Lower Gun deck has been planked.

Unfortunately i realized that i got the wrong guns in my delivery.
They are all 12-pounders but no 32-pounders!!

Did anyone else experiance this problem?

I have to go and search for some aftermarket replacement and have to put the build on a hold until then.

That does look really good.

I checked my kit today and all of the canon barrels loom the same size. They look big so not sure what i have ended up with.

Seems to be my luck with part works - either no parts, missing parts or damaged parts :-(

Been collecting the hachette Bismarck but thinking i need to make a start on that with all its working parts.

Happy Modelling

Thanks Tony,

yeah it`s a problem with those partworks.

I checked yesterday and found one of the pump handles broken - don`t know what i will do with that!

Honestly, i stopped ordering partworks a long time ago because of all the missing parts and delivery problems.

Greetings,
Walter

I see you have done with the ugly dowels showing on the frames, exactly what I’d thought about doing. Now, I’m sure I’ll be doing it. It looks great!

Best,

Hi Walter,
Those cannon and carriages look extra special.
They will enhance the model beautifully.
Well done for sourcing them. A bit quicker than eight weeks too!!
