Pack 9 - Stage 94



Started out by repeating the previous stage on the starboard side.

Next I shaped and smoothed out the round gun ports and made a recess on the rail for another round port 35mm forward of the first one. Finished the stage by test fitting the round ports.

This was repeated on the other side of the ship.

Pack 10 - Stage 103


The rail columns were fitted across the forward forecastle rail. I then prepared the forecastle side gunwales to receive the hand rails.

I was unable to finish this stage because for some reason, I came up 20 columns and 2 hand rail fittings short. Hopefully customer service can get me some replacements soon.

With the exception of the missing parts, this stage and pack is completed.
