I'm just amazed at this project...  unbelievable the amount of wood and work and that's with power tools.  Can anyone fathom the amount of labor needed back 200-300 years ago to build one of these?

Visited the construction site again. Planking is in progress, some spars are ready.

Note that the deck beams seems to be made out of a single wood piece. Or maybe laminated out of multiple pieces? Or I just can't find the joints?

Thanks a lot, Mike, for keeping this news going. I presume the cannon barrels are cast in resin -- judging by the way that guy is casually cradling one in his arms.

Some are real, the ship will participste in parades and need to shoot "empty" shots.
But the rest is fake, to reduce the weight and cost. Not sure what material it is.

I like that shot of the gundeck with the model of the ship sitting out in the middle of it.  A bit scary to have it there with all the construction and dust though.

It was put there for some movie shooting, as the cannon, etc. So temporarily, no construction work around.

And, frankly, I haven't saw any construction updates for a while, it is worrying! Hope the project funding was not frozen.

Few good videos released:

1) From inside the hull, various decks, planking, etc:

 

A part of the narrative is that the bow planking was too complex to bend, so they ended up laminating it from multiple thin planks, right on the hull.

 

2) From the rigging workslop, including capstan and boats:

Just to 2 new photos in the facebook group, not much... A lot of tours & events, but mostly silence when it comes to actually building the ship. Not sure what is going on with the project. The official statement is still "planning to launch in the mid 2017". Okay then!
