    Thanks Skip glad you like it.
    Well I've got to do all 64 oars again, I ordered some more ladders to do the handles with ( ordered more than I needed as I could see them being usefull for other things) luckily I ordered the wrong bits.

     

     
    now when you compare them, I just have to redo all of them

    just for a bit of fun, Inspired by someone else on here,  I thought I would use some bits and pieces that yelled out to me what they wanted to be.

    Well I am so annoyed I thought I had some oars over and I had finished them but no, stupid idiot there are 32 PAIRS of oars, not 32 oars, now I have to order more of the steps to cut down for the handles, or I display it from one side only.

    Hi all, well I'm deffnitley on the last leg with this one 
    this is half way there with the oars

    just these left to do

    every single oar has this huge mould seam on it, so thats just 32 to sort out

    and here they all are with the seams removed and the white paint applied.

    I really feel this is nearing the end now, once I add the oars it will be huge, no idea what I will do with it when done, I had my warspite dio in the local library, but now thats back due to the library re-utilising the areas and no longer having room for it (a polite way of saying no one was interested in it) so now I've got that back too. argh I have no room.

    Well deserved win, and it's nice to put a face to the modeler. Great job.

    Hi all here is tonights update, I've tried to do the cannon anchors and the ammo boxes.



    also tried an experiment with the vac formed sails


    which looks most realistic

    Hi all didn't like the oar handle, too irregular, so browsing the net I found these, they are OO gauge steps (1/87) so near enough.

    But as you can see they are too wide

    so with my guage 

    I whittled them down a bit

    cut to length

    split

    and with a little bit of fettling they will all look the same now

    Hi all well here is an update on this build someone told me the clew? was missing, well apparently this is it (the loose flap of sail from the furled sail)in the first picture.



    I've added all the cannons now as well.
