Stage 7 contains: Deck Piece, two wooden strips 5 x 5 x 300mm, Wooden strips 0.6 x 5 x 300mm.

Sand the deck piece as before. Measure the deck piece and divide it in two, to mark the centre line of the deck. Apply glue to the beams. Carefully place the deck piece onto the beams and push the deck down. Weigh down the deck and leave the glue to completely dry.

Prepare the Planking as before. Then use two clamps to hold the planks together, and blacken the four edges of the planks with a pencil.

Glue and apply the strips working out from centre line drawn on the deck earlier, and making sure they continue on from the planking of the fore deck.

Continue adding the strips, making sure they match the planking on the fore deck. As shown in Step F of the instructions. Cut smaller pieces of wooden strip to cover the deck next to the tops of the frames.

Glue the strips across the width of the deck, but leave the rear section uncovered. Press down strips firmly to ensure they are stuck down firmly to the deck. Leave the glue to completely dry,

Use a sharp craft knife to remove the excess of the strips along the outer perimeter of the deck. Then repeat the same operation to trim the inner edges of the openings in the centre, as shown In Step I of the instructions.

With a small file or nail file smooth the edges of the strips that surround each opening.

Take the Bowsprit and bulkhead fret and cut out the forward bulkhead with a craft knife. Smooth the surface of the piece with sandpaper. Measure and cut short lengths of Sapele strip 0.6 x 5 x 350mm just larger than the forward bulkhead. Mark a center line on the bulkhead then glue the strips down starting at the centre line working outwards. When the glue has completely dry, turn the piece over and trim off the excess strip around the edges with a craft knife. Sand the edges of the bulkhead to eliminate any imperfections then smooth the surface with sandpaper following the grain.

Apply glue to the front of frame 4. Stick the bulkhead to the rear of frame 4, making sure that the edges are flush on all sides. Clamp the bulkhead and let the glue completely dry.

Remove the bowsprit deck from the fret, push the tabs of the bowsprit deck into the slots of hull frame 1, and check that the piece rests directly on the upper portion of the false keel. Spread glue on all points of contact then stick the deck in place. Leave the glue to completely dry.

Cover the deck completely with planking, when the glue has completely dry turn the piece over and with a craft knife trim away the surplus from around the edges and Re-cut the hole in middle of the deck. Do not remove the planks from the notches at the edges. Sand the surface of the deck and the edges then make pencil marks to simulate the nails in the corners of the planks.

Use a saw to remove the viable parts of the beam under the deck. Make sure that the ends of the beams are flush with the edges of the hatches.

Test fit the deck across the beams then apply wood glue to the beams. Put the deck in place and check that is fully in contact with the glue on the cross beams. Press it down firmly then leave until the glue is completely dry.

With a craft knife separate the pieces A,B,C and D from the fret. Trim the edges and surfaces of each piece with fine sandpaper then turn the model over. Put Glue on Part A and stick it onto the false keel as shown in Step G of the instructions.

Put glue on one side of piece B and stick it to Hull frame 1, as shown in Step H of the instructions. Take piece C, and stick it in place on Hull frame 1 up against piece B. Use a set-square to make sure piece C is at 90 degrees to the hull frame. See inset photo In Step I of the instructions then leave the glue to completely dry. Put glue on piece D, and stick it in place between Hull frame 1 and Hull frame 2, Piece D should be flush with the hull frames and not the False Keel.

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