Hi Team,

Well here we go again, I am really looking forward to building the X - section the opportunity to add accurate detail to and in this 1/72 scale Hull of Englands finest ship could not pass me by I am very excited at the prospect.

I hope to have the opportunity to add some enhancements, when we see what is being included in the build.

I will certainly add a full mast with standard rigging, as I see from graphic that Admin posted, that a stubb mast is planned for the build.

I shall be off to the newsagent this week to see if ISSUE 1 is out.

WATCH THIS SPACE!BigGrin Kind Regards Mike

ISSUES 124 - 125

The wood we have received for planking outside and inside the hull is Lime wood, a good quality wood spoiled by the way it has been cut with a guillotine and really should have been sawn.

The planks I have received in both issues have round edges on them where the pressure of the guillotine has caused this. please have a look:-

I still believe this will be a great partwork and I will be adding 1/72 scale copper tiles which I have sourced, and butted up to the tiles I will be double planking with 5x1mm walnut planking above the water line;-

I will be adding a full size mast with standard rigging, and depending on what we receive other enhancements such as Boarding Pike (1/72 scale) and a mast head lamp which I have sourced, see photo.

as usual it will depend on other members wanting these enhancements, to get them at the right price -- hence my definition of TEAM--- Together Everyone Achieves More

Hi Mike
Although I've only just received issues 110 - 114 of the main build, I have already decided that I'll be going on to the cross-section build.
I'd just like to show my interest in any enhancements you will be looking at for this build - I'd be interested in the full mast and the copper tiles just for starters.
P.S Haven't started on the gallery enhancement as yet because I'm waiting to see how others have coped with completely removing the old back board and side panels first. The two that I have looked have both added their enhancement kit over the back panel and although this looks amazing, I'd just like to see how a complete removal goes first.
Happy building
David

The next job is to cover the Rib Plan with cling film, I did not like this idea so I used the plastic that the fret and parts came in:-
