Stage 107 Contains: Main Chainwales, Decorations, Blocks 4mm, Crown Decorations, Wooden Strip 2 x 2 x 300mm, Gun Port Frames, Crown and Shield Decorations.

Smooth the joins between all the parts that make up the gallery balconies so that they are flush. Sand the rear of the gallery balconies smooth as well.

Recover the rectangular pieces from the frets provided with Stages 102, 103 and 104. Glue one in the centre of each of the balconies as shown in Step 107C. Before proceeding, study Steps 107E to 107J. Apply modelling putty to the joins between all of the gallery parts, you can use it liberally as you will be removing excess.

When the putty is dry, use a piece of sandpaper to smooth it flush with the wood around it. When all the surfaces are smooth remove the powder caused by sanding the putty with a dry brush. Apply a coat of clear sealant over the quarter galleries and balconies. When the sealant is dry, smooth the surfaces of the galleries and balconies with sandpaper, then remove any residue with a dry brush.

Paint the galleries, balconies and transom with ultramarine blue paint. Look at the illustration in Step 107I to see where to paint. Let the first coat of paint dry and then repeat the process until you have achieved the desired effect.

Paint along the sides of the top row of gun ports. Don’t paint the gun ports or the strakes. Look at the illustration in Step 107K to see what should be painted.

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

Stage 109 Contains: Mizzen Chainwales, Deadeyes 4mm, Deadeyes 5mm, Wooden Strip 2 x 2 x 300mm, Chain, Nails.

Make eight posts in the same way as described in Stages 55, 69 and 88 but without the recesses for the rails. Paint the heads with the same red you have used previously, then leave them aside to dry.
Fit four of the posts to the forecastle deck in the positions shown in Step 109B. Drill pilot holes for the pins then glue into place. Repeat on the starboard side of the deck.

Paint the heads of the other posts with the same red, as shown in Step 109D. If you haven’t already done so, then paint all of the gun ports with a matt black paint. This will give them a sense of depth when the frames and guns are fitted. Paint the stern and bow ports in the same way.

When the black has dried paint the inside edges of the ports of the two lower rows with red paint.

Retrieve the circular gun ports provided in Stages 87-91. Smooth them with sandpaper and fill any gaps or rough areas with filler. Once dry paint them gold. Glue the circular gun ports into their positions in the rails on either side of the forecastle deck, as shown in Step 109I. Enlarge the holes if necessary. Glue the remaining circular gun ports into the rest of the holes along the sides of the ship.

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

Stage 110 Contains: Deadeyes 4mm, Deadeyes 5mm, Gun Port Lids, Straps, Dummy Guns.

Remove the parts from the fret and glue pairs of them together, Paint the outside of the lids with the wood stain of your choice and then clear varnish. Paint the insides of the lids with red ochre paint.

Recover all of the decoration parts. Paint them all with a dark brown wash or ink, or bitumen of Judea. Before the wash has dried completely, rub a cloth along the surface to remove the majority of it leaving only a small amount in the recesses, as shown in Step 110C. This technique gives a sense of depth to the parts. Step 110D shows the difference between decorations with the wash applied and those without.

Glue two of the windows onto the two uppers ports at the bow, as shown is Step 110E. Glue four columns between the windows of the upper gallery as shown in Step 110F.

Glue eight more columns between the windows of the middle and lower gallery, as indicated by the red arrows in Step 110G. Then glue a column at either end of the windows, as indicated by the white arrows. These outer columns should match the angle of the transom.

Cut two lengths of 2 x 5mm wooden strip to roughly the height shown in Step 110H, glue above the upper windows at the edge of the transom. Paint them ultramarine blue. Retrieve the long columns and glue them to the upper windows and strips from the previous step. Step 110J shows how the columns should look when fitted properly.

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

Drill a 2mm hole in the centre of each of the gun ports. Recover all of the gun port frames, apply the detailing wash if you haven’t already and glue them over the top row of the gun ports. Step 111C shows how the starboard side should look with the frames in place. Repeat on the port side of the ship.

Recover four windows, apply the detailing wash if you haven’t already and glue them into the positions shown in Step 111D. Repeat on the other side.

Retrieve the mizzen chainwale fret from Stage 109. Remove the two pieces and sand them. Use a file to create six notches along one side, 14mm apart. At this stage it is advisable to paint the chainwales with the wood stain of your choice and leave to dry.

Glue some left over 2 x 2mm wooden strip to the side of the chainwale containing the notches. When dry, carefully sand the ends of the strip to match the curve of the wale. Drill a 1mm hole through each of the notches made in Step 111E.

Glue the chainwale to the starboard side in the position shown in Step 111H, on top of the strake. Remove four knees from the fret received with Stage 108 and sand them smooth. Stain them with the wood stain of your choice. When dry, glue the longer side to the chainwale and the shorter side to the bulwark as shown in Step 111I. Repeat Steps 111E to 111I to fit the port mizzen chainwale.

Cut four 40mm lengths of 1mm thick brass wire and prepare in the same way as in Stage 114. Glue the lengths together to create two pieces then glue them above the upper gallery windows, either side of the decoration as shown in Step 115A.

Prepare another section of doubled wire 140mm in length. Fold around the corner of the middle balcony and glue into place. Cut the front of the wire in line with the side of the balcony as indicated by the dotted line in Step 115B. Create a 50mm length of doubled wire and glue along the curved front of the middle balcony. Cut the excess in line with the side as indicated by the dotted line in Step 115C.

Prepare two doubled sections of 1mm brass wire, one 150mm long and the other 50mm long. Shape and glue the 150mm piece to the rear and side of the lower balcony and the 50mm piece at the front, as shown in the inset photo in Step 115D. Remember to trim the excess, as shown by the dotted line, from each piece before proceeding. Repeat Steps 115A to 115D on the port side.

Recover the balcony pillars from Stage 105. Apply a wash to them as done previously and then glue five to the projecting central section of the upper balcony as shown in Step 115E.

Retrieve the pillars and angled column decorations from Stages 103 and 104. Apply a wash and leave to dry. Glue them into the positions shown in Step 115F, around the upper balcony. Repeat on the port side.

Fit six of the angled columns to the middle balcony as shown in step 115G. Prepare and glue five more columns to the starboard sides of the middle and lower balconies, as indicated by the red arrows in Step 115H. Prepare and glue one of the decorations that came with Stage 112 between the two angled columns at the front of the middle gallery.

Look at the image in Step 115I and collect the relevant decorations as indicated by the red arrows. Prepare them as before and glue into position. Prepare and glue the three decorations as shown in Step 115J to the lower balcony. Repeat Steps 115H to 115J on the port side of the balconies.
