  1. The upper hull planking continues. The wood is Spanish cedar.
  2. OC and Mark, dear friends, many thanks for the kind words and the likes.
  3. Thank you so much for the likes. I am back in the shipyard after a short holiday with my mom in the neighbour city. I completed gun port frames and painted them scarlet. I completed stern planking and started planking of the upper hull. I am using 1,5x5 mm of Spanish cedar strips in the upper hull and stern planking.
  4. Hello friends. After a long Summer break I have started building the US Frigate Essex. I used Aeropiccola's kit plan (which is already on the internet) to cut the bulkheads and the bulkhead former. I modified stern section of the bulkhead former according to Model Shipways' Essex kit plan and I added stern frames. I do not have a detailed plan so I will mostly make use Bob's (Rafine) Essex build log on MSW. Many thanks to Bob in advance. He did a great job on her and detailed build log. Here are the first pictures.
