Hello all,

A very busy few weeks in the shipyard constructing the guard rails. Reasonably straight forward and repetitive once you get going. However, a significant amount of time was required doing dry fits. Especially for the die-cut pieces of railing for the two quarter deck sections.

For the main deck it was a toss-up between having the top rail straight, or a downward curve. I opted for the latter and used a combination of rubber bands, balsa blocks and pins to achieve what I was happy with.

Some slight deviation with the end pieces of the balustrades. I ended up rounding the ends to a curve to align the top railing with the deck. Otherwise the upper railing would have been jutting outwards and it just didn’t look right. To help with the dry fitting, I used some sewing clamps available from the local haberdashery. These are nice and small and great for attaching the curved balustrade to the gun port rings.

For the upper quarterdeck bulwarks, I applied a layer of sapele strips to the outer faces. This was to ensure a finished texture similar to that previously applied to the hull. Some additional features are applied to the upper quarterdeck in the way of 4mm trim around the outer edges and 3x3mm supports to the bulwarks. This was to help stabilise the base of the railing as I thought it was a bit flimsy and unsteady without them. A bit tricky trying to measure the spacing before attaching the upper railing, but the end result was pretty close in line with the gun wale strips.

So, that’s it for constructing guard rails for the time being. Now it’s time to assembly grates and finish of the rectangular openings in the desks.

Until next time.
Regards, Adam
