Indeed! This is looking excellent  :smiley:

Gunwale: Nowadays, this just refers to the wale being raised above deck height. Why Artesania Latina calls the mounts for the gunwale braces "gunwale covers" is anyone's guess  ???

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)

All is excellent to me.  :smiley:   Super work with wood, impressive.  :smiley:   Believe that is way they built it back then.   You probably only one who notices.

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.

That's shaping up as a great beauty of a build.  My hat's off to you for this one.

Enjoy that rigging, mate! Sailing ships always look like an explosion in a rope shop, to me! ;) ;D

Hi all let me start this update by saying (in the politest possible way)

F$%# b%$$/%% hell.

Let me explain.*

I do my modeling in the spare bedroom, I lay a piece of vinyl down on the floor immediately round my work bench and on top of the bench I put the container with all the brass pieces on the bed behind me after removing some parts needed for my next bit of work I set to adding some of the stanchions on the bow and heard this noise as if a plastic container of billions of bits had fallen on the floor, imagine my surprise when turning round to find that is exactly what had happened and of course as it was BEHIND me and not around the vinyl protection area it had fallen on a shag pile carpet, of course the lid came off. So after moving the bed (carpet was under it) shaking the carpet out I got this.



And after several hours 

This



So on with the update.








I'm really chuffed with how it's going (I should point out check ALL the stanchinons BEFORE gluing them in place as some of the holes are not clear and removing and drilling them after they are glued in place is no easy task.
