couple of more row of plankings fitted to the sides of upper gun deck.
....
planking of the upper gun deck finished at starboard side... much slower than expected due to precision cut outs for the frames.

masking tape removed around gun ports, result looks quite good 😊... bitts painted black, will be fitted later on... strips for gratings cut to size and assembled, glued, let them dry overnight to allow further shaping (sanding, assembling)...
I also post two pictures from the launch, which I made long time ago and stored in a box to protect from dust... 😊

Gratings completed, varnished, cannon balls fitted... started to work on 10 tiny cannons which will be placed and properly rigged (😳) onto upper gun deck.
Gun carriages painted yellow ochre... using my Dremel and a needle file as a lathe 40 (!!!) tiny axles turned from toothpicks ... this is to replace the provided brass wire axles to make it more authentic...

Holy cow... another nerve-wracking task... start rigging the cannons... first I need to make two different blocks with attached eyebolts, one with thread, one with wire... just for reference the lenght of the block is 4mm... I'm glad that my son is asleep already otherwise he would learn immediately a very wide range of Hungarian swearing 😂😂😂... and I've done only 1 pair... and I need 20 pairs in total!!!
Update... by end of today I managed to make 6 + 8 pcs

all 20 blocks done with the wire... the ones with the thread had to re-think and start again as even the short rope (2-3mm) was too long... the rope is still wrapped around the block but no additional length of it, a ring added between the block and the eyebolt... 6 of them completed, 14 to go
