Thanks for the good words guys.

Pete, there is a lot of deck furniture to be made yet for on the decks, Charlie Noble is
among that group and he will be seen standing on the fore upper deck between the two hatches. The
ship's stove is in between the two sets of doors.

Bob,

Looking forward to this, but then I look forward to all of your stuff! Hopefully there will be no crew members "paying their respects" to Master Noble....

Bob, I'm surprised to hear Charlie Noble is aboard! Rumor has it Noble's been on almost every one of His Majesty's Ships including the notorious HMS Deciduous,
seen hovering over the galley where large quantities of the ship's larder seemed to vanish like smoke.

It's no wonder Charlie is on board, Bob gave away all of the businesses & Homes that he once frequented in the basement.
Now I guess it's a sailors life for him.

Pete, Bill, and Greg, thanks for your comments.

Here's the regular hull shot to follow along with previous posts. A lot of "little things"
have been added but most of the new work pertains to the ship's head.







One of the small hints in English in the kit states that an improvement on the model would
be to sculpt the stern decorations and figurehead with Sculpy. I agree with that but
in keeping to the title of "Paper Ship"as much as possible, I decided to leave it at
the paper carvings supplied.

Bob

Bob,

I have been lurking in the background and I must add that this is top-notch, hands-down top modeling for sure.. and you have experience in building many types of ships, sail on !

Hi,Bob, this is an amazing model hard to believe it is all paper and card stock! Is this paper self stick or you have to spread the glue out? Keep up the great work.
Wish my model had the parts all cut out for me!#128546;

Bob, looks like a lot of tiny tricky cutting involved in the making up of that bow.
Wonderful work!

Beautiful job on a complicated build! Please tell Charlie he can visit his house that he donated to the Hard Times RR anytime he wishes.

Bob, when you mentioned above that most of the new work pertained to the ship's head, an entirely different image came to mind than the figurehead :)
Glad you weren't mucking about that one !

Meanwhile, nobody asked about the reference to the HMS Deciduous...anyone curious at all? :)
