Kevin posted a topic in Nautical General DiscussionHave you ever browsed through your favorite build to see what the full build looks like at the present time? Have you ever wondered what else is being built on MSW 2.0, it may be a kit, scratch, R/C, card or plastic, or any other material, including digital reconstruction. I am inviting all members to post a latest photo of their build (side elevation)and a link to that build, so everyone can see what it looks like, and give others an idea of what else is going on. I am not trying to create a multitude of build logs under one topic, just photo’s so we can all see what is going on. This will possibly help others in deciding on what to build next Anyone interested?
Another open question from the old forum. Set aside the discussion, when there could have been a side entry port on special british three deckers, if there was one, how was it closed?!? Having looked at this question already for quite a while, looking at plans at NMM and plenty of contemporary models, still saw no answer. Always the door is completely open, even if the port lids beside are closed. So I took the time and collected all the possible versions, that came so far into discussion. Does anybody have a clue? See the attached file, my personal favorite is no 6., as this is the way the side pocket entrances were closed. Also interesting no 9. as it would go with the small cabins that existed in the 1700 in between the guns when the port was introduced. The drawing shows a minimised version. Any opinions or even better hard facts? Best regards, Daniel Seitenpforte v5 en.pdf
