Just a few little bits this week, trying to get the "attention to detail" bit right!

Added a little extra height to the gunwale bulkheads.



Also started to made a Compass Binnacle cabinet....



....and a little extra that I got for the end of the Anchor davits.

Nice to see you sticking with it. It takes a lot of effort to push through it on this kit. Good job... keep it going! Looks great!

Got a few extra things for Christmas, A Lime Kiln Dried Carving Blanks, for making another figurehead, some extra small bits, and one Carronade (making sure it looks okay, before I buy more for the upperdeck).






I have blackened the rest of the brass parts.



It is slowly coming on, I have used photos of "HMS Ariadine's Figurehead, and also of a bust of "Amphitrite" Neptunes wife, and the sister ship of HMS Trincomalee, which I has based a lot of my work on.

Well it has taken 2 weeks to carve the new figurehead, but it is getting there, and I think that it's a big improvement on the supplied figurehead! Just a little more sanding and a paint job to go.

Just some small but time consuming jobs done this week!!

The figurehead now has some paint, and so does the compass binnacle, complete with it's chimney.

Just finished the aft rails, and also putting in some "anchor rope bollard". Not sure what they are actually called, might be a fairlead?
