good evening everyone
i redid the derrick mast, 40mm to long was something that was going to look a bit stoopid, one on the right is the correct length

good evening everyone
after deck awning stanchion
the instructions, say 40mm bend 5mm and hammer flat the last 2mm and drill  1mm hole in the flat bit x 12
must be a better way, so i took 35mm bend 5 and added a pintle on the end by soldering x 12, these will be added to the build this week, lol i see so many snag hazards later on with the rigging, im going to curse this so very much

IMG_9414.thumb.JPG.bdbb2e816acfb543295c0926b535bf44.JPG
i dont know what these look out posts are called, but again i have replaced gluing with soldering, there is not a lot of room for them, i will have to shorten the hand rail by a couple of mm

on the lower part of the mast there is a coller  and 4 holes need to be drilled into it, and  pintles inserted  through which a wire hoop is fitted, this has hooks hanging from it an supports the cope coils from the pin rails  (Just below the awning)

search light platform fitted

the radar according to the kit is hung below  main top in fact it is not and forms part of the planform
also other things are changing as i go along like extra holes on the top for lines to pass through

Gasp! You have a proficient eye for detail and the skill to implement.
St Nectan is a beauty and Amerigo Vespucci takes my breath away with your detailed work.


Retirement - isn't it good..! I started my first and only build in early 2016 and I still fear that I'm not going to sail this year despite retirement last year and lock-down...

i wish at times this was the Victory, i have as much time on the AV as i like, where as the Victory was weekend and holidays, it was suggested that i strip her back again and rework the rigging and put sails on

Good evening everyone
over the last couple of days the build table has been busy, the foremast lower sections are now complete i think, i keep finding new bits to scratch and add, the radar assembly requires a cage around it so i fabricated one, far better than the kit callout
today the main parts of the  bowsprit were made up on the lathe to fit the brass fittings

good evening everyone


most of the foremast has been conpleted, there is enough for ,e to work out where the bowsprit rigging will go to

the bowsprit although not 100% complete is coming together, i am trying to make it look more realistic than the kit allows

Just amazed at your skill and attention to detail.  What's to say about the green (I like it).... the purist will always have something to say if you don't follow the rules.  I built my "Ajax" English Frigate" per plan and kit.  It was not until later that there was a bunch of noise out on the forums that the "Ajax" never existed.  I decided just to not name my model and only call her a representation of an typical English Frigate.  Made me feel better.  In the end. You are the builder.  I decided that I want to donate 5 of my US Aircraft Carrier models to a nearby US Naval Air Station.  Being ex-Navy, I would be proud if they would accept them.  Waiting for an answer.   Too many models, not enough room.    Take care,  Dennis

Confirmed and correct, modern day steel frigate "Ajax".  Also, there is record of an English Frigate "Ajax" of 1810-1864.  My comment was based on discussions several years ago, while I was building the model "Ajax" that there was question as to her existance.  I made the decision to not name my model, but just show her as an example of a military version of a typical English Frigate of 1850.  Dennis

You know, the plans for the "Ajax" might work for that model.  They were noted to be one of the finest produced.  Sadly, I did not save my set.  Wonder if you can buy just the plans or even if the kit is still made.  Was it a Euro kit?  Too long ago.  Dennis

Ok, here you go: https://forum.game-labs.net/topic/3058-hms-ajax-british-frigate-with-plans/   this link will bring back all the ugly comments about the "Ajax"...... now I know why I did not name my model.  It was the Euro kit and those are "some" of the plans provided in the kit.  It was difficult to build, took me 3 yrs., but did produce a nice model in the end.  Dennis
