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)

this is the kit way

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...

thank you
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
