Hi Stevie

Beautiful work on those carronades! Glad to see you've got them mounted broadsides too!BigGrin
Even the Jotika kit puts them pointing foward, but if their first shot of the battle caused so much damage, they must have been fired in a raking shot through the Redoubtable's stern which means they must have been firing broadside!
Lovely finish on the barrels, is that paint or chemical blackening?

Keep it up M8

Thanks for nice comments RobinBigGrin I really hadnt thought about them facing broadside or why for that matter, the de ag guide shows them this way but I'm pleased that you say this is more genuine!
The barrels are painted with the jotika metal black paint
Cheers

Hello againBigGrin
Well have I had an infuriating couple of nights with these hammock cranes and netsCursing
Still have loads to do and over 70 more hammocks to make yet, the worse part for me must be the sewing the nets onto the crane rails, the thread gets caught on every sticky out bit on every stitch, pinrails, stair pillars, even the chainwales, the thread seems to be attracted to anything it can get caught on.
As you can see I have only completed the 2 short rails on deck and these have to go all round the entire capping rails yet.
More to come but it is slow going!
Steve

Thanks Alan, My weakness I think is these sort of jobs, there are just some jobs you wish could done on the bench and not while on the modelCursing
Nevermind though, I am actually quite happy with how it's looking, just going to take a lot longer than the 1 evening I first estimatedBigGrin
