Very nice indeed  :-))  I do like your gilding - well worth the time and money to produce an exceptional model.

I do hope your missing parts arrive soon.  We have a few French members here on Mayhem - I wonder if they could help being a little closer to the source?

Hi all well I'm afraid this is as far as I can go till the parts come so hopefully they will be here soon.
I cant glue the two boxes on yet as I would not be able to get the other cannons in so this is it for now.

She looks brilliant! You know the owner has a few 'bob' when he has the cannon guilt!

I am pleased to hear that the missing sprues are on their way, this is a positive note for Heller.

Emailed Heller and have been told the parts were shipped on the 23rd so hopefully not long to wait.  Still won't get much done as off on hols in a fortnight.

That gun platform says 'Ceremonial' by the way the large cannon are jammed in like parked cars. That is becoming one beautiful ship. I am so glad you stayed the course and that Heller came through with the missing sprues.

You are doing fine KP,. The depth of the wash on that guilding is superb. She will be a treat when completed.

She's coming on a treat. The flags really bring the project on. I cannot wait to see the masts and rigging to go up.

Have a good break.

Hi all well here it is last build post on this before we are on hols



























just one question, the rigging thread which\that(dont know the correct word) comes with the kit is off white, is that right, as the only rigging colour I've seen is black ( or at least it looks black) I thought they used tarred rope so that would make it black

Standing rigging would be black but running rigging would be light brown. The tar used is Stockholm tar which is not oil based but is I think based on tree resin.
