Hi all couldn't resist a bit of varnish (just to see the beauty of the wood grain)

Hi all, sooo close




Shaping the planks to fit the ever narrowing spaces  (scharf joints I think their called ) is a very slow job (and each one is a different shape) but it is surprisingly satisfying when they finally fit.

Finally finished the planking of the hull, luckily the top half is black so I can hide the bad bits under the paint, I'm really pleased with the bottom half though which is good since I will just be varnishing that and leaving the wood to show.
I must admit its turned out far better than I hoped it would.

Hi all planking done and varnished, made up the stand, painted the black top part and added some more to the decking structure.

Hi all well I'm on to the gunwale covers (why they are called that I dont know, they cover nothing have nothing to do with guns and what wale's are I've no idea) anyway I've made a jig to get all the holes in the same place.


Drilled all 52 holes


Gunwales installed




Bit annoyed with the instructions (and myself for not checking) they tell you to drill 52 holes @ 1.5 mm but the brass wire they supply is only 1 mm

The gunwale (or gunnel) was a region of thickened planking round the gunports in a sailing warship. This was to provide more strength to the hull. This evolved over time to the top section of hull planking often including the internal planking at deck level. So your gunwhale covers will cover the top of the planking inside the bulwarks to cover the gaps between frames.Wales were sections of thickened planking to give localised strength to the hull, chainwales (channels) were where the lower ends of the standing rigging attached to the hull.

Splendid job kp.  This is going to look gorgeous when finished.  :-)) :-))   Hope you have a nice space allocated for display.

(One small query - why the small protusion below the forefoot - is there another piece to be added to the keel?)

No sorry mate just not removed it yet.
Well shes got a name on her now, I feel shes looking like a ship now and with the lines on the side the proportions are looking better (I did think without them she was looking slab sided)

Hi all finished the planking on the bow (those little bends in the 2x2mm sapeally were a real pain in the bum, that is the 12th set of those, they kept snapping when trying to bend them) I finally managed to get the bend by soaking them in boiling water then giving them 2 mins in the microwave.

I made a simple jig to keep the ribs the same distance apart and to keep them perpendicular to each other









Made the cats whiskers too.

I know I'm jumping ahead a bit (well quite a lot) but I thought it might be interesting to add some of the deck furniture.







I made another little jig for the covers for the hatch as there are a lot of them and they all need to be the same.

Ok so I'm back on this, first thing to sort is something that's been bugging me since I noticed it in the photos (didn't notice it on the actual thing for some reason) the cowls the anchor chains go into (sorry dont know what they're called) are not the same distances from the hold frame.


So sorted that (disguising the old hole was a pain but I dont think it notices now)




Personally I think this is a great kit (I know some people say otherwise) I dont know anything about the other kit as I've not built them but I'm not too worried about accuracy so i not too bothered about whether it's the right hull lines or too wide, whatever.


They give you ample material to build her (up till now since my brother stripped the planking off and I stripped all the decking off) they give you nearly enough to build her twice, i only had to buy 10 strips of decking to finish that off and have not had to buy any of the side planking and still have loads left over the quality of the materials is top notch my only slight complaint is the instructions are quite confusing (that said they give you a full size high quality photo of the finished model so you can measure and check off that)

More work on her, the forward cabins were very confusing.
The steps were a pain to fit and to be honest they couldn't be used anyway, look where they are you would have to get round the belaying pins and anyway they come out under the poop deck (incidentally that is exactly where the instructions tell you to put them.

I'm continually amazed at the quality of work you are producing considering the broken wreck that you started with!   :-))

Done some of the panels round the top rails and made a start on the bowsprit, even added the figurehead.
