Stage 25 - Contains gun port panels and gun port blanking squares.

Test-fit the forward section of the panel, aligning its stepped aft end with frame 8, then glue/pin the panel into place.

Repeat with the aft panel, though you may first want to soak the aft end of the panel to make it more pliable to fit to the curve of the frame.

Glue and Fit the gun port blanking squares as before, (ensure that each is adequately glued).

Retrieve the grating square previously made. Cut the square to a 43x 43mm square section.

Then line the grating edges using the 2x7mm hardwood strip, and position so that the strips lie flush with the grating top. When the glue has fully dired, sand the strip joints flush.

That's it for this week, carefully store the grating.

Future parts sets/stages:

26 - Contains bulwark panels and gun port blanking squares.

27 - Contains planking strips.

28 - Contains parts to make the steps and three gun sets.

29 - Contains planking strips.

Stage 26 - Contains the port side bulwark panels and gun port blanking squares.

Cut the port side forward and aft bulwark panels from the fret, then glue and pin both in place as you did with the previous (starboard) bulwark panels. You will find there is a step where it butts to the panel above, the step will be blended with the panel above later on.

Glue the gun port blanking squares to the inside of the gun ports, then cut the entry door free on both sids of the hull.

Lightly sand the decks, then seal them using clear matt varnish.

That's it for this stage

Future parts sets/stages:

27 - Contains planking strips.

28 - Contains parts to make the steps and three gun sets.

Stage 27 - Contains hull planking strips.

Lay two rows of planking on either side of the keel as shown in the steps. Remember to protect the upper side of the bow and stern whilst the hull is upside down during the planking process.
Ensure that the planks are glued to each other as well as to the frames, and chamfer the planks where necessary to get a good fit.
Take note of where the joints fall and in particular at the bow, where you will need to bend and cut the planking and also the positioning of the planking at the stern.

Retain the remaining planking as it will be used to continue the hull planking in the following stages.

A second "finishing" layer of dark wood veneer planking (starting at stage 45) will be added over the first once the hull planking is complete.

That's it for this week.

Future parts sets/stages:

28 - Contains parts to make the steps and three gun sets.

29 - Contains planking strips.

30 - Contains two cannon sets, wood strips and grating strips.

Cut, glue and pin a plank from the bow to frame 5, then continue with a plank from frame 5 to frame 8, then from frame 8 to frame 13.
Ensure that the planks are chamfered where necessary and that they are glued to each other as well as to the frames.

Cut, glue and pin a plank from the bow to frame 6, then a plank from frame 6 to frame 10 and from frame 10 extending past the stern.

Repeat on the oposite side of the hull.

Remove one set of stair treads from the fret, smoth the eges then lay the treads out on order of assembly, glue tem togetgher with the largest tread at the bottom and smallest at the top, and ensure that the back edges are aligned as you go.

Once the glue has dried, stain both stair assemblies, and glue each in place on th emain deck as shown in the step photo.

Stage 30 - Contains two cannon sets, hardwood strips and grating strips.

Make the three gratings as shown in the steps (two 18x11mm and one 23x18mm).

Glue the 18x23mm grating into the large hatch on the main deck just aft of the small bow deck hatch. Then cut and add a length of 2x7mm hardwood strip to span the end of the grating just placed.

Take one of the ladders made previously (stain if you wish), then glue the ladder in place in the hatch.

Frame both of the 11x18mm gratings with the 2x2mm wood strip. Sand the edges smoth and the grating on the reverse side level with the frame.

Assemble and finish the cannon as before.

That's it for this stage, carefully store the cannon and 18x11mm gratings.

Future parts sets/stages:

31 - Contains planking strips.

32 - Contains deck stair parts, pin-nails and two cannon kits.

Stage 31 - Contains planking strips.

Continue to fit the hull planking, from frame #7 to frame #11, from frame 11 to frame 14, from frame 6 to frame 8, frame 8 to frame 13 and frame 9 to frame 10.

Then repeat on the opposite side of the hull.

Glue and pin two planks onto the aft bulwark panel, with one running from frame 9 aft and another from frame 10 aft.
When the glue is fully dry, use a knife with a fresh blade to remove any of the planking which falls across the gun port openings.
Later in the build the bulwark planking will be skinned with a dark wood veneer plank, and the gun ports lined with metal gun port frames.

Continue to fit planks at the stern, from frame 11 aft and another from frame 12 aft, again remove any planking which covers the gun ports.
