Hi all here is tonights bit, I've corrected another flaw of this kit There is a big gap in the knee of the head (which according to the experts would not hold the weight of the head and should have been filled with carvings of some sort ) here is the gap

and (since i'm no carver her is my fix, I know its not very elaborate but it fills the hole)

Hi all here is todays efforts. The rear galleries should be open (in fact even on the boxart they are open) so I've cut them out(very nail biting as one slip and I could have ruined them) now I just have to do the floor on the 2 galleries.

Hi all here is the next update, I wanted to add some detail to the cannons which can be seen so, after a great suggestion from a member elsewhere on how to make them I made some eyelets for the tie down ropes.

Hi all here is the next update on this.
Made a little jig for putting the tie down rings in the same place every time.













yes I know I've missed some painting on the front of the decks but will sort that soon.

Hi all well this kit comeso with no anchors for the boats so I've knocked some up, also there are no oars, I've checked a few builds not of the heller kits and they don't seem to have any either, were they stored below decks or should they be there.



Sorry my build rate has slowed so much, but I get some done when I can fit it in and am not feeling too knackered.

Hi all well still on this, not much to show, I seem to have lost any skill I had, this is looking so shabby, showed so much potential when I started it, I thought the wood effect was great (I know bit big headed but I did think it was a good effect) seems to have gone down hill since then, sorry.

Hi all a tiny update really just to show I'm still on this (I know it's not great but I figure I can remove all the gold and redo it, if and when my mojo returns.

Just caught up to this build - holy *expletive deleted*. Amazing work, both in the build and the amount of it being done. No doubt you're feeling the rollercoaster of varying enthusiasm, I know I did during my ship build and your build is a lot more detailed and involved than mine was. All I can offer is that it's best to leave it alone if you really don't feel like working on it, don't try to make yourself work on it out of a sense of obligation (that never winds up being good).
