  3. Thanks for the reply Henry l did think they would have but couldn't find any reference to them. Thanks again for the response Martyn
  4. Hi all I have just started rigging the guns on the main deck as they are under the cross deck and would be a pain to rigg them after it was fitted. The problem I have are the guns fitted with in haul tackle or were they pulled inboard by hand like the Vasa . I have looked for any reference to this but can't seem to find any . Cheers for any help. Martyn
  5. Hi all just wondering how far the blue paint came down the hull, on my instructions it comes down to the top of the middle gunports but on some of the pictures I have seen it comes down to the bottom of the lower gunports? So a bit confused on which one is right. Thanks in advance for any assistance. Martyn
  6. I live in deepest darkest Suffolk in the UK and have been building models for years but mostly plastic AFV and then found the joys of wooden ships about five years ago and haven't looked back. My other interests are fishing and falconry plus looking after my wife.

    Hi I was born in Kent many moons ago but moved to Suffolk 20 years ago for a slower pace of life. My ancestors came from Scotland and my Grandad was in the Royal Navy during the First World War and my dad was in the Merchant Navy on tankers in the Second World War Rgd Martyn
