She looks as if she has quite a beam John; I think you will be surprised at how much ballast she will need to get her down to the water line. Im building an AHT at the moment and she is 55inchs long, I have had her in the tub for ballast checks and she takes 56lb to get her down to the water line. (I think I will name her Hernia.)  {-) {-)

Hi there all
Quick update.
The inner bulwark supports have been made out of styrene and fitted.
The next job on the list is to plank the main deck using 4mm x 0.5mm strips of maple wood to represent the caulking I used a permanent felt tipped pen down the sides of each plank and then each plank was glued into position using PVA glue.
When the planking had finished and all the planks had dried out, I then levelled the planks with the aid of a Stanley knife blade without the holder held it 90 to the deck planking and scraped along taking very fine shavings off.   This was then rubbed down with a very light grade of sand paper.  Next job in hand was to fit the safety bars across the openings of the storm ports.  The storm ports will eventually have doors on the outside as well.
Now I am on with the tedious job of fitting the half round rubbing and protection bars on the outside of the hull.  Couple of pics see what you think.
Aye
John

hi ya all

nothing but the Danish Best Streaky back bacon was used for the korts nozzle  :}  fried to a crisp in the big frying pan; the rind was laminated with a bit tomato sauce and if you notice the egg yoke went into the glue and hence yellow glue  %% %% %% cooked on medium heat for 5-10 mins followed with a healthy dollop of red sauce on the hull - next will be adding the steak, but, gotta have onion rings with much-rooms and ships

 %% %%

aye
thanks for the comments there lads  :-)) :-)) :-)) ;) ok2 :-) :} :}

hi ya - quick update progressing more with the superstructure; been working on the bridge and the aft deck.

The superstructure is all made from a variety of plywoods from 1/64 to 1/16 - bit slow going cos there are a lot of angles involved in it and I had one or two attempts at the bridge front, trying to get that angle right.   

By the way I missed your post Tug Kenny earlier on.   Sorry about that mate.   But if you are ever in the North East you know you are more than welcome and it will be me learning from you mate.

Hi there all,
Quick update:

Been busy with the bridge fitting it out glazing it, using clear CD cases for the glazing.
For the instruments inside, I have made them from balsa blocks covered with Plasticard and bits of copper wire.
