was square as you can see at the pictures. As you can see rib 2 fits great without sanding. Really happy with this kit till now.tnx for watching

hi pat, hope you are feeling better. going back and rereading your build log. you said that you sanded bow blocks with frames 1,2 and 3. how did you do this? did you clamp them all together and sand them? how did you com up with the shape for them? thanks and hope you can help me out on how to do this. thanks terry

Terry as you can see i sanded the edges a bit round so you can bent the planking better around the bow. You do it when everything is installed and then you can take a plank and try if i goes smoothly around the ribs. Infact you have to do this with all the ribs to see if your planking goes smooth without bumps before you start glueing the planks to the ribs. I have send you a link of ocre. They have a lot of movies about planking, sanding and building the ship. Verry usefull. Also about rigging etc.

Yesterday and todays work. Build the frame for the 2 little boats and the 3 standards beside the cratings. Sorry forgot the names . Dont know if its normal after heart attack that i feel a lot of change in emotions. By example have let Go a lot of control and perfection and feel like to have more enyoing feeling. See what the Day brings. go with the flow.
