Stage 92 Contains: Dummy Guns (Large), Eyepins, Columns, Gun Port Lids, Rings 2mm.

Remove the ‘A’ and ‘B’ parts from the fret and smooth with sandpaper, then collect them into two piles. Glue the ‘A’ parts onto the centre of the ‘B’ parts. Paint the outside of the doors with a wood stain of your choice, paint the inside of the doors with red ochre paint, then paint with clear varnish.

Paint the two barrels from Stage 36 with clear varnish. Mark the rings around the barrels with a black pen.

Cut a 1 x 4mm wooden strip into nine 10mm lengths. Glue a strip into the end grooves of one of the unused ladder sides, as shown in Step 92E. Glue the second ladder upright to the ends of the 10mm strips. Glue the rest of the 10mm lengths into the grooves in the ladder sides. When dry, sand the ladder and paint with clear varnish.

Cut through the ladder creating a section with four rungs. Test fit the shorter ladder at the point shown in Step 92I. Adjust the angles of the ends of the uprights so that they fit flush with the deck and strip along the side. Glue the ladder into place. Repeat the same process for the second ladder then glue it in place, opposite the first.

Stage complete, carefully store any remaining parts in a stage labelled bag.

Stage 93 Contains: Columns, Blocks 4mm, Deadeyes 5mm, Lower Gallery Windows, Walnut strips 2 x 7 x 300mm, Dummy Guns (Large), Chain.

Cut a 2 x 7mm strip to fit along the starboard gunwale as indicated in Step 93A. Sand the ends smooth then glue into position, extending 2mm over the outer edge.

Take a 2 x 2mm wooden strip and hold against the side of the model, 9mm below the forecastle gunwale, up to the front of the rail from the previous step. You may want to temporarily fit the gun port frames to make sure the strip doesn’t obstruct them. Glue the strip into place. Extend the row back from the 2 x 7mm strip with another 2 x 2mm strip. Raise the aft end of the strip so it is roughly in line with the notch in the transom.

Cut two lengths of the 2 x 7mm strip to fit from the strip in Step 93A up to the gunwale above. Glue into place. Drill 14 holes, to suit the size of the pin on the columns, along the centre of the rail, spaced 10.5mm apart. Apply glue to the pin at the end of one of the columns. Glue the column into one of the holes in the rail then repeat for the rest of the columns and holes.

Lay another 2 x 7mm strip along the top of the columns from the point shown in the inset photo in Step 93H forward. If the strip does not sit flush on the columns you will need to file the quarter deck gunwale down to the same height as the columns. Glue the strip into place.
Cut a section of 2 x 7mm strip to fit from the rail on top of the columns to the cathead. Glue the strip into place.

Stage complete, carefully store any remaining parts in a stage labelled bag.

Take some leftover 0.6 x 5mm strips. Cut two 20mm lengths and glue the together. Then place onto the window and cut them in line with the edge of the cut out area, as indicated in Stage 102D. Smooth the piece with sandpaper, paint with a wood stain of your choice and mark the edges with a black pen.

Glue the first piece under the window as shown in Step 102F and repeat for the three other windows. Repeat this process for the other two window pieces.

Glue the two lower window pieces into place. Glue the last window piece into place, ensuring they are all aligned centrally.

Take the two heads and glue them into place at the bow, with the openings facing in.

Stage complete, carefully store any remaining parts in a stage labelled bag.

Drill 12 evenly spaced holes between the catheads. Glue the first column into one of the holes. Make sure it is positioned perfectly vertical. Glue the rest of the columns into place.

Retrieve three gun carriages and place them at the side of the forecastle deck at the positions shown in Step 103D. Mark a line onto the forecastle rail, aligned with the centres of the carriages. Place three circular gun ports onto the rail, aligned centrally with the lines marked in the previous step. Then drill 10 holes along the rail at the positions shown in Step 103E, with the foremost hole 10mm forward of the gun port and the aft most in line with the aft rail of the forecastle.

Remove the carriages and gun ports. Glue 10 columns into the holes made in the previous step. File three circular recesses centred with each of the marks made in Step 103D.

Place the circular gun ports into the recesses. Prepare a gun and carriage for each port to check the height is correct. The guns should be positioned in the centre of the ports. Remove the guns, carriages and ports.
