Hi Mike,

No panic, the cannon are drilled and the breeching rings added to the cannon in issue 138.

Cannon size appears about right for being 32-pounders, though we won't be receiving any 24-pounders, as there are no 24-pounder gun ports either side of the entry port.

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 I have received support from more than 10 members now.
If you would like to be included in any of the X-section enhancements please PM me (The full size mast with standard rigging is looking good photos in the new year)

Hi Graeme, Just a line to say the photos will be of the actual product, I will fit a mast to my X Section in due course so all the members will be able to see the finished product before they commit past the deposit stage, I want everyone who has supported this project to be totally satisfied.

Kind regards

Mike

THE STAND MODIFICATION


While I am waiting for the Full main mast with standard rigging, I have been doing bits and pieces, the stand is nearly finished, I sheathed the ply pieces in 1 mm x 5mm walnut, I propose to finish it with danish oil, unless you guys have any suggestion.
This is a great model with lots of scope for enhancements,Andy has done a fabulous job of enhancing his build, Good stuffBigGrin Kind regards Mike

Hi Mike, as usual job well done. I think Danish oil will really bring out the grain and make it look great.
