Thanks Hoffy, welp the glue kept it from rolling around and I couldn’t see it through my endoscope so had to improvise. Will be in OZ in October.

Progressing a little further. Still need to paint the copper color black on the captain’s quarters. Added lanterns, anchors and above deck cannons. Thought it needed some cannon balls. Since I reload shotgun shells and the 71/2 shot was perfect for the cannon balls I decided to go
with it.

On Facebook the ZHL page, some of the pictures show it with one level some with two levels. Don’t know which one might be an earlier version.

Given mine is the 2019 version I guess mine is ok as is well that's what going with, I see you have no gun rigging as yet but placed cannon balls is this the finished state or have you not yet decided? I have recoil ropes on my guns wasthinking about block and tackle also not decided yet as the locks will need to be small and deck could get to clutter.

I had thought about recoil ropes and though it is not off the table I’m not sure that I will add them. The rigging alone is going to be a big challenge for me.
