Having the gratings as whole pieces will make your build even easier because you can just cut this part of the deck off. Maybe you coud leave one grating out and replace it with a mast or capstan! Ooh the possibilities  %%

Yes, the separation would be just at the side of those gratings for the addition of the "other side".  Oh boy, don't think I haven't thought of those possibilities, stepping a mast, showing it up to the main truck, installing chainplatess bewteen those two cannon ports, installing main standing rigging with ratlines, whip and served proper ship board fashion.  I've built plenty of old ships of the line and have a copy of Lee's Masting and Rigging.  It would add height to the model and I could add the main lower yard.  Yikes... might as well just build the entire ship!!

First hammock installed, folded.  Rail is in with added rope on belaying pins.  Shot inside show aft cannon block and tackle, disconnected when not in use.  Dennis

Well, 8 days in the hospital set me back a bit, but now home and back to the build.  Upper railing is in.  Had to stich on the webbing, then make  a number of hammocks, folded them and inserted between the rails, as they used the hammocks as shrapnel protection to a degree.  On to the "tools", etc.  Dennis

That is looking neat Dennis. Sorry to hear that you have been in Hospital. I recall you saying that you had to go in for a check or similar, but not for that long  :(( I hope you are recovering well, the modelling should be theraputic.

Feeling better, but slow recovery.  Good thing is I can still model.  Takes my mind off of things.  Ok, tools are made. This kit did not provide all the tools that were used, but this will be enough.  More would just make it cluttered I think.  Four for each cannon will be mounted overhead in a rack, some will be on deck.  Dennis

Enough to explain the method of serving cannon Dennis.

Looking good.

Gentlemen,  the Combat Station model is completed.  I hope to get a case for it tomorrow.  Its been a fun build.  Haven't made my mind up if I want to get two more kits and make a full width model.  If I do, there are alot of changes I would like to make over what the kit provides.  Too many models, too little time.  Back to the Lexington.

Here she is secure in her case.  I use LED puk lights for illumination.  Elevated the model up some for better viewing.  I need to find some black metal clips to secure the case top to base, as it is just resting there.  I'm happy with the results. Cheers ;)  Dennis
