BigGrin Hi all hoping to start this build in the next few weeks. I have lots of ideas running around in my head of doing a bit of a custom job on this stunning ship still not sure what yet but it will be a all wood finish so that will push my planking skills Laugh

See you soon Rgd Martyn

BigGrin Thanks all for the looking in Cool

BigGrin Got some parts today in the post so had a look. Very nice packing and the parts are clean with no warping . also in the pack is some glue and sandpaper Cool

First job sanding and dry fitting the first rib to the keel . I found it to be a nice sliding fit into the slots BigGrin Next up glueing the rib to the keel . A small drop of PVA was appled to the slots and slid into place then with a setsquare to set the rib 90deg to the keel and set aside to dry BigGrin

Thanks for looking next update soon rgd Martyn

BigGrin Hi all Cool

I have finished planking the deck and have moved on to the anchors Cool

The anchors are cast and with very little mold lines . The stock is also cast as I want a all wood finish I have made some out of walnut with tin foil bands to look like iron Cool

Next step is putting more frames onto the keel . As before thay have been set to right angles to the keel Cool As you can see I am useing a build jig to hold the keel in place BigGrin

More to follow see you soon rgd Martyn

Hi martyn, good to see you back with another long term project,I thoroughly enjoyed your sovereign build from start to finish.Will be following your build log when I can inbetween work and trying to finish my sovereign.
Man he took his time in the sun
Had a dream to understand
A single grain of sand
He gave birth to poetry
But one day will cease to be
Greet the last light of the library...We were here!

BigGrin Thanks for the bril comments guys Cool

Onwards with the build . I have fitted some more ribs to the keel and after they had dryed started fitting the lower decks Cool . I like the decks going in as it stiffens up the ship no end ThumpUp

Next job planking the top decks . The planks have been corked by useing a pencil along the edge Cool . After the openings have been cut out I could see the deck underneath so painted it black Cool

The bulkhead that comes through the deck I have planked with some leftover planks from the SoTs BigGrin

Thanks for looking rgd Martyn

BigGrin Thanks for the nice comment MR T this ship is a dream to build very little adjustments to the parts and I would recommend it to first time builder and the experienced Cool . It will slow down a lot when I get to the planking though Cool
