Thanks Mike, slow going right now.

Bill, right after I wrote that I remembered the old Babel and I have now translated many of the
captions using www.bing.com/Translate. It looks much the same. I'm not a good enough typist to
key in long passages though, in fact, I'm not a typist at all.

I can see where some sanding along the joints would be helpful.

Yes, Frank, I agree. I plan to do that.

Moving right along adding paper sections to cover the hull. There are parts included to make a card
cradle to support the model but I used them to make the same cradle from scraps of cherry that I
had on hand. It's hard to see in this photo and it still needs to be sanded and varnished.

Bob,

You can really see the lines of the hull in your latest photo here. It looks much sleeker below the water line than it appeared in the earlier photos.

Bob,

I must tip my hat to you Sir. Ship modeling is another area of no experience to me, but your execution of this rendition is spot on. Thanks for the excellent pictures and presentation. Perhaps I might try it one day.

I just didn't see how the paper strips would conform to the ribs in a smooth fashion. But now I see.

Is it a tedious process to align the strips?

Mike and Rich, Thanks for your posts.

Frank,
not too bad and if you mess up as i always do, all will be covered up with the outer planking.

I never could understand why the shipbuilders of that era thought the bow had to be so blunt. The stern of the ships had such graceful lines.



No 'heads up' displays or crash avoidance devices. A guy out on the forecastle could yell 'STOP' and be heard a little easier. The Bow was built very sturdy as 'ramming' was an option on a smaller ship. The broadside guns were useless in a frontal attack. That why the 2 aft guns were at least a small defensive option as well.

Had doctor appointments today but did get a little work done on bow, stern, and main deck.

Bob,
Ship is looking great! One can tell your really into this one by the speed you are building the model.
I'm enjoying following along.

Judging by the flooring the captain should have hired an interior decorator.

Looking at the smooth lines of hull, it sure doesn't look like a paper model.

Dave, Frank, Jeff, and George, thanks for commenting.
Doesn't look like much but I did get some work done on the cabin walls. These will help
place the side walls.

I'm having a hard time making a decision. All the paper parts are included in the kit to
make the armament but if I include the armament I would like to make something a bit
better. Remember, I am making a hull only model so having the armament in place is
optional, hull models are shown either way. That decision has to be made before the next
upper decks are added because some areas will no longer be accessible.
