The opened gunports & cannons are well worth it ( says the bloke who didn't have to do it!) Black paint can only do so much, and
the look of the opened gunports is vastly better.

What scale is she? And overall dimensions?

Imagine seeing the real thing "back in the day" as the saying goes.  Impressive and powerful, probably the equivalent of seeing a battleship or carrier today.

That is some amazing work. I wouldn't have the patience to do something that intricate. Keep it up! I like it.

Hi all I've decided to do something different with this and it involves this

It flickers just like a real candle and the other one is kaput so I developed a cunning plan so, off with the transom

can you guess where this is going
drilled out the windows

then removed the rest of the window
yes thats right I'm going to RC it, only joking, lighting up the state cabins.

Hi all a small update on this, The transom sticks out past the gallaries on the sides and I didnt like the way Airfix just moulded them flat so I've rounded the edges and reguilded them






also the grills on the prow are not moulded all the way through so I drilled all the holes out.






and I've hacked the candle apart and reconfigured it

Most beautiful and detailed.  Will enjoy seeing sails and rigging on.  Thanx for continuing the voyage with us.
