Here is the current status of the project, next video should be in a few days

I have a doubt regarding the coppering of the hull, should it go up to the 1st wale or be just slightly above the water line?

Copper was expensive, so they just coppered the hull just there where it was necessary - it was no question of beauty, just a technical need.
So only shortly over the waterline (fully loaded ship)

Your weathered look is looking very good and realistic. Interesting the prepared area for the guns with the tracks of the gun-wheels.
Would be very good, if you could explain or show the working steps to get such a realistic surface....
