Got the deck guns and mountings sorted. Decided to keep the Marsilly carriage and alter them a bit. The trunion brackets have been left off so the guns can be painted separately. Ill finish a few more deck details then look at the sides of the hull.

Thanks  :)

So, after two failed attempts at getting the hull sides right it's third time lucky. With any luck it'll be getting it's first coats of paint next week.




Still a couple of little things to tidy up but I'm happy with the process and will tidy everything once it's all in place.

Im very impressed with the hull cladding - and am not surprised it took an effort to get so right

What thickness plasticard did you? Did you heat it? What glue? So many questions .....  :)
