I found the chainwales hard because the wire was quite brittle!

Still, they are done and it's time to move on to the beakhead!

The sad reality has now set in that if I finish my model, I will not have enough space in my small flat to keep it (especially with a cat and budgie around!).

Moreover, I also bought the Soleil Royale, Vasa and Sovereign of the Seas to build and therefore I am going to need one hell of a bigger property in future!

Managed to finish the beakhead though. I decided to use thin strips of wood to make the two doors. It's now time to start attaching all the port hole covers that I put off doing earlier in the build because I wanted to buy some thicker thread to use than that which was supplied with the kit.

Presumably many people who finish their builds then display their ships in a case of some sorts, to keep the dust off if nothing else - is there a go to place to buy a display case?

Looking great. Are you gearing up to start rigging?

I can't wait with mine ;)
