Hi Tom ,

Ok then, I'm back again
It was really ages ago when I've posted my last build diary but I'm back. I must say I've done quite a bit of the build, just judge yourself.
You will nottice two diferent shades of deck planking - I've ran out of them half way trough and new supply was bit darker :/ - next time I'll be sure I've got enough strips for full deck.

Sit back and relax BigGrin

Hi again

It's been a while but I managed to do some canon rigging. I'm going to upload more pictures after this weekend (hopefully).



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

As you can see I modified slightly rigging (it's not finished yet)

Cheers

Hi there
It's been a while since last post but I'm just too busy to get on to it :(
Last wef days I managed to push work bit further.
Check out last pics :)





As you will see below, I've decided to change position of the canons on the on side of the ship. I've rigged them retracted as you can see. Just for fun :)















I hope you liked it :)

Hi Tom

Can you explain the rope going from cannon to cannon on one side of your model? It's like nothing I have seen before!

Hi Mike

The rope going trough canons is called "messenger cable". According to DeAgostini in Issue 48 page 6 it is described as double breeching.

Quote from Issue48 page6

"...Below left, a more secure method was double breeching. As well as lashing the barrel and tightening the breech rope, the gun is secured to a heavy "messenger cable" running all the way along the row of guns on the deck..."

I hope it helped :)

Obviously only applies to stowed guns

I have studied many references to 18C/19C war ships but I have never come across any reference to a messenger cable run through the row of guns. In heavy weather, the guns were stowed with extra breeching cables on each gun to keep it close to the sides of the ship, an arrangement I believe was known as double breeching but frankly I don't see how a long rope would prevent individual cannons moving. If the only reference is DeAgostini's build notes, I would want to know where they got their information from!!Confused Confused

I'm always prepared to learn something new!
