Well its time for a new project. I’ve had this model in the box for a couple years, bought it off eBay at a bargain price. Started by placing all the ribs in place making sure they all fit well and trimming where needed and then gluing in place. Followed by making sure all the deck pieces fit perfectly and then gluing them in place. And off we go

In order to start planking I needed to know where to stop at the bow of the ship so I needed to fix the front doors etc and do a little planking of that deck first. While I was making doors I decided to make all the deck doorways. I glued 2/2 strips to a thin piece of plywood and stained them red also cut out door frames from beechwood and painted them yellow. Hinges and door handles were constructed from leftovers from other models ( never throw anything away) I think they turned out ok. After I was done I discovered that the kit provided doors. Maybe should read the instructions more! Also made sure the masts fit correctly into their places. Now ready for the first planks D550FE8B-D7A1-4B30-966F-AD7B82AB56A1.jpegA553EE9C-0853-4840-8232-C64E1B29DB39.jpegD7581496-0FED-48FB-803E-015F826D77AD.jpeg1FC5FA3A-31FC-48F9-8E30-89720F5ABD41.jpeg43E6CE21-6DDA-4EA1-A226-0CEC2E141352.jpeg1FA6DA32-6A05-418D-BF1F-6C59C266014C.jpeg4B865CF1-8285-4808-BD54-5514485D0E23.jpegD899B5FD-55F3-4CFE-B454-E0B121A6DA95.jpegB24E572A-83D3-469C-B2B0-ECC5B7A70670.jpegCC36A0FA-9F55-41D7-8FB7-13D7FCA9389F.jpeg7EB62915-613F-46E1-9B99-62F5CDF1EC01.jpeg

As Always the first plank is always the hardest. Corel Has notches showing where to leave a gap between the planks in order to accommodate the openings for the guns and you put the first planks above and below and fill it in laterally has notches showing where to leave a gap between the planks in order to accommodate the openings for the guns and you put the first planks above and below and fill it in later C18B58E1-342E-4B98-9A59-6372A3D73678.jpeg8C2E9FAE-9ECD-49FE-8012-BE56A84B528B.jpeg4687D8FF-A9EB-4019-9D4A-377F37FE2D82.jpeg

Very nice start. I spent a long time building this same Corel example - sure brings back memories
I will follow along as well - This kit is a bit too expensive IMO - good find on Ebay !!

Cheers,
