Your are bringing your ship along well. Were the cannon carriages with the kit or did you make those? Reason for asking is that the single photo from above seems to have the carriage well past/behind the cascabel (knob). Typically the carriage should have ended there as well as the elevation bolsters as the gundecks needed as much free space a possible and not have the carriage intruding there. Of course the inhaul tackle would be there. If the guns were run out for firing they would be tight against the bulwark and a restraining recoil hawser set to take the firing recoil load but I don't see that line. Just wondering. Rich (PT-2)On with the rails which are pre-painted 1mm x 4mm strip. First the straight bits -

Now we need to bend some wood. I measured the deflection of the curve at the widest point and clamped to that. Wood soaked in very hot water for a couple of minutes.

Next are the anti-boarding netting supports. I am now out of CA glue and my local model shop is closed due to the lockdown in my area. Seems it is not an essential business, but at the moment it's pretty bloody essential to me and my sanity! However, I am sure Amazon will come good by the time I have shaped the supports. We live in strange times, eh?
