Quarterdeck trimmed out, skid beams and ladders added. Just the top 3x3 trimmer sections to add.
The bulwark capping strips are causing a delay. The 12x2 strip is missing from pack 60 and 2 of the 10x2 strips from pack 58 are so badly cut that I cannot use them. New strips ordered from local modelling shop but due to Royal Mail hold-ups, I have no idea when they will arrive.

New toys arrived this morning.
First one was a couple of pairs of hackle pliers which I am using to hold rigging blocks. The original surgical grips that I was using are a little too tight on some of the small blocks.
Second one was a supply of 10mm stanchions to replace the brass eye bolts supplied with the kit. I just think they look a little better. Not everyone's choice, but I like them.
Third toy to arrive was the box of assorted drill bits. With a little bit of diligence, I can keep them sorted into sizes......he said!! Cool Cool

Progress has not been as I would have liked but the main mast is now complete and the gunwale capping are fitted after a bit of a delay due to broken parts in the issues. I also fitted the two rear guns while the capping were off to make my fumbling a bit easier!Cool
I hope everyone is managing to stay safe and healthy and getting plenty of modelling done.
