Those belay pin racks look great Alan, fiddly and tedious but worth it.

Thanks for looking in and your comments. appreciated...Cool Cool .. In this stage we assemble another 16 gun carriages. These are assembled in exactly the same way as already outlined in stage 18, therefore am not going to repeat the process here. This brings an end to stage 42, next stage we go through the process of fitting the gun carriages in place. Until then, happy building all....Cool Cool

Regards

Alan

hi. i have started my build and will shortly be starting the first set of planking, it says in the instructions to glue the planks but does not mention pins, i see you pinned yours and that there are pins in the kit, should i use these pins for the planking. Im getting sweaty palms at the prospect of the planking as thats where i seem to fail lol

Pins provided with the kit are not for planking purposes and will be required later in the build. The pins I used were from my own stock. There are many other ways of securing the planks and you may find this topic useful...

https://www.model-space....s-victory-full-kit.html

If you would prefer to use brass pins then they are available in various sizes from this supplier

https://www.cornwallmode...p;TB=O&ACTION=Go%21

I would also recommend you pre-drill the pin holes first to help prevent the wooden strips or frames from splitting...

One of my favourites is round headed map pins however, you should consider these as one time use only simply because the head of the pin is likely to come away when withdrawing the pins.

Hope this helps..

Regards

Alan

Lovely work Alan, you can definitely see those coming. I’m surprised they didn’t shout,” you’ve been tango’d”LOL

thanks for the advice Alan, i need to order a few bits so i will order those pins too. I think i will take your earlier advice and set aside my Hermione build and start my victory to get into the planking side of things. your build of Hermione looks fantastic, im looking forward to the day i can take on projects with confidence.many thanks Andre

I think you're making the right decision Andre, building the Vic first will give you a good insight on the process for ship building. The Hermione is certainly not a kit for the novice....

Looking to move this one forward a little and this stage has us fitting and rigging the 16 cannons on the upper deck. Stage 19 outlined in detail the process of fitting and rigging the cannons so it is not my intention to repeat the process here. This brought an end to stage 43. More soon....

Excellent work, looks like it will be a lovely ship when built.

Lucky you’re in Aberdeen, it’s too hot to even think of doing any modelling down here Blink
