Hi Team,
While building this model, I wanted to have more accuracy in the build and I planned some enhancements, but in order to have these enhancements for myself I need 10 members to also want them, so we can get the best price and the product together.
Here are the enhancements:-

1) FULL SIZE MAST WITH STANDARD RIGGING.
2) 1/72 SCALE COPPER TILE PACK.
3) 1/72 SCALE BOARDING PIKES.
4) ENHANCED CANNON KIT.
5) BLACK COATED STEEL CANNON BALLS 2mm in packs of 250.
6) ENTRANCE CANOPY ( 4 piece with overdoor motiff)
7) MASTHEAD LAMP white metal and brass etch

If you are interested in making these Enhancements happen please PM me

Kind Regards
Mike

Hi Team here is an update of this great model.

I have planked the pump well and the stand with the walnut planking, it is not finished yet but I thought you would like an update.

I am doing this slowly and fitting lots of enhancements for which I have all the prices now. here are some photos:-

The parts have not been trimmed or sanded yet in those photos and so you can see where the planking overhangs the part.

Questions and comments are welcomeBigGrin I will leave you with a photo that gives you an idea of what the stand will look like.

Kind regards Mike

Like what you've done with the stand Mike, well done! Think I may copy your idea and as you say, the walnut is a great colour.
If I hadn't already ordered the Victory stand from DeAg, I think I may well have used that treatment on the 'build stand' that was supplied with our build which would be more than adequate after three or four coats of varnish and a nice brass name plate.
Happy building Mike
David
PS: That brass cannon enhancement is superb - will definitely be ordering those from you when I get to the X-section build.
