I finally fixed the last beam formwork, which fits into the oarlocks of the transom:

Meanwhile, I continued working on the opening of the gunboats of the bridge and the openings for the scuttles of the oars; for them I made ​​a template sheet to try to make them all equal

I also started to prepare the battens of flowers: job rather difficult to prepare, especially because you do not have much space to be able to score perfectly all measures

Before continuing the work inside, I decided to finish the topsides on the outside because I want to remove all the bolts that cause me many problems and hassles by cutting the excess coast and finishing on the gunwale.
I then prepared the tool, converted from an old saw blade and molded with a small disk,  for the course that I started to fix

Now it begins to outline the final form of this corvette, at least on the starboard side: I fixed the piece of plank molded bow, prepared and glued the other strip molded, smaller, which limits the performance of the formwork and I started to cut and trim oarlocks of double coasts

Thank you!!  :) :)

 

Small forward: I set the molded course  on the left side and I started to wrap the starboard side starting with the two courses between the moldings at the stern, ebony

This is my "powerful" cutting tool for the oarlocks of double coasts:

I continued with the bandage of the topsides, I realized I had made a serious error to paste the thresholds of the gunboats: the angle between the threshold and the side wall is pretty sharp and this did not allow for a perfect installation of the course below thresholds, for obvious reasons, leaving a little 'air.
I removed very carefully thresholds and set the course and the joints redone, everything went perfectly, although I remove a threshold, have resulted in the rupture of an oarlock to the coast, but this will not be seen because it will be covered by the plating .

I finished the installation of the courses between the doors and started to finish with fine sandpaper to remove the glue residue and the excess of black cardboard. I also finished the edges of the gunboats and scuttles the oars.

Well done !

thank you very much, friends!!!

 

I started to prepare the two courses of the battens "of the flowers" of the left side. A work quite long, since I've done all the joints by hand with a sharp knife.
