Grrrrr,
Getting shortchanged again.Cursing
After fitting the rubbing strakes (1.5x3 mil applewood) I realised there wasn't enough left for the rest of the build. At least 2 strips short.
I haven't used it elsewhere so someone needs to get there calculator out.

However I have some oddments left from my Endeavour Launch and will substitute that where it will not be noticed so much.

When I built my Endeavour Launch I had quite a shortage on the rigging, and the masts were delivered in 3m/m instead of 4m/mm.

I wish Atesania Latina would have a kit list of what is in the box, rather than their current method.

example...Part 32 and 39 are the same material and part 32 is cut into different lengths, so it impossible to check the quantities before you start.

I suppose this is the European way of doing things.

I have at least finished the gunports. I am not too happy with them but they will be covered up any way by metal frames.


cheers to all Peter

Hello crew (including the plastic ones)

Thanks for the earlier comments.
I have just been doing a bit of work on the stern and fitting the lining strakes. Off to one side is the stern gallery which I am slowly assembling.
Apart from that it is going slowly.
I do not work on the model Wed-Fri because of work commitments and the rest of the time I must share between the model SWMBO and the kids.

I have attached a few more pics including one of a new friend who has attached himself to our garden. His owners moved away and left him behind, they know he comes to our garden but they have got another cat and don't seem to want him. Oh well another mouth to feed.

cheers Peter

Hi Crew,
Just a few pics and a few lines.
I have fitted the stern gallery, the gratings, and various bits.
I have the ladders, forecastle grating and the belaying pin parts on the bench in different stages of construction.

I enjoy reading other peoples build diaries and wonder where you all get the time to do it and find places to put them, especially the members doing multi builds.
My missus says "Thats not going on the front room table you can keep that down the shed". That's what she thinks he he he.
Anyway happy building.

Peter

Hi again,
There are a few unfinished parts on the pictures, undrilled holes plus a couple of rubbing strakes I forgot about.
I am also thinking of fitting some nails along the rubbing strakes as decoration. I fitted nails on the tops of the handrails and like the effect.
Any thoughts on that anyone?
I know its my build and can paint it purple if I want to, but another persons veiw is always helpful

Thanks for the comments guys,
I will plan where to put the extra nails while I am fitting the lower deadeyes, which will take some time.
I have fitted everything else except the cannons and the forecastle grating, which I am having to make out of wooden comb slats, which is a nuisance as I have to keep offering them up to the plan to get the right shape.
I don't know whether to fit the shields or not but still have plenty of time to decide.
I too am an ex-smoker. I packed it in 40 years ago when I was 24 I used to wake up in the early hours of the morning coughing my lungs up. At the moment I only get chest problems after I have had a cold etc. And that can take up to six weeks to clear up.

happy modeling
cheers Peter

Hi modellers,
I hope you are all ok.
I've just put up a few pics but I haven't advanced much due to other commitments ie kids and holiday outings.
I have painted the deadeyes black but have not finished tying off yet because I have not finished lined up the masts. They are slightly out of line.
I like the last picture because the rippled glass table looks a bit like water.(well it does to me)
I have included a shot of the drawing showing the various translations of "dead eyes" interesting to note they are referred to as clumpblocks in the parts list.

cheers Peter

Looking nice!
A word of warning though, before you do much more rigging, the rail directly behind the main mast is also a pin rail and will need to be drilled out before you do much more rigging.
There are twelve pins to locate they are place in pairs between the columns, this does not appear in the instructions but is shown on the plan which you might not have recieved yet.
Hope that is of some help to you, I have included a photo from my build as a guide.



This isn't the best picture but you can just about see the pins?
Cheers Steve..

I have been making my first attempt at tying ratlines.
The first picture is the foremast set which are a bit saggy in places, the top half is much better, I may redo them later.

The second picture is the mainmast set, a bit blurry but a lot better.
The third picture is the method I have been using to tie the ratlines.

I leave enough space to tie two then move up two. After tying four I glue them with watered down pva. While they are drying, I go and play with my Del Prado Cutty Sark.

Cheers Peter

As work dictates when I can do any modeling I am still tying lower ratlines.
Very tedious and how my shoulders ache.
I am working between this job and my Cutty Sark so no more pictures until I have completed the lower ratlines
cheers all
