Stage 62

Stage 62 contents:- Rails, ramin strips, rivets and blocks.

Remove the rudder from the fret supplied in stage 56 sand the edges and then paint them brown, you could also use any spare second planking to clad the rudder so it matches the rest of the hull.

Next take the hinges from stage 57 and fit each one to the rudder starting at the bottom and working your way up. Use a 0.75mm drill and nails cut to around 2mm in length to glue and fix each hinge in place. You will need to shorten the hinges as you get to the upper part of the rudder.

Now test fit the rudder against the hull and adjust it so that the bottom of the rudder fits in line with the keel and that the top fits under the gallery.

Take two 2 x 5 x 300mm ramin strips and paint them black in the same way that you painted the bulwarks, once dry fit them behind the bulwarks already fitted. The strip will be about 1cm short of the 8th gunport so use some more 2 x 5mm strip to fill the gap.

Stage 64 contents:- Bulwarks and detailing, ramin strips, rivets,hinges and double blocks.

Remove one of the stern bulwarks and prepare it in the same way the bow bulwarks were painted then glue it in place above the stern gallery. Prepare three 2 x 5 x 300mm ramin strips like before painting them in the same way. Glue these in place going forward from the stern gallery until you reach the 8th gunport where the bow bulwarks finished. Sand flat any joints and repair any paintwork on the bulwarks. You should now have bulwarks all around the hull with a gap on either side at the 8th gun port from the bow.

Next take four 2 x 5 x 300mm ramin strips and paint the inside face with the same green you have used on the inner bulwarks. When dry measure 8mm back from the 5th gunport on both sides of the bulwark. Take one of the prepared green strips and glue it centrally along the bulwark with the green face inwards the end of the strip should be inline with the three black steps at the bow. Repeat the above for the other side.

On the stern gallery bulwark mark a line 2mm back from the inner edge and then glue another green painted strip along the marked line, add two more unpainted 2 x 5mm strips behind the painted strip. When the glue is dry trim the strips in line with the side bulwarks. From the stern gallery add more strips with the green side facing inwards placing them centrally on both sides of the ship until you reach the rear of the 8th gunport. Sand any joints smooth and retouch any paintwork.

Cut two lengths of 2 x 6mm ramin strip and fit them behind the pieces just fitted. You should now have a bow bulwark that resembles the letter 'H' placed on its side along the green strip upright.

Remove the last gallery bulwarks and paint the insides black the same way the other was prepared then take four 2 x 6mm ramin strips and prepare those in the same way. Glue the upper gallery bulwark to the lower bulwark making sure both line up with each other and then glue the ramin strip to either side of the ship forward until you reach the 8th gunport. From the 8th gunport to the stern you should now have an upper bulwark that looks like the letter 'H' laid on its side. Smooth off the ends of the bulwarks just completed so they are flat and retouch any paint if needed.

Next take a 1 x 8 x 300mm ramin strip from stage 55 and use this strip to cover the ends of the stern gallery and between the bulwarks above the stern gallery. Once the glue is dry sand the edges to shape.

Stage 70

Stage 70 contents:- Gun port lids, carronade parts and dummy cannon.

For this stage you make up a waterline marker as described in the stage instructions or use one that is available to buy either will do the job just fine. The area above the waterline is to be painted black make or set up your tool so your pen tip is 91mm from the base of the tool. Place the hull on a table making sure it is vertical to the tool and mark a waterline all around the hull. Use masking tape along the marked line then seal the edge with a clearcoat to prevent bleed.

Cut a 2 x 2 x 300mm ramin strip into two lengths of 150mm, mark a line 2mm below the edge of gunport 8 and 2mm past it towards the stern fit one of the 150mm strips along this line and do the same on the other side of the hull.

Give the upper part of the hull a light sanding then using the black paint of your choice start to pant the edges of the upper gunports and to fill in the lower gunports in the same way. Once all the gunports are painted on one side paint the rest of the hull black, do the same on the other side and the gallery. Sand the hull gently between coats and add as many coats of paint as needed to get an overall finish to the hull. When the paint is dry remove the masking tape.
