Hi everyone.
It seems that this model is fashionable in the forum so I will collaborate with my progress to help all the colleagues who are doing it too.
For my part, I will learn from your work.

The first steps do not have much mystery.
In my case, I am deck by deck in order to adjust each deck to the real progress of the model.












Regards

Hi
Thanks for comment.
The stones are glued with white carpenter glue mixed with water.
Place in a bowl and mix the glue with the stones.
After only it is placed into de hull and wait for the glue to dry.
The mixture has to be textured somewhat liquid so that it permeates the stones well.
Drying is quite slow. Several hours.

Sorry for my bad english.

Regards

Hi
We continue with the advances of the section.
The deck 3 is almost finished and work begins on deck 2.
I have left parts open to see inside the lower parts.
Everything that is finished goes with a thin layer of varnish satin applied with airbrush.












We continue ...
Regards

Hi
I show you the latest advances.
Deck two is finished. We begin to define the gunport and the outer lining before continuing with deck one.
The two deck cannons are preassembled to properly adjust the gunport gap.

















There are pending some adjustments of wood and lime, but we are advancing.

Regards and thanks for your comments.
