Keep on with what you are doing. You seem well capable of dealing with any issues that may arise and I`m enjoying watching your progress.

I received pack four last week and got into it today. Four more frame ribs. Two aft and two foreword. Now that I have frame ribs for every section of the ship it's interesting to see the hull take on its shape. It is difficult to clamp things with the curved shape of things. The parts slide on the glue as if it were grease. I just hold them together for a little while and let dry well overnight. I figure that there will be enough overlapping parts that it will hold together like a spider web in its finished form. What a beautiful thing this is. Working with wood is very pleasurable. I'm already daydreaming about another ship model only with sails, rigging and all. Having both hawse pieces to work on simultaneously will be nice. I still have to re-cut forward rib # I also. My mistake may not show in the end but it bugs me.
