The forward Gunwale rails are now in place, and I have some moulded brass strip, to do the trailboard. Still have to tidy up the paintwork around the front!!

I have finished touching up the paint job around the upperdeck, and used an air duster to clean up small bits which fell down to the lower Gun deck.
Now I have started doing the front and shaping and painting the scroll/trim, which I have put in place but not yet glued, as I need to build up a support behind it! It will be a while before my next post, due to work!!

I have not done much lately, as my time and money has been going on my Land Rover Defender!!! I thought I'd do the Hammock stays, then I've got to start following the instructions in the right order!!!BigGrin

Well I'm still not following the instructions, but will get back to them soon!! Hopefully you can see from the old photo of HMS Trincomalee, what I have been trying to achieve for the bow of the ship.





I put in the heads as well!!
