  1. Hello. I was also dealing with how to make clean edges on the gunports. On the internet i found a simple way of hand-making this. I mark the ends of the boards with a hole-shaped cork, cut it out roughly and then grind it with sandpaper on a strip. After some testing, it works.... I use the Proxxon TG 125 / E front disc grinder to grind the board ends. If needed, I slowly turn it by hand taking less material... O.
  2. Beautiful work Marsalv. I'm looking forward to a personal tour of your boat at the Czech Championship 2018 !!!!

    Incredibly clean work Amalio !!! I still admire .. O.
  4. I put the gunports on the left, the left is working ..
  5. Thank you very much Louie da fly.. I continue laying planks between gun ports, but it's very slow.. I received brass material ordered from http://www.litomysky.cz/mat/mso.htm I ordered a 0.2 mm sheet, tubes ranging from 0.3 to 1 mm and wires from 0.2 to 1 mm. Material is great.. The first door hinges are made..
  6. Before placing the curved planks, make a paper form, according to it bend the boards sideways and then according to the hull. do not create a clinker surface .. it's a wonderful job. You are going very well! Ondras.
  7. Doors placed in frame, frame bent over a template, wood shortly boiled in water .. First attempts to produce fittings. 0.2 mm brass sheet out of frames from accessories from HiSModel.com .. Still thinking about having the fittings etched, the result would definitely be better, but maybe after trying longer I'll manage to make it ..
