I've been in Tuscany for about twenty days now. In this period I started thinking about my next model, which will begin here and, most likely, will be finished when I'll return to Cinisello (Milan). I don't want to anticipate anything about the new project right now, just think that I have already purchased the materials and I'm waiting for its arrival.

In the meantime, I arranged to complete the remaining two Guadeloupe's boats. I started with the intermediate size boat.
In the first image we can see the boat still fastened to its building slip. It has been in this state for almost a couple of years. .

The first activity I did was to unplug the boat in order to work inside. Thanks to the use of the mini drill with a cutting tool, this happened without any problems. Then I arranged to "fix" the outer wood color with a coat of oil for wood. This operation avoids that some drops of glue not properly removed, at a finishing stage may alter the wood color. The application of the oil, however, doesn't absolutely inhibit the use of vinyl glue. The picture below shows the color difference of the timber after having applied the oil.

Then the work inside the hull began: the first activity was to double the number of hull ribs; task long enough considering their number and size but it's quite well done.
Subsequently the installation of the bottomwoods. . and the longitudinal seat supports.

Then, the central seats, including reinforcements where provided, bow and stern, and finally the gunwales. Now the bigger tasks are over, although there is still enough work to be done, including the final finishing of what has been done so far.

But this will be matter of the next posts . .
Cordiality, Jack.

I returned from Tuscany to Cinisello a few days ago and I'am now involved in many matters raised during my absence from Cinisello. I believe as soon as possible to finally resume some real kind of ship modeling.
I am publishing the latest news about this model which, due to the various location changes, has been a little forgotten, preferring other models that luckily, were completed in a quicker time.

I honestly don't know when I will resume full-time work on this model, but before I can do it, I would rather finish the Ragusian Carrack model.

See you soon, Jack.Aubrey

The third launch of Guadeloupe. . . there is still a lot to do.

The other two boats are now finished, except for some small details (oars, etc.) to be made later

Very neat work Jack.

The wood you use on your models always looks so nice and its so smooth and good looking quality.
